Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) January 31, 2007
Every year parents and teachers across America experience the annual rite of passage called the parent-teacher conference. Half the battle is simply scheduling all of the conferences. First, teachers send home a schedule of available times with the students. Parents then select their top dates and times and send a note back with the student. Next, teachers go through all of the papers to try to build one comprehensive schedule, and finally the teacher sends home new notes to all the parents with the final confirmations. With today's Internet technology, this process is not only cumbersome but completely unnecessary.
Appointment-Plus has announced a new application for its web-based scheduling system that allows teachers, schools, and administrators the ability to eliminate the hassles and guesswork related to parent-teacher conferences and many other scheduling problems. Appointment-Plus allows each teacher to customize an online parent-teacher conference schedule and parents to sign up for dates and times via the Internet. Appointment-Plus sends automatic email reminders for scheduled appointments. The system also automatically databases the student/parent and appointment information creating a record for future reference.
Most schools can implement this system for all teachers to utilize for less than $200 per year per school. This pricing allows the service to be affordable for districts, schools and even individual teachers. The system is completely web-based and requires no software installation at all by the schools.
The Appointment-Plus application for parent-teacher conferences has already proven to be a success for schools across the country. The system has been implemented at elementary and secondary schools. "Using Appointment-Plus software was a huge improvement in scheduling parent-teacher conferences. Parents were very pleased with the simplicity and ease of the online registration," noted Galit Zielinski, Office of the Head of School, Walnut Hill School, Natick, Massachusetts.
In addition to the many elementary and secondary school applications, the system has also been implemented for educational applications at many higher education institutions such as Penn State University, the University of Delaware, and the University of Mississippi.
