Barrington School District Adopts Online Student Registration

New Hampshire's Barrington School District SAU 74 has adopted a customized online student registration system in an effort to ensure student data is up to date on the first day of school and to replace a paper-based process.

"Our parents were tasked with filling out a variety of forms every school year," said Nancy Vincent, director of technology for the district, in a prepared statement. "We're streamlining this process by eliminating paper and modernizing our approach to the student registration process."

The district chose a solution from PowerSchool, which also provides Barrington SD's student information system (SIS). The new tool allows families with more than one student to snap information from one child's entry to another and features SmartForm technology, which collects data based on previously entered information and choices.

"We're eliminating an extensive amount of hours that administrators previously spent inputting data into our SIS," added Vincent. "The solution will increase efficiency at the district and provide a user-friendly experience for our families."
