Bixby Public Schools will move its student registration process online with a customized and efficient solution from InfoSnap. This solution will streamline data collection for new and annual student registration, improving business processes for administrative staff. InfoSnap’s award winning PowerSchool integration will effectuate real-time, on-demand data transfer between the two systems.
“Our school district is rapidly growing. We want to implement an impressive solution that provides immediate updates to student data. Having access to the most up-to-date information will allow us to efficiently serve our entire school community,” notes Bryan Frazier, Associate Superintendent at Bixby.
The electronic format will allow families who have more than one child in the district to ‘snap’ data from one student to another. The use of SmartForm™ technology, an intuitive tool built into the solution, will collect relevant data based on previously entered information or choices (grade, activities, medical history, etc.). The data submitted by families is reviewed and formatted to meet the district’s policies and then delivered into PowerSchool, resulting in up-to-date, accurate records on the first day of school.
“It was imperative to select a provider with strong integration capabilities to PowerSchool. InfoSnap has a reputable partnership with Pearson. We looked at other solutions and compared them to what we would ultimately receive from InfoSnap. The ability and willingness on InfoSnap’s part to develop a flexible solution for our district was far superior,” said Frazier.
The scrubbing and polishing components will ensure that entries are consistent when entered into the district’s student information system. Oklahoma state reporting has strict requirements for the way that data is formatted. InfoSnap will simplify this process for school administrators. In addition, InfoSnap’s Language Localization will meet the need of this diverse population by providing multilingual forms to families in English and Spanish.
“We are excited to launch a solution that will allow school staff to view vital information before the school year begins. The special services department will be alerted if a student registers with specific needs. School nurses will be notified if a student registers with a medical condition. It’s remarkable to have that level of efficiency,” said Frazier.
