Forest Hills School District in Cincinnati, Ohio, will launch an online student registration solution to increase efficiency. The 7,500 student district partnered with InfoSnap to design and develop an innovative solution to improve business processes for administrative staff and increase family satisfaction. Seamless integration between InfoSnap and Forest Hills’ student information system (SIS), ProgressBook Suite (PBS), will result in accurate and up-to-date student data by the first day of school.
“Our district wanted to streamline the methods we had in place for student registration. Everything was done on paper and it was very time-consuming for both our families and administrative staff to efficiently complete this process,” states Debbie Conover, Registrar at Forest Hills.
This online solution will remove new and annual paper registration packets. 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.). The data submitted by families is reviewed and formatted to meet the district’s policies and then delivered into ProgressBook Suite, resulting in up-to-date, accurate records on the first day of school.
“InfoSnap’s partnership with Software Answers, Inc., developer of PBS, was a significant factor in our decision to go online. The integration between the two systems is important to us. We don’t want to have to go through numerous steps for the data to flow properly because it would defeat the purpose of moving this process online. We’re excited about the powerful interface to automate real-time data exchange between PBS and InfoSnap,” said John Eckert, Coordinator of Climate and Culture at Forest Hills.
Eckert adds, “The flexibility we believe we will receive from InfoSnap will not only positively impact registration, but multiple departments as well, such as athletics, health, etc. We’re excited about this venture and looking forward to providing a solution that will more effectively meet the need of our school community.”
