Overall Satisfaction with PowerSchool Registration

It is able to interface with our SIS (student information system) and allow parents to register their children online without filling out redundant paperwork or inappropriate paperwork that is just in the 'packet' for all. The questions that are asked are grade and school appropriate. Our school registration process is much more simple.
  • It is able to write back to the student information system with a matching process that ensures the accuracy of student data.
  • It tracks the data and the changes, who made the changes, and when the data was imported.
  • It organizes the process. It creates a system that relies on checks and balances, and causes you to re-evaluate your process.
  • It can be inflexible.
  • They are slow on turn-around at times, but I think it has to do with the fact that most people are doing registration at the same time of year.
  • Absolutely positive, we have invested very little in comparison to what we get back. Our data is complete from the time a student enrolls, and that used to never happen.
  • In addition, additional data can be collected by departments for many uses which can always be made importable into other systems.
  • Every element is trackable.
PowerSchool registration was Infosnap when we bought it, and at the time it made the rest look like amateurs, but one of the main reasons for us was that it worked directly with PowerSchool. It has since been rolled into PowerSchool. Had it not been, and it was still independent, we would still highly recommend.
PowerSchool registration is good for yearly registration and year-round updates. I would say it is not as good as if you just have a short survey to ask-- there may be other alternatives in the district that are not as cumbersome to use to accommodate something like that. If you want to go to online registration or change from another company, you will not find one that is easier to use. We have well over 35,000 parents who use it and are very successful.
