PowerSchool Registration overview

What is PowerSchool Registration?

PowerSchool Registration is an online solution that helps K-12 independent schools, choice schools, charters, public schools, and districts of all sizes simplify student registration through web forms. The tool streamlines resource management processes and lets school administration teams adjust staffing requirements, bus routes, class allocations, and immunization follow-up. PowerSchool’s Student Information System (SIS) module lets schools collect and save standardized student data.

PowerSchool Registration allows family members of students to upload documents and complete the registration process through an online interface. The solution offers data import and export functionality that allows users to send student data to other departments such as athletics, transport, or arts. The software manages data compliance through built-in workflows which ensure that the data is correct and supported by valid documents.

PowerSchool Registration software and its online forms can be customized to meet the branding requirements of schools. The software tags all student forms and helps users segment them into different categories such as documents pending verification, incomplete documentation, student likes soccer, and others. Users can access the software and view all stored data from their laptops, tablets, or mobile phones.

PowerSchool Registration also offers additional features such as application trackers, recruitment marketing, data verification, and automated data delivery. It identifies duplicate applications and notifies the concerned stakeholder about the action required. The tool enables administrators to assign role-based permissions to users for data access. PowerSchool Registration also integrates with Dropbox and Google Apps for Education.

Registrations are done by the parents so there is not having to decipher penmanship. As long as Parents can type their students name correctly, all is well.

Pros
It gives parents a way to enroll their students online. So there is very little paper used in the registration process.

Cons
I can't change any forms on my own. I have to go onto the admin web page and ask them to make a change.

Pros
PowerSchool Registration collects all the data we need, from initial application to recurring profile updates.

Cons
Formerly called Infosnap, this software integrates with PowerSchool, which we use as our SIS. As such, the integration was what could be expected Now that PowerSchool has acquired it, we are hoping for a much more seamless integration between the two. Much of what we need to do can only be done through on of their account managers. Response time has sometimes been over two weeks!!!

Makes Student Lottery and Registration Easy for Our Charter School

Used occasionally for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

The product is great, customer service is an area of improvement.

Pros
PowerSchool Registration has been key in transitioning our charter school's lottery and registration process to a digital/online format. In the past, we did this all by paper and it was extremely tedious. By partnering with PowerSchool, we have saved hours of time processing paper, increased our data verification, and increased parent efficiency in supporting registration paperwork and documents.

Cons
The initial set-up and implementation costs were extremely pricey for the level of customer service and design that we received. PowerSchool Registration has gone through three different client communication protocols in the last three years and we have experienced extremely poor customer service/response times.

Terrible Customer Service and Does not Deliver on Functionality

Review Source: Capterra

Very poor. They were months delayed on implementation, response is non-existent from sales/management team, and the user experience/customer support is nowhere near meeting the value of what you pay for the platform.

Pros
It has been better than nothing, and the integration with PowerSchool's SIS is useful.

Cons
The support team seems to know nothing about their own product--they seem to move you to one person who knows what they are doing if you complain enough, which is exhausting. Then, they move you back to a low quality team. We have changed "support teams" multiple times over just one year. There is very little consistency or professional follow-through. There is almost nothing in regards to instructions or manuals that can help guide you to troubleshoot your own tasks--you have to rely on a support team from India that also doesn't know what to do. The features of the platform itself are clunky and not intuitive. The user experience is marginal at best for organizing and managing applications.

PowerSchool Registration is a huge time and money saver. It was relatively smooth to implement and our parents loved the switch from paper documents!

Pros
Simple, user friendly design. It integrates with PowerSchool seemlessly and is able to be customized. PowerSchool has improved support for this product. Our parents and office staff love this product.

Cons
Field quantity limitations. Depending on the size and cost of your subscription, the number of fields you can use in a form is limited to 100. The product is not cheap.
