Parents can access the web-based registrations from one of three methods:
- Parents can create their own account
- Staff can create an account on behalf of the parent
- Parents can submit an application anonymously, no account needed. This is the least recommended approach.
New families can fill out a registration from scratch, but for returning families, there is a much faster option. Staff can create a registration for the new school year that copies all the demographic information from their student record, so parents need not re-enter everything from scratch. They can simply review the information and make changes accordingly.
The registration module (and all of SchoolCloud) is mobile friendly; your mobile device is a perfect tool to upload ID documents for registration.
Custom consent forms can be added by staff for the parent or parents to sign.
Once the registration is completed, the parent can be emailed a PDF copy of the signed registration and/or parent can login to download the registration at any time.
All registration data ties into SchoolCloud’s business intelligence module.
Registrations are but one small piece of SchoolCloud’s parent portal. Other features accessible by the parent include:
- Report Cards (also available on Student portal)
- Real-time reporting of student grades (outcome based and percentage based) (also available on Student portal)
- Uploading and downloading of electronic documents
- Individual Program Plan review
- Course selection (also available on Student portal)
Some of the above items are available to the student login as well.
