The Alabama State Board of Education approved Stacy Royster’s new position as Program Coordinator for the implementation of the State Student Information System at the meeting.

Royster has been Technology Director of Opelika City Schools since 2013 and was approached about this new position because she was one of the pilots for the country’s new student information system.

For the past three years she has learned and tested the program while teaching other districts how to use it.

“I am passionate about teaching information to people, whether I teach students or adults,” said Royster.

The new program manages all of the information, including student data, enrollment, grades, discipline, attendance, and more.

Royster said the state has decided that someone at the state level will be responsible for this new program.

In Royster’s new position, she will help various districts in Alabama with policy and train them on how to implement the program.

“I like giving people a clear understanding of how things work so they can make informed decisions that will benefit their district,” said Royster. “I’m very excited and looking forward to it.”
