We assessed the costs associated with our previous paper-based registration process. That included hours for labor, paper, ink, and toner. By implementing a solution from InfoSnap, Vernon Township School District will save $20,000 a year.

Vernon Township School District in New Jersey will implement a consistent and convenient process for student registration by moving their paper-based system online. InfoSnap’s award winning integration with PowerSchool, Vernon Township’s student information system, will provide this district with a customized solution that will streamline new and annual student registration through seamless, real-time, on-demand two-way data transfer.
“It wasn’t convenient for families to travel to one of our six schools to pick up registration packets, go home to spend hours filling it out, and then bring the paperwork back to the school. We wanted to implement a painless process for our families,” said Matt Shea, Chief Technology Officer at Vernon Township.
The online solution from InfoSnap will provide families with an effective method for enrolling and registering their child/children at their own convenience. Families who have more than one child in 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.).
“We assessed the costs associated with our previous paper-based registration process. That included hours for labor, paper, ink, and toner. By implementing a solution from InfoSnap, Vernon Township School District will save $20,000 a year,” said Shea.
InfoSnap will provide this district with up-to-date, accurate data on the first day of school. “The time our administrative staff spent not only inputting student data into PowerSchool, but also deciphering parents’ handwriting, didn't allow our staff to utilize their time efficiently,” notes Shea.
The data submitted by families is reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet Vernon Township’s policies and then delivered into PowerSchool. “The polishing of data is a great feature as it will ensure consistency of how it’s entered into our SIS,” said Shea.
As the only online registration provider directly embedded within the PowerSchool Parent Portal navigation, InfoSnap will exceed the need of this district by providing an easier process for families to register students.
“Implementing a customized solution from InfoSnap will save our families and school staff time and allow us to use the cost savings for additional resources to benefit our 3,500 students,” said Shea.
