Moving this process online will allow school staff to focus on building relationships with our families and students. We want everyone to get acclimated to the new school year, rather than investing time to go through and fill out 30 sheets of paper.

PowerSchool customized a comprehensive student registration solution for Collierville Schools in Tennessee to centralize data collection. This streamlined process will increase efficiencies throughout the district and provide families with a convenient method to register students for school. Seamless integration between the PowerSchool student information system (SIS) and registration solution will result in up-to-date student data by the first day of school.
“We want to cut down on the tremendous amount of paperwork we distribute and collect, as well as the time that school staff and families spend on completing registration. We live in a tech-savvy community and want to remain in the forefront of education technology to provide our families with the most modern and efficient resources,” said Andy Field, Student Services Supervisor at Collierville Schools.
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 the SIS, resulting in up-to-date and accurate records on the first day of school.
“Moving this process online will allow school staff to focus on building relationships with our families and students. We want everyone to get acclimated to the new school year, rather than investing time to go through and fill out 30 sheets of paper,” notes Dr. Russell Dyer, Chief of Staff at Collierville Schools. Families will have the opportunity to view and sign off on school-related policies. Collierville Schools will also utilize the language localization feature to meet the need of this diverse population by providing multilingual forms to families in English and Spanish. The online student registration solution will launch in spring 2016.
