Permission Click Launches Free Online Permission Slip and Payment Tool
Permission Click has launched a free online platform that allows teachers to create digital permission slips to send to parents. Once received, permission slips can be approved and, if needed, paid in seconds.
"The platform not only allows teachers to create permission slips for events like field trips — it also lets them reach parents directly for fundraising events, registration forms, yearbook sales and other important school events," according to a news release. "Parents click a link in their email on any device to approve attendance, complete forms and conveniently pay any associated fees online. Parents can approve events on almost any device, anywhere."
The platform allows teachers to upload existing forms or create their own with a drag-and-drop interface. Districts can also create common forms to be shared among schools. A searchable archive of events allows users to download reports in CSV files.
Though the platform is free, it can also be integrated with student information systems via Clever with purchase of the premium edition. The premium version also includes visibility into and the ability to manage multiple schools.
