MMS users in the news

MMS users from Pennsylvania School Districts were recently interviewed by Pittsburgh Parent Magazine. “Exploring the PA Core Standards” by Jill L. Ferguson hopes to clarify some of the common misconceptions about the Common Core in PA. We are grateful to our clients, Mandy Filioli of Burgettstown School District, and Joetta Britvich of Albert Gallatin School District for speaking to these important issues.

Welcome to the newest MMS OnLine users

Computer Resources would like to welcome the following schools and districts to MMS OnLine:

  • Blue Ridge School District
  • Imani Circle Education Center
  • St Clair School District
  • Wallingford Swarthmore School District

MMS OnLine offers the same rock-solid student information platform found in MMS, but with a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) implementation. The SaaS model of MMS OnLine represents a great value for schools, eliminating the overhead of software licensing, server maintenance, and multiple vendor contracts. MMS OnLine enables schools to streamline the management of their student information so school administrators can keep their staff focused on improving instruction, instead of maintaining complex computerized systems. Contact us at info@cri-mms.com if you’d like more information about MMS OnLine for your school.

Webinar Subscription FAQs:

How can I register for a MMS Training Webinar?

Visit the webinar registration calendar on our website.

How much does it cost to attend a MMS training webinar?
When you have a MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscription, you may attend MMS webinars at absolutely no additional cost. Without a MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscription, there is a charge for each connection. MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscriptions start at $900 per year.

If I have a MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscription, what should I do when the website displays a fee when I register?
Because of your special status, this can simply be ignored. Whenever you register for a MMS training webinar, we will ensure that your subscription is valid. If so, we send you connection details by email to confirm your registration. If you have a subscription, you would have received an email entitled, “Unlimited Webinar Subscription Credentials,” that contains your username and password information.
