K-12 Online™ started in 2009 when Michelle Sam, a kindergarten parent, was appalled by the amount of paper she received for her daughter's registration.  Not only were there over 25 forms to complete, but also much of the information needed was redundant.  The forms took about 45 minutes to complete, which included writing five different checks for payments to various organizations.  Submitting the forms at school was also a long process, with a wait time of over an hour.  As a school volunteer, Michelle also noticed that many of the completed forms were thrown away by the school. Thus, as a management consultant, she decided to help the school develop workflows and processes that would streamline its registration process, save the school, district money and improve the parents experience!  From the beginning, Michelle and her team have worked with parents, adjunct organizations, school and district admins to develop a comprehensive and robust school payment & tuition management system that would meet schools' needs and the demands of today's parents. 

K-12 Online™ focuses on developing its software not only for public schools, but with additional features that benefit smaller private schools. The tuition management module have been created to alleviate admin from hours of management and babysitting as well as saving parents thousands of dollars in fees.  Parents also appreciate the ease of use and transparency of the tuition system. K-12 Online has grown substantially to service all types of schools nationwide and in Canada.

What they say

Most importantly, the registration process has been overwhelmingly popular with our parents, who no longer dread the registration packet of papers they used to spend hours filling out with the same information over and over again. It is times for schools to incorporate this new technology` to make `the start of school an enjoyable and efficient experience for all.
