What does school management software offer your school? It keeps track of student information securely in an easy to read and attractive format. And because its no longer necessary for office personnel to leave their desks, looking for records, it’s time-saving too. Keeping in touch with both parents and students is made easier, as contact information is stored with each student’s file. School management software tracks teacher contact information too, and makes it easy for administration, parents and students to keep in touch with teaching staff with secure web-based email. It can keep track of attendance, grades, and create beautiful student ID’s, report cards and other school related documents with ease, too.
How does school management software benefit your teaching staff? Teachers can grade easily, record lesson plans, check class schedules and answer emails all from the comfort of their home, or on any computer with internet access while away from school. Many typical teaching tasks are automated, to free teachers to interact with students. Some web-based programs have forums, for real time communication between teachers and students, and are suitable for submitting assignments.
Parents benefit too. Parents can check class schedules, grades, progress reports, and work assignments online from their work or home. Automated calling can keep parents informed with important bulletins and emergency information, such as weather-related school closings. Prospective parents of students can easily inquire about your school online, too. Both parents and students can feel more involved, and more strongly connected to their school as an online community.
