New Student Information System (SIS) Is Coming As Columbus CSD Switches From PowerSchool To
Infinite Campus

July 25, 2022

The Columbus Community School District will be switching from PowerSchool to Infinite Campus for the 2022- 23 School Year with the eRegistration module going live on August 8, 2022. This changeover began in 2020 when CCSD began exploring Student Information System (SIS) options that will best serve all stakeholders.

This exploration stemmed from the district examining other SIS’s to best serve stakeholders; the three main ones in Iowa include PowerSchool, JMC, and Infinite Campus. The main factors used in this consideration included a cost analysis, support, and a unified, centralized system for families including a (one) universal login for all services.

Since late January 2022, staff at both the district and building levels have been involved in trainings and migration of information for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. Our technology department, counselors, administrators, and teachers have been essential in helping to get things ready.

As with any change, we expect there to be hiccups and growing pains once we go live, but CCSD truly believes that the use of Infinite Campus will be a positive change for our students, staff, and families.

Information about eRegistration for the 2022-23 school year will be released and sent to all families on Friday, August 5th, by 4:00 pm so parents and guardians may begin registering on Monday, August 8, 2022. We will have in-person registration at Roundy Elementary on Monday, August 8th from 3-8 p.m. and Tuesday, August 9th from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. if you would prefer to register in person.

Columbus Families:

During the 2022 -2023 school year, free lunch and breakfast was available to all students due to the Covid- 19 Pandemic. The USDA has decided that Breakfast and Lunch will resume being full price( Breakfast $1.45 and Lunch $2.55) for the 22 -23 school year. We appreciate your understanding as this is not a local decision, but a decision made by the USDA and Federal Government. Your student(S) may qualify for free or reduced price meals by filling out the 2022-2023 Iowa Application for Free & Reduced Price School Meals. If qualified, the reduced price is $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch. Applications will be available starting July for the 2022-2023 school year. Information on full meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year will be available in the near future as well. Thank you for your time.

Bus Route Reduction Information

On Monday, March 21, 2022, we will be moving some of our bus stops to other routes to help absorb a route. Some goals we have with this are 1) to affect as few families as possible. 2) keep times as close as possible to what they were before. 3) help maintain our substitute driver pool.
Routes affected will be the alligator, dog, elephant, frog, and giraffe. Attached is a map of the changes, the five routes highlighted in differing colors, with the route's animal mascot, and estimated pick-up times noted.
We are planning to make contact with those families affected by the change. As with any bus stop time we give, these times are +/- five minutes. So, a ten-minute window for the bus to arrive. Road and weather conditions, mechanical issues, etc. can often alter our stop times. Please be patient with us as we implement these changes. If you have any questions, please contact your child's building office. Thank you.
Tyler Hinkhouse, Transportation Director
