Newton-Conover City School District in North Carolina partnered with InfoSnap to launch a customized online student registration solution. InfoSnap’s award winning integration with PowerSchool, Newton-Conover’s student information system, generates real-time, on-demand data transfer between the two systems. Implementing the innovative solution has increased staff productivity, family happiness, and accuracy of data.
“Student registration wasn’t done consistently from school to school. Once we evaluated each school’s process and saw how many times our families were filling out the same information, it became imperative to modernize the method in which we collect and manage student data,” notes Cindy Geddes, Director of Accountability and Technology at Newton-Conover City School District.
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 PowerSchool, resulting in up-to-date records on the first day of school.
Prior to implementing InfoSnap, it took administrative staff months to enter student data into PowerSchool. “With InfoSnap, we are able to access student information in a much quicker and efficient manner,” said Geddes. Newton-Conover City School District is also utilizing InfoSnap’s Language Localization to meet the need of this diverse population by providing multilingual forms to families in English and Spanish.
“We have streamlined what used to be a very paper-intensive process. Training our staff on utilizing InfoSnap was fantastic and our solution specialist has been very responsive. We did a presentation for families at one of the schools and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Everyone appreciates the simplicity of enrolling and registering students for school,” notes Geddes. Online student registration launched on August 12, 2015, for the Newton-Conover City School District. Families are encouraged to visit the district’s website and click the registration tab to complete new and returning student information for the 2015/16 school year.
