Some California school districts have gotten way ahead of the curve on paperwork reduction, green initiatives, and parent satisfaction, not to mention administrative cost savings, quick access to information, and stress reduction for school personnel.
For one school district in California, K-12 Online has revolutionized the registration process. There are countless benefits to utilizing online registration’s online forms and integrated webstore.
According to Saul Gleser, Assistant High School Principal, registration used to have 40-60 papers in a welcome packet. Parents filled out the same information hundreds of times. Inevitably, when returning the forms on registration day, some students left some papers at home, which made for a very long registration day. For the school secretaries, this meant months of sorting, alphabetizing, filing, and entering new information into the student information system.
Jireh Infosystems developed K-12 Online, a time-saving, logical, effortless online registration system for parents and a very user-friendly online school management software system for schools.
Schools are able to create master schedules earlier as a result of K-12 Online’s ability to track the registration progress of each student. Nurses instantly know of any health concerns. PTAs instantly have access to volunteers. ASB instantly knows the quantities of items needing to be purchased. Registration has saved students and parents time, reducing the time spent waiting in lines from hours to mere minutes.
K-12 Online is effortless from the parent’s perspective and instantaneous from the school’s perspective. It makes registration quick and efficient. K-12 Online gets the school year off to a great start, and usually, registration is the first impression of the school. For this particular school, parents have been very excited, and the response has been overwhelming! Secretaries and administrators love it and couldn’t be happier.
