Vanco and Skyward Sign Preferred Partner Agreement through 2026

Today, Vanco has great news to share. We're extending our partnership with Skyward, a leading K-12 administration software provider, announce the extension of their partnership agreement for five more years. As Skyward's preferred payments partner, Vanco will continue providing school districts with the best tools for managing fee collection from parents and students through 2026.

"Working as partners, Vanco and Skyward offer school districts and students' families a completely seamless experience for making payments and collecting fees," said Shawn Boom, Vanco CEO. "Through our integration with Skyward, school staff members have been saved countless hours of accounting work, while district families enjoy the convenience of a single online place to make every type of school payment. We're looking forward to collaborating closely with Skyward to provide even more tools and services for school staff and parents."

With the extended partnership, districts using Skyward will be able to simplify payments and continue to use all of Skyward's best-in-class technologies. Vanco's payments software integrates directly into Skyward's Qmlativ Student Management Suite to streamline payments and reconciliation. Plus, parents always know where to go to make payments. Together, the companies provide districts a one-stop shop for day-to-day school management and secure online payments. 

"We're excited to continue our relationship with Vanco," said Dave Ilkka, Skyward's vice president of new business development. "Providing a seamless way to pay student fees creates an efficient process for both parents and districts. Centralized fee management has become an absolute necessity for schools and the integration between Vanco and Skyward allows fees to be paid quickly through our Family Access portal."
