Every Saturday from April 3rd through May 15th, technical teams will be performing maintenance between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. to ensure systems and applications are performing on the AWS platform.
During this time school staff, students and families may experience performance degradation, temporary outages and delayed dashboard data and reports. This includes but is not limited to the following systems: OLS, OMHS
As announced in 2019, Stride is continuing to invest in our digital infrastructure to improve the speed, security, and reliability of our software and improve the quality of our software development and delivery timelines. To accomplish this, over the last 24 months nearly every application has been transitioned to a cloud-based AWS replacement. These maintenance windows are needed to ensure all applications are working as expected.
The transition to AWS brings the following benefits:
Speed: help pages load faster for students and staff
Security: protect against hacking attacks and keep student and school data private
Reliability: reduce downtime and outages so students and school staff can work anytime, anywhere
Quality: automate software deployment and testing
Delivery: create and release enhancements and new features more frequently
