Cities and Common Enrollment
Transform education in your city and streamline school choice with a unified application and enrollment process across district and charter schools. SchoolMint’s enrollment software improves efficiency and transparency and promotes equitable access to quality education for all students and families in your city.
Managing School Choice with School Chooser
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, 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, school systems can offer one streamlined application that also allows cities to align on one application timeline. 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 enrollment process.
Streamlined Student Registration
After school matching is completed, each school can customize the student registration process to meet their requirements. Student 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.
