Transform education in your city and streamline school choice with a unified application and enrollment process across district and charter schools. SchoolMint understands city school systems and can customize a common enrollment solution. Our fully integrated platform improves efficiency and transparency for your entire process and promotes equitable access to quality education for all students and families in your city.
School Chooser for Managing School Choice
Unified enrollment opens up more options for students beyond their neighborhood school — and more options require more information that families can find easily. Make sure school choice in your city is a fair and open process by giving all families an easy way to research schools so they can determine which ones are most suitable for their children. With School Chooser, a user-friendly mobile search tool, parents can search from home or on the go to find everything they need to make informed choices. School searches can be filtered not just by grade and neighborhood, but also by program offering, after-school activities, performance, and more, making it easy for families to quickly compare schools and find the one that’s right for their student.
Common Applications and Assignments
Once families have researched schools through the School Chooser, you can offer one streamlined application — no matter how many schools they apply to — that also allows you to manage all city schools on one timeline if you choose. Parents can even use their mobile device to complete the Common Application, check status, manage offers students have received from schools, and view school assignments. Applications can even be translated into other languages. Administrators can track and manage every aspect of applications, waitlists, lotteries and school assignments, and family communications from a unified online platform. Dashboards and robust reports are accessible 24/7, and audit logs help ensure a fair and equitable process is followed for all students.
After school matching is completed, each school can customize the registration process to meet their requirements. Registration forms are assembled through the system and completed by parents on their own computers or mobile devices, then families can always check their student’s status online without calling the school. Administrators can view registration data and reports, create, send, and track all communications, and even process registration fees from one system.
