Since 2006, Focus School Software has centered our product development, services, and company culture around one fundamental concept…improving the educational environment for all stakeholders in a student’s life.
Simply put, our FOCUS is on every user of our solutions, from students and parents to teachers, administrators, counselors, and everyone in between.
- We develop features to simplify daily tasks, improve communication, streamline processes, and guide data informed decisions.
- We have curated a team of 100+ professionals that share a passion for education, many of whom came from educational backgrounds, giving them a true advantage and an understanding of the challenges faced by educators.
- We listen to our clients, respond to their needs, and provide them with personalized service.
This approach has allowed us to increase our product offerings, which now include our flagship K12 Student Information System, CTE/Adult Ed Student Information System, Enterprise Resource Planning System, Assessment System, Before and After-Care Solution, Special Student Services System, Attendance and Tardy Solutions, Community Mobile App, Analytics and Dashboards, and our stand-alone Gradebook and Scheduling Solutions.
We provide this suite of products to both the K-12 and postsecondary educational software marketplace. Our success now includes implementing these solutions in five (5) of the largest districts in the country, three-fourths of the districts in Florida and serving 2,500,000 students across the country in Arizona, California, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Washington.
Focus School Software now employs over 100 talented team members, led by our dedicated Executive and Management Teams below. Many of our training and support staff came from school districts that use our Solutions, arming them with first-hand user experience.

Under Shannon’s leadership in 2013, Focus School Software was awarded a contract by the School Board of Broward County for Workforce Education Student Information System. After this successful implementation, Focus’ Postsecondary System was deemed the chosen vendor by the FLDOE for all Florida school districts awarded Postsecondary system adoption grants - the District Workforce Education Student Information System Grant, approved by Florida Legislature, signed by the Governor.
The Focus system is now used by 26 Florida School Districts (including a successful early system go-live with over 67,000 Continuing Education students for the Miami-Dade County School District), Los Angeles Unified School district, and is currently being implemented in Harris County, Pennsylvania.
