The Best Online Report Card System Every School Needs  

A report card is one of the most important documents that students will receive every year. Yet every report card season, though exciting, can be a very time-consuming and difficult period, especially for teachers. Manually entering all the results from different assignments, quizzes, and tests for every single student doesn’t just take time due to having to remember information or trying to recall forgotten scores, or having to go through the endless amount of paper, but is also prone to errors being made even though a calculator is being used. This then leads to rushing to get report cards done by the due date, and most likely a lot of overtime done.   

No wonder report card season is so stressful and teachers are under a lot of pressure! Whilst the end of report card season is rewarding, especially for the students, school administrators need to find ways to help the teachers during this taxing time.  

Not to worry, as QuickSchools is here to help! We have 9 reasons why signing up with QuickSchools will provide you with the best report card system you have ever had!

5 Reasons Why You Need A Student Information System BEFORE You Open Your New School

Are you planning to start your own school? Yes? Congratulations! Sharing your vision of education with the world is perhaps one of the most satisfying career choices you’ll ever make. It’s also a daunting undertaking. There are so many things to think about – funding, staffing, developing a curriculum, getting accreditations, etc.

One aspect that you shouldn’t overlook is the need to acquire a Student Information System (SIS) BEFORE you open the (virtual) doors to your new school. An SIS will help you automate tasks, simplify work processes, and improve communications. Invest in the time to choose an SIS now, and you’ll reap the benefits of a reduced workload – not just during this critical, initial stage, but also for the long term.

Here we list out the top 5 reasons why acquiring an SIS BEFORE you open your new school is a must:

Reason #1: Get the ball rolling on your recruitment and admission process. Most SIS tools include built-in inquiry and application forms that you can embed on your website. Others will also help you with processing payments online (e.g. application fees, deposits, and tuition fees).

Reason #2: Prepare your school for its first academic year. A good SIS will have features that will help you set up subjects, schedules, and lesson plans. A great SIS will offer the flexibility of supporting your pedagogical approach (e.g. standards-based grading, Montessori curriculum).

Reason #3: Develop and solidify your school branding. Many SIS tools allow you to customize your report cards, transcripts, and student ID cards. Imprint your school logo on all these items.

Reason #4: Identify missing elements in the SIS. No SIS is perfect. Identify one that is most compatible for your school, and see if there are ways to supplement the missing elements – typically via integrations or additional Apps.

Reason #5: Get acquainted with the various parts of the SIS, so that when your doors do open, you and your staff are ready to meet the challenges ahead.

If you’re now thinking of acquiring an SIS for your new school, we hope that you’ll give QuickSchools a try. Our pricing is amenable to most budgets – starting at just $9.99 per month. We also have lots of experience helping schools grow.
