PowerSchool Group’s InfoSnap Online Student Registration will streamline data collection for California’s Jefferson Union High School District. The 4,800-student district is going green to improve efficiency and decrease costs associated with the collection and management of student information. Seamless integration between the InfoSnap solution and the district’s student information system (SIS), Synergy, will result in accurate data by the first day of school.
Annual student registration was a time-consuming and paper-intensive process. “It was imperative to implement a more efficient solution, eliminating the burden placed on our families and staff each year, as well as the costs associated with paper-based student registration. We’re going green and saving over $30,000 a year in summer mailings,” said Director of Technology and Information Services, Simon Bettis of Jefferson Union High 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 district policies and then delivered into Synergy, resulting in up-to-date records on the first day of school.
“We’re excited to launch a paperless process for our school community. Families will be able to complete registration from the comfort of their own home and kiosks will be available at the district for those who don’t have internet access. It’s a much more efficient process for our school staff as they will no longer have to manually enter data from our partner schools into our student information system,” notes Bettis.
Jefferson Union High School District did its due diligence by reviewing several online registration providers. “The customization, support, and proven track record are what separated the InfoSnap solution from its competitors. Many districts in the area, as well as throughout the entire state, successfully use the InfoSnap solution. It offers us something we’ve never had before – the ability to see who has and hasn’t started the registration process. We’ll know our numbers before the start of each school year so that we can allocate our resources appropriately,” said Bettis.
