This paper describes the process of implementing a curriculum management system that supports both a district curriculum and data initiative in the Corpus Christi Independent School District (CCISD) in Texas. The authors discuss the selection and implementation process, the specific challenges and successes that the district encountered, and questions regarding future sustainability. The district's experience is outlined in five parts: choosing a system, implementing the CMS and Data Initiative, professional development, SchoolNET usage statistics, and discussion of the process in its entirety.
