Student Information SystemsThe 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.
HISD Connect 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 HISD Connect is often provided to other HISD data systems. Reports that go to the Texas Education Agency based on student data are generated from HISD Connect or from data collected in HISD Connect. The SIS Department is responsible for operating and maintaining HISD Connect and for supporting end users of the system.
