Featured District: Cedar Springs Public Schools (MI)

The Cedar Springs Public Schools (MI) needed a leaner, greener student registration and re-enrollment process. But district employees knew they couldn’t get there on their own.

They needed a trusted partner to guide them on their way to a cost-effective, paperless solution that would ease the workload on both parents and staff.

And they found just that in SRC Solutions, the makers of Registration Gateway – the only true paperless student registration, re-enrollment and information tracking system of its kind.

“We chose SRC because it seemed to be a step ahead of the competition, with greater automation and less manual intervention to move student data between systems,” Cedar Springs Public Schools CIO Krista Lilley said.

Cedar Springs had done its homework before rolling out Registration Gateway last fall – they knew they were getting a quality online registration and re-enrollment system. What they didn’t know was how much value they’d get from the solution.

The SRC product ships with Xerox’s DocuShare content management system, which automatically stores a PDF copy of every form generated by Registration Gateway. When used in conjunction with Registration Gateway’s automatic student information system integration, DocuShare was a home run for Cedar Springs.

“The DocuShare system was an added bonus beyond what we were initially looking for,” Lilley said. “We ultimately intend to expand our DocuShare use to replace our physical student record files.”

Registration Gateway is designed to help districts like Cedar Springs get to exactly that point. And it’s working in Michigan.

Lilley said most of the district’s parents are enjoying the new paperless system, which has sped up the registration and re-enrollment process. And the reaction from school staff has been “overwhelmingly positive.”

Our staff loves the immediate notification for new students, as well as having the automatic calling feature reminding parents of needed documents. Our secretaries like having the student data automatically filled into our SIS automatically and immediately.

All in all, Cedar Springs is loving the Registration Gateway experience.

“The system has been working reliably,” Lilley said. “The implementation staff at SRC has been great to work with; they’ve been open to making sure the paperless registration system is meeting our needs.

“I’m encouraged by the rapid development of the product and the listening ear of the company for future enhancements.”
