- Link up of district’s Quorum site directly to your public website;

“We wanted to offer our members the best available option in paperless board meeting services and our partnership with Sparq Data will bring them exactly that option,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said.
“Quorum puts everything board members and administrators need in one place to run their school board meeting, as well as offers other features to help manage documents and information.”
What Quorum Users are Saying:
Wagner Community School District was the first Quorum subscriber and Business Manager Lory DuFrain called the transition to the program “seamless.”
“The Wagner Community School District administrative team and school board are very impressed with (Quorum),” DuFrain said, adding that the Sparq Data team “has been right there to answer any and all questions.”
“It is a very user friendly program for all to grasp. Thank you ASBSD and Sparqdata for this opportunity.”
In addition, Wagner Community School Superintendent Shad Storley cited the system’s elimination of excessive mailings and immediate availability of information as benefits of the service.
“I like how the information is uploaded and is immediately available to users whether it is administration or school board members,” Storley noted. “As a new person to the system, the Quorum System eliminates sending cumbersome information by mail.”
Wolsey-Wessington School District is also a Quorum subscriber and Business Manager Amy Langbehn noted the district’s board members prefer the one-stop-shop the service provides them.
“The board likes that we went back to paperless (meetings) and just have one place where everything is stored at and easy to find,” Langbehn
