Student Information Systems
The mission of the Student Information Systems (SIS) Department is to provide overall management of the student information system for the benefit of the students in the district. Our goal is to provide teachers, administrators and department personnel with information and tools to support student performance and assist in student growth.
Chancery SMS is the student information system used by HISD. Schools use the software to perform various functions including student registration and enrollment, attendance tracking, grade reporting, and creation of student transcripts. Data that is collected in Chancery is often provided to other HISD data systems. Reports that go to the Texas Education Agency based on student data are generated from Chancery or from data collected in Chancery. The SIS Department is responsible for operating and maintaining Chancery SMS and for supporting end users of the system.
