"Huge Time Saver!"

What do you like best?

We are able to capture updated information annually, which helps our district have more accurate/current information from families. Each family enters/updates their own data, which saves on typos. Registrars used to have to look through piles of papers to find minor changes, then rekey everything into PowerSchool manually.

What do you dislike?

There is setup required each year for both new and returning student forms. The process takes some time, but it's worth it! The support team works closely with your district/SU during implementation each year. I would recommend you have a team of people in your district/SU to work through the changes each year. Gather feedback from office staff, administrators, and families to help improve your form(s) each year.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended! Our data has far less errors now that we have taken paper registration out of the process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The student/family data is much more accurate and up to date compared to when we were using paper registration forms. We now receive updated data from families annually. In addition to demographic data, we also gather medical and transportation information.

"Saved our Staff!"

What do you like best?

The simple interface and ease of use. Although it looks simple, it is very powerful and easy to use. You cannot screw up anything.

What do you dislike?

Initial setup is alot of work. Deciding not to have too many questions and mapping the data correctly to your SIS takes time and recommend a team, not just a couple staff members. Get input from staff users and parents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have enough time to properly setup and implement. Do not recommend starting the school year with both New and Returning registration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it for new student and returning student registration. It has decreased errors significantly and increased the efficiency of our staff to get needed/updated information into our SIS system by count day.

What Admissions and Enrollment Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Registering students is so much easier now"

What do you like best?

Data entry is now done by the parents of our students instead of by us. They used to submit everything on paper, whereafter we entered the data into PowerSchool. Once parents have entered the data into PS Registration, we can send it to PowerSchool with a couple of mouse clicks. It has saved us so much time.

What do you dislike?

The setup is a lot of work. The field names in PS Registration and PS Sis are not always the same, which makes data mapping for API more cumbersome that it needs to be. Granted, Registration used to be Infosnap, which was not tied to PowerSchool, but now that it is part of PowerSchool, I hope they will go to work on streamlining it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It will change your life if you are used to paper forms. Well worth it if you can afford it, but start setting up plenty of time ahead.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for new student and returning student registration and information update. It has significantly cut down on paper clutter and data entry. All departments needing the information now have simultaneous access.

"Registration Signature"

What do you like best?

How easy it is for the parents to use. The information from one student can 'snap' to complete the next students form in the same family. Parents can enroll students from any time. Parents can enroll students from any place as along as they have internet access.

What do you dislike?

That the pay function is per student not per family.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a wonderful product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No more paper. No more sorting. The information is delivered from Registration back to PowerSchool. No more data entry.

"PS Registration Review"

What do you like best?

Implementation was quick and easy. It didn't take long after the first implementation call until I was creating my forms.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to duplicate my forms. When I was creating a new one, I had to start from scratch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider a demo of the product to see what it is capable of doing for your school.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As our PowerSchool admin, I heard many requests for online enrollment. I knew it was above my expertise so turning to something that PowerSchool sells was the only option I wanted to explore. Parents were able to have a successful student enrollment and secretaries were sold on it as soon as they approved the first registration form come through their queue.

"PowerSchool Registration "

What do you like best?

What I like best about PowerSchool Registration is that we users are able to design/create our own registration forms.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about PowerSchool Registration is the inability to export data for when submissions were received. However, we are not currently using the Signature version. We will be updating to the Signature version for 2017-2018.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go straight to the Signature version. You won't be sorry!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of too much paper use and also more timely data entry into PowerSchool. With PSR, all student data is updated in a far more timely manner.

"Powerschool makes scheduling and management a breeze"

What do you like best?

The sensible and useful tools to manage large groups of students. Also, I use it a great deal for exporting info on to excel, sheets, and tableau.

What do you dislike?

Limited connection to other apps such as mail. Would like to be able to hit a button to email all of a student's teachers, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Powerschool for registration, record keeping, schedule management, as well as having a parent portal and a student portal.

"No More paper! Cleaned up our data!"

What do you like best?

We are able to have our data ready for count day which comes 6 weeks into the school year. Previously our staff had to work overtime to try and get data entered for 2000 students accurately. Our staff prefer to have their time back with their family vs overtime in front of a computer. It has really helped us ensure all of our buildings are consistent.

What do you dislike?

It was difficult at first to get our secretarial staff to embrace online registration and stop using paper forms, but walking them through process slowly and working with them constantly allowed them to understand and see how it made their jobs better and easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give yourself plenty o time to implement and don't do it at the beginning of a school year.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to track enrollment and issues.

"PowerSchool Registration"

What do you like best?

This saves time for secretaries. They spend a lot of time entering new student registration information. Having the data entered by parents, reviewed by secretaries and then pushed right into PowerSchool will save them hours in the fall.

What do you dislike?

the cost is a little prohibitive, with all of the other expenses that are accrued through data bases this adds too much.

It will not save us much money above the cost. The biggest part of our registration process is address validation and proof of residency, we will continue to have this cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

time savings, that is probably the biggest benefit. Freeing our secretarial staff to do more important tasks.

"PowerSchool Registration"

What do you like best?

It is so easy for parents to log into their PowerParent account and get to the registration. No extra web sites, no extra usernames and passwords. Our parents really like that they can snap the contact information from one student to another.

What do you dislike?

The deliver of data back to PowerSchool is clunky. It seems way more difficult than it needs to be. It would be nice to have a mobile version/app for parents without computer internet access.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I do recommend PowerSchool Registration. There is a lot of power in the conditional logic used in PowerSchool Registration which gives us flexibility for different populations. Logging in through PowerParent is easy for parents.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parents can register from anyplace that has internet. They can register on their own time, not just during office hours.

PowerSchool is very user friendly and very easy to learn. It took me no time at all to learn the system once I was introduced to it a little over a year ago.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything to dislike. PowerSchool is user friendly and easy to learn.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definitely work it.

"Online Registration is amazing"

What do you like best?

How easy it is for the parents. Especially for the families with multiple students at different schools. It will take the students information and populate it to the next student.

What do you dislike?

The amount of time it takes for our information to get back into PowerSchool. We do have a unique set up and our support person changed from one year to the next which made it a little harder to get the second year set up. The first year we only had three schools the second year we had sixteen schools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an amazing resource for our families. It also has a huge impact on PS data quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This cuts down on paper, mailing cost, and even the secretary's time.

"Infosnap/powerschool"

What do you like best?

The "new" infosnap/powerschool registration page is a must for public schools. Takes the data entry right out of our hands and allows us to work with students in our main and counseling offices. The ability for parents to enter data and change data during the school year is a time saver and gives us better data.

What do you dislike?

The downloading feature is clunky but easy to manipulate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time saver as stated above.
