Spokane R-VII School District in Missouri implemented an online registration solution to securely collect and manage student data. The district partnered with InfoSnap to modernize a paper-intensive process, increasing efficiency and family satisfaction. This customized solution streamlines new and annual student registration through seamless integration between InfoSnap and Spokane’s student information system, InformationNOW (iNOW).
“The breaking point came when I actually watched my daughter fill out a 15-20 page packet for 7 children. When families are tasked with filling out that many forms, the probability of receiving bad data increases,” said Pamila Rowe, Principal at Spokane Middle School.
The electronic format allows families who have more than one child in the district to ‘snap’ data from one student to another. SmartForm™ technology, an intuitive tool built into the solution, collects relevant data based on previously entered information or choices (grade, activities, medical history, etc.). The data submitted by families is reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet the district’s policies and then delivered into iNOW, resulting in up-to-date and accurate records on the first day of school.
“Strong integration with iNOW was a prerequisite in our search for an online registration provider. We did our research and quickly found that InfoSnap is the frontrunner for developing an intuitive solution that matches well with our student information system. The level of customization that InfoSnap provides far exceeds our expectations. We were able to incorporate additional questions on the online form such as the option to volunteer. We could then follow up to determine at which building the parent would like to volunteer. We are amazed at the number of parents who offered to volunteer this school year,” said Rowe.
InfoSnap’s reporting functionality enables staff to generate reports for specific departments. The transportation director is alerted when a student needs to be added to a bus route. The school nurse is promptly notified when a student registers with a medical condition or allergy.
“Our InfoSnap implementation specialist was wonderful to work with. I could not brag enough to my superintendent about the unparalleled customer service we received,” notes Rowe. Online student registration launched on August 03, 2015, for the school community. Families are encouraged to visit the school’s website to complete registration for the 2015/16 school year.
