To have everything in one centralized location through InfoSnap is an efficiency that our families and school staff will appreciate.

PowerSchool Group’s InfoSnap online student registration will replace an arduous paper-based process at Marion Community Unit School District #2. Through seamless integration between InfoSnap and the district’s student information system, InformationNOW (iNOW), student registration will be streamlined, increasing staff efficiency and family satisfaction.
“We were inundated with paper, as our previous process for registration required administrative staff to distribute and collect an average of 20 sheets of paper per student. As technology continues to advance, it’s important that our district sustains our commitment to modernize processes that add value to our school community,” notes Jerry Stanley, District Technology Coordinator at Marion Community Unit School District #2.
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 district policies and then delivered into iNOW, resulting in up-to-date records on the first day of school.
“It was important to select a solution that has robust integration capabilities with iNOW. InfoSnap meets that requirement, in addition to providing a friendly user interface, pre-population of data, and efficient payment collection from families,” said Stanley.
The district will use the payment management service to collect school-related fees from families for registration, gym clothes, driver’s education, and more. “To have everything in one centralized location through InfoSnap is an efficiency that our families and school staff will appreciate,” notes Stanley. Online registration will be available March 1, 2016.
