SCHOOL DISTRICTS

Moving from paper-based enrollment systems to online solutions not only cuts costs, saves staff hours, and gives school districts better visibility into data. It also eases the burden on today’s smartphone-dependent families by offering them mobile access.

Solutions Built for School Districts

Districts are well aware of the inefficiencies associated with paper-based processes and the challenges of getting registration information to and from busy working parents. With SchoolMint’s custom online solution, your district can administer all forms and information requests online while making the process much easier for families.
SchoolMint customizes mobile apps for your district so families can complete application and registration forms, check status, and access information through their smartphones — a welcome relief for those families who are among the 25% of Americans who must rely on their phones for Internet access.

Streamlined Registration and Re-Enrollment

Manage every aspect of new student registration and re-enrollment of returning students in one online system. Assemble every part of registration, forms, and fee payments into one automated, transparent process, and always have up-to-the-minute visibility into the registration status of students. Stay in touch with families throughout registration using text, email, or voice messaging, and easily track missing information as well as every parent interaction. View analytics and explore any data you need with dashboards and reports.

Simplified School Choice

For districts that offer school choice, automating applications, lotteries, and school matching can mean significant improvements in efficiency, data and analytics, and even fairness and transparency. SchoolMint offers a fully integrated, customized solution that allows you to manage every step of the process online:

  • A mobile-friendly tool for parents to research local schools.
  • One online application for parents to apply to multiple schools — no paper forms or manual data entry for staff.
  • Fair and transparent lotteries are run securely online.
  • All registration forms and required student documents are completed, uploaded, and managed online.

Powerful Digital Forms and Documents

Real-time synchronization across the SchoolMint system means you’ll have cleaner, more up-to-date, and more consistent information that you can access securely at any time.
