Oak Lawn Community High School District 229 in Illinois, will move from a paper-based system to an online solution for registering new and returning students. The district partnered with InfoSnap for a customized solution that will streamline new and annual student registration through seamless integration between InfoSnap and Oak Lawn’s student information system (SIS), Skyward.
“We knew we were going to go paperless, so we sought out a solution that not only integrates well with our SIS but would allow families to upload documents to eliminate the inconvenience of standing in line for hours at our school,” said Joseph McCurdy, Assistant Principal at Oak Lawn.
Through InfoSnap, Oak Lawn families will securely scan and upload copies of documents, including birth certificates, proof of residence, and immunization records. Families who have more than one child within the district can ‘snap’ data from one student to another. The use of SmartForm™ technology, an intuitive tool built into the solution, will collect relevant data based on previously entered information or choices (grade, activities, medical history, etc.).
The data submitted by families are reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet Oak Lawn’s processes and then delivered into the district’s Skyward student information system. This will improve the accuracy of data collected on an annual basis.
“We’ll have one streamlined process. We’re excited about partnering with InfoSnap because we’ll be able to provide convenience for our families and efficiency for our school staff. InfoSnap is going to transform our entire student registration process into one intuitive solution,” said McCurdy.
