Strength in Partnership Results in Reliable K-12 School Nutrition Management
Harris School Solutions (Harris), the premier provider of technology software in the K-12 market, has published a new customer case study featuring Burbank Unified School District (BUSD) and their highly successful K-12 school nutrition program. In 2000, BUSD thoroughly researched the K-12 nutrition market, and ultimately retained the services of Harris to upgrade to new technology that would expand and enhance its food service operations. The study outlines the successful, ongoing partnership between BUSD and Harris, and introduces the flexible nutrition solution, eTrition, as well as the partnership with J2 Retail Systems and their impressive PC-based touchscreen terminals. Both of these exceptional products ensure seamless transactions for the provision of nutrition services , payments management, and statutory reporting, which ranges from meals consumed to full nutritional analysis.
The town of Burbank, with its 100,000+ residents, is well-served by the Burbank Unified School District, which is rated as one of the most high-achieving, competitive school districts in the Los Angeles area. The school district provides a comprehensive, balanced educational program for kindergarten through grade 12. Providing eleven K-5 elementary schools, three middle schools, three comprehensive high schools, plus an adult continuation high school and a community day school, the district serves a diverse and culturally-enriched student population of more than 15,400.
When researching options to upgrade existing technology, the district knew they wanted a powerful solution. Kathy Sessinghaus, Director of Food Services stated, “We wanted to take advantage of more sophisticated technology that was available.”
Widely recognized as the leader in K-12 school nutrition solutions, Harris’ flagship web-based nutrition solution, eTrition, a modular, centralized system, combined with the J2 touchscreen terminals, enables Burbank USD to greatly improve its efforts to combine technology services with student information. With this integration, students receive nutritious meals, parents benefit with efficient, online payment services, and school district personnel have a powerful tool to manage the food service operation.
