Flexibility is one component InfoSnap has that others don’t. We looked at competitors and talked to neighboring districts. Other online solutions won’t allow users to go past a page unless it is completed and that’s too limiting.

Kershaw County School District in South Carolina will implement an online student registration solution with Spanish translation and payment collection. The 10,500 student district partnered with InfoSnap to design and develop a comprehensive solution to improve business processes for administrative staff and increase family satisfaction. InfoSnap’s award winning PowerSchool integration will effectuate real-time, on-demand data transfer between the two systems.
“We have a goal to make the registration process more parent-friendly for our families. InfoSnap is providing our district with an extensive solution that enables families to register students on their own time as well as pay for school related fees all at once,” said Mary Anne Byrd, Director of Communications at Kershaw County School District.
The electronic format will allow families who have more than one child in the district to ‘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 is reviewed and formatted to meet the district’s policies and then delivered into PowerSchool, resulting in up-to-date, accurate records on the first day of school.
“Flexibility is one component InfoSnap has that others don’t. We looked at competitors and talked to neighboring districts. Other online solutions won’t allow users to go past a page unless it is completed and that’s too limiting. With InfoSnap, families can start and stop the registration process and go back to fill in any required information before submission,” notes Byrd.
Kershaw County School District will implement InfoSnap’s Payment Management Service, which will allow administrators to easily collect and report on all fees and donations at the time of form submission. In addition, InfoSnap’s Language Localization will meet the need of this diverse population by providing multilingual forms to families in Spanish.
“Maintaining data for over 10,000 students in 20 schools is time consuming. Our district wants to ensure that we have up-to-date emergency contact information and specifics on students with medical conditions before the first day of school. InfoSnap will help us improve our safety standards so that we can effectively and efficiently accommodate our families,” said Byrd.
Online registration via InfoSnap will be available to Kershaw County School District families in July.
