School Portal Software
When you are in charge of a school, you are responsible for both the broad decisions, such as hiring and setting standards for the curriculum, and the smaller day to day tasks that keep the school running smoothly. One of the most crucial aspects of running a successful school is keeping parents and students in the loop.
Increasingly, students and parents are interested in tracking the things that directly affect that student. Examples include grades, homework assignments, disciplinary actions, behavior management, and fee payments.
School portal software automates and streamlines this process. Teachers and administrators can easily record all events that affect each student, and students and parents can log into the system at any time to check those records. Teachers can send personalized messages to one or more students’ parents, administrators can send billing reminders, and parents can set up conferences with teachers or school officials, all with a few simple clicks.
What Is School Portal Software?
School portal software helps to improve communications between the school, its students, and their parents. Whether a teacher needs to let a single student’s parents know about a disciplinary problem, or the administration needs to give everyone in the school an update about a natural disaster, school portal software provides a central clearinghouse for easy dissemination of information.
Who Benefits from School Portal Software?
School portal software is vital for schools of all sizes and student demographics. When parents are involved, student education improves. When students are permitted to access their own records, they become more engaged in their own educational process. Teachers and administrators are frequently overwhelmed with their long list of daily duties, and must prioritize their time when deciding which parents need to be contacted by phone or asked to come in for a conference.
School portal software addresses these issues by providing a streamlined, largely automated place for everyone involved in a student’s education to share vital information about that educational process.
What Are the Advantages?
School portal software has quite a few advantages over other methods of communication. These include, but are not limited to:
- Improved student and parent engagement
- Ability to send automated messages to groups of students at the classroom, grade, or school-wide levels
- Simplified method of answering routine questions
