The Arlington Independent School District in Texas, a 64,000 student district, has expanded its partnership with InfoSnap by moving their open transfer process online. In addition to InfoSnap providing the Arlington ISD with a customized online enrollment and registration solution, the district selected InfoSnap to streamline their student transfer process.
InfoSnap provides an innovative, secure, and scalable infrastructure for the Arlington ISD to enroll and register students. The School Choice solution will provide an efficient, transparent, and auditable system for administrative staff to manage the open transfer applications. Arlington also implemented Language Localization which meets the need of this diverse population by providing forms online in Spanish. Additionally, the Arlington ISD uses InfoSnap’s School Locator, which allows school staff to pre-identify a family’s school eligibility based on their postal address. This prevents families from registering students at the incorrect school.
“Our board of trustees wanted to move away from an in-person, paper solution. Families were filling out an abundance of paperwork and we needed to improve that experience for them,” said Mark Murray, Director of Technical Services and Systems Integration at Arlington. “Our customized online solution provides a way to not only collect data from families but allows us to capture all of the forms and signatures we need.”
The open transfer process at the Arlington ISD allows families to transfer students to any school in the district as long as seats are available. Prior to InfoSnap, some parents would camp out at the administration building for up to a week in tents and RVs in order to be first in line for their choices.
“Our customized School Choice solution will optimize the level of effort and time this process would normally take. Families will no longer have to give up a week of their time to camp out at the administration building. Everything will be streamlined across our 75 schools, and that’s the benefit of partnering with InfoSnap,” notes Murray.
The data submitted by families are reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet the Arlington ISD’s policies and then delivered into the district’s TEAMS student information system. “This efficiency improves the accuracy of data we collect on an annual basis as well as decreases the workload for staff at the schools,” said Murray.
“Throughout our partnership, we've found InfoSnap to be incredibly responsive to our needs. Together, we share a continuous commitment to innovation and the use of technology to improve processes and create efficiencies,” adds Murray.
