Middletown Township School District Launches PowerSchool Registration to Boost Staff Efficiency and Parent Engagement During Enrollment Process
PowerSchool Registration to streamline processes and improve accuracy of student data for New Jersey school district
July 19, 2017 – Folsom, CA – Middletown Township School District (NJ) is transitioning from a paper-based method to PowerSchool Registration, an online enrollment solution, for the families and school staff of the 10,000 students it serves. The online solution will augment the district’s PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS), streamlining school operations to improve efficiency from enrollment to graduation.
“It became imperative to make the registration process more efficient for families when enrolling students in school each year,” stated Susan Calabro, Student information Systems Manager at Middletown Township School District. “With PowerSchool Registration, we are able to significantly reduce data entry errors and experience substantial cost savings by eliminating the paper-based process we previously had in place.”
Using PowerSchool Registration, families who have more than one child in the district can ‘snap’ data from one student to another. SmartForm™ technology, an intuitive tool built into the solution, collects relevant data based on previously entered information and elections (grade, activities, medical history, etc.). The data submitted by families is reviewed, polished, and formatted to meet district policies and then delivered into the PowerSchool SIS, giving school administrators and educators accurate and up-to-date records for students on the first day of school.
“To be able to see our projected enrollment numbers prior to the start of the school year is invaluable,” stated Calabro. “Having the appropriate information in a timely manner allows us to allocate our resources accordingly. We can look at the projected enrollment numbers and ensure we are meeting the needs of all our students.”
