Success Stories

Cayen AS21 has positively has strengthened education and communities in Georgia...

"Cayen AS21 has positively has strengthened education and communities in Georgia, through the 21st CCLC program, in a number of ways. First and more broadly, it requires the programs to focus on data. Through the entering of data and analysis of reports, our programs are able to determine which students are receiving the greatest benefit from the program. This allows the programs to identify the strategies that are most successful and apply them across the program. Second, our state places a strong emphasis on attendance. We utilize the attendance reports in AS21 to monitor our programs’ attendance and provide focused technical assistance on those programs that are struggling to meet their attendance goals. As a state, we have seen significant gains in the number of students served because we are targeting those programs that have the greatest opportunity for improvement. Finally, we utilize a number of reports in AS21 to assist with our formal monitoring. Our programs are able to utilize these reports throughout the year to ensure they are meeting state and Federal requirements."

Thank you Cayen Systems for "having our back."

"The Wausau School District has been using the Cayen Systems for Out-of-School attendance and record keeping since 2007. This has been a tremendous resource for 21st Century grant reporting. We run our programs under multiple funding sources and the ability to track attendance and create reports tied to the appropriate funding is valuable. I appreciate the ability to monitor at a District level and prepare reports as needed for principals and other stakeholders.

Cayen Systems demonstrates responsiveness to client needs and has helped with gathering of data needed with some additional tracking requested by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Cayen Systems also keeps abreast of reporting requirements by the US Department of Education and structures the system to mirror the federal reporting. This will be changing this year and I feel confident that Cayen Systems will help with this transition.

The beginning and the end of the school year always tend to be more stressful times with program start up and final completion of the APR. Cayen staff responds quickly to requests for tech support. I can always talk with a person when needed and receive excellent customer service.

Cayen Systems has been providing increased outreach to help keep clients knowledgeable of any changes and new features. With the loss of the federal PPICS system, I was pleased to know that I still have access to historical data in the Cayen Data System. Thank you Cayen Systems for “having our back.”"
