New Foundations Charter School in Philadelphia, PA, will move their application, lottery, wait list management, and student enrollment process online with a customized solution from InfoSnap. The solution will be developed to meet the school’s processes and polices in order to run an auditable and transparent lottery for applicants and allow both new and returning students to complete their enrollment online.
“Managing 7500 applications a year is not only time-consuming, but also costly. Our administrative personnel would review each submission and enter the data into our student information system. We needed a comprehensive solution in place that would allow applicants to apply online, run a transparent lottery, and then enroll our students. InfoSnap will execute all of those steps for our school,” said Paul Stadelberger, Chief Executive Officer at New Foundations.
In the InfoSnap administrative portal, a robust toolset complete with an audit log will facilitate the daunting waitlist management process. These tools will automatically adjust the waitlist as seats are accepted or declined, providing both families and school staff with peace of mind.
The solution will offer convenience for families. During the enrollment process, families who have more than one child at New Foundations 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.).
“By implementing InfoSnap, families won’t have to fill out so much paperwork. It will be a much simpler process to apply to our school and enroll students on an annual basis. The pre-population of data will also make the process of re-enrollment quicker,” notes Stadelberger.
New Foundations will set up computers at the school for families who don’t have internet access at home. The school is transitioning from a paper-heavy, labor-intensive, and obscure lottery process to a transparent, tamper-proof online solution. “InfoSnap will make it easy for us to be held accountable by the school district of Philadelphia to run an auditable lottery. Everything will be streamlined in a way that will positively affect our community and school staff,” said Stadelberger.
