At LINQ we believe in removing the obstacles to sound financial controls that K12 school administrators face while educating our children. We do this by designing solutions that are truly integrated, visually familiar, and easy to use. We focus on state and federal regulations and our know-how is reflected in how we build and implement our software. We put the customer first from product design to implementation to industry-leading customer care. We understand that running a school system is complex and complicated, and becoming more so due to tighter budgets and increased state and federal mandates. While we cannot change the scope of your operations, you can manage your district more effectively with LINQ. Discover how our platform integrates key school district technologies into a single system and gives you immediate access to relevant information needed to make decisions to better serve students, parents, and administration.
