There’s a great new app in the app store for schools that need to manage host families for students. It’s especially great for schools that have exchange students.
The app lets you track a list of families that have space to accommodate a student over a particular timeframe. Any family can be entered into the system, which means teachers, staff, and other people connected to the school can volunteer as host families for students.
The app allows you to manage records for host families, their availability, and see the history of when students stayed with them.
Planned accommodations for students can also be viewed and edited from the app.
When a student needs to be accommodated, the app allows for searching the host families listing to find availability.
We hope this app helps with keeping track of accommodations for students and for maintaining a listing of host families. It’s a great way to manage both long-term and short-term stays.
Feel free to test it out, and let us know what you think!
