Ahhhh, Summer what a wonderful time of the year. The sun is shining. The weather is fantastic. School is out. Things are simply calmer. But don’t get too comfy. Let’s not forget what’s lurking around the corner. Registration Season!
Traditional, manual registration is mired with challenges and frustrations. Parents fill-out a hand-written form with multiple pages of personal information, including dates, addresses, and phone numbers. Attached are copies of all the important, required documents. AND the whole process is duplicated if they are registering more than one child. What this translates to for office staff is a mountain of paperwork. The registration information then has to be entered manually, leaving lots of room for minor errors that can cause major problems.
Say goodbye to your calm, breezy summer and say hello to a ton of tedious data entry.
Wouldn’t it be nice if your Student Information System could bridge the gap between the community and the school. Well, OnCourse’s SIS is doing just that. We’ve built the bridge and paved the way to our newest feature, Online Registration.
Parents simply click a link located on your district website, and they’re on their way to registering their child. Upon completion, the form will be forwarded to your school. No outside integrations needed!
All submissions will be directed to the school administrator’s Online Registration inbox. Here, submissions are reviewed, changes are made and forms are either approved or rejected. And after you’ve finalized a registration form, OnCourse asks if you’d like to enroll the new student. Yep, just like that an enrollment record is automatically generated. You just have to include the effective date, entry code, and tuition type. It’s that easy.
Are you ready to save time, increase accuracy, and streamline communication? Just give us a call and we’ll get you started today.
