TeacherEase Celebrates Catholic Schools Week

Elmhurst, IL (January 28, 2011) - Common Goal Systems, makers of the web-based gradebook TeacherEase, supports Catholic Schools Week (January 30-Febraury 5, 2011) with a special offer. Catholic schools new to TeacherEase can try the web-based gradebook and lesson planner for free through June 30, 2011. "As Catholic schools across the country celebrate high standards and the quality of Catholic education, we wanted to give them a tool to get even better," says Pat Helmers, Vice President of Sales for the company. "TeacherEase is an excellent way to boost enrollment, increase parent communication, modernize technology infrastructure, and save teachers' time."

TeacherEase manages all aspects of a K-12 classroom via the Internet - grades, assignments, behavior, attendance, progress reports, and more. Parents can access information about their children in real-time via the parent portal. TeacherEase is extremely configurable and supports the needs of Catholic schools. Cloud computing-based technology makes it easy for schools to run the program without any special equipment or software.

According to Melissa Nowatzke, Vice Principal of O'Hara Catholic School in Eugene, OR, "As a school administrator, using TeacherEase school-wide was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Our teachers love the gradebook, report cards, and having parents track student progress from home! Parents constantly tell me how useful it is when working with children. Customer support is great too! I can always speak to a knowledgeable and helpful support tech. The program is easy to implement and they are a joy to talk to!"

TeacherEase is being used by hundreds of Catholic schools in the U.S. The company also develops a student management system, SchoolInsight. This system includes NCEA reports, customizable report cards, family contacts, demographics, tuition/fees, scheduling, and online registration.
