openSIS is an open source student information system for public and non-public schools. The software rivals costly commercial alternatives in appearance, functionality and ease of use and administration. openSIS is developed and maintained by Open Solutions for Education (OS4Ed), a leading provider of open solutions.

OS4Ed aims to produce an open source web-based package that is quick to learn and have the same functionality as commercial alternatives. It comes packed with features that include student demographic info, scheduling, grade book, attendance, report cards, eligibility, transcripts, parent portal, student portal and more.

openSIS is written in the PHP programming language and uses the PostgreSQL and MySQL database system to store information. The application is available in three editions: Community edition (openSIS Lite), Schools edition (openSIS Pro), and District Edition (openSIS Pro).
