Newington Public Schools Selects PowerSchool Registration to Improve Efficiency and Streamline District Processes
Online student registration solution to improve parent satisfaction and accuracy of student data
Folsom, CA – October 13, 2016 – PowerSchool’s online student enrollment and registration solution was selected to replace Connecticut’s Newington Public Schools’ paper-based process for collecting and managing student data. The intuitive online solution will facilitate better communication interdepartmentally and provide families with an easy and efficient solution to register students for school.
“We wanted a more fluid operation for managing student information,” said Richard Klett, Director of Security and Residency at Newington Public Schools. “PowerSchool Registration will eliminate the step of families having to manually fill out forms prior to coming to the residency office. We’re streamlining our processes to better serve our school community.”
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 PowerSchool student information system, resulting in up-to-date records on the first day of school.
“Our current process requires parents to fill out twelve to fifteen sheets of paper per student,” stated Klett. “We are looking forward to going green with PowerSchool Registration, which will allow us to attain vital and accurate information before the first day of school.”
Newington Public Schools uses PowerSchool for its student information system. Both solutions will complement each other, providing the district with a comprehensive platform to manage scheduling, attendance, reporting, data management, faculty management, emergency/medical and health management, student enrollment and registration, and more.
