Mobile County Public Schools Selects GuideK12™, Geovisual Analytic Software

GuideK12 reaches one-million student milestone with addition of largest district in Alabama

Mobile County Public Schools, the largest school district in Alabama, serves over 58,000 students in 90 schools and magnet programs. A district of this size has a lot of moving parts and complexity for administrators to analyze and understand.
Mobile County administrators selected GuideK12™ because it will allow them to visualize their district on a map while combining student and county data for real time scenario planning and analysis by district leaders.

Complexity in the decision making process continues to increase for all districts, so more and more are looking for solutions like GuideK12 to provide a quicker, more accurate way to make the right decisions for their students and communities alike. GuideK12’s geovisual analytics will allow Mobile County Public Schools to see their data with a new lens for boundary analysis, program placement, resource placement, emergency planning, and proactive decision-making. The ability to visualize and interact with disparate data sets on a map allows administrators to get instant results and feedback in order to be more proactive, efficient and transparent.

Mobile County administrators made the decision to move forward with the implementation of GuideK12’s platform through the company’s partnership with SRC Solutions, the district’s Registration Gateway solution. Being familiar with the full suite of GuideK12 products, SRC Solutions brought GuideK12 to Mobile County Public School administrators as a tool that would help them meet their decision-making needs moving forward.

We appreciate when our trusted solution providers bring a valuable new tool that they have come across. The industry, as well as the needs of our students are constantly changing making the need for solutions like GuideK12 even more valuable. We are excited about how GuideK12 will empower our district leaders with better analytic tools and look forward to seeing results once we dig deep into the platform.

David K. Akridge, Executive Manager of Information Technology, Mobile County Public Schools

“We are proud to welcome Mobile County Public Schools to the GuideK12 family. They are a leader in the state of Alabama and I applaud their innovative approach to finding technology tools that enable deeper insights, better dialogue between stakeholders and more data driven decision-making,” said GuideK12 CEO Chuck Amos. “With the addition of Mobile County Public Schools to the districts we serve, our platform now supports more than 1 million students nationwide. This is an important milestone for us. Having partners like MCPS and SRC are incredibly valuable relationships for us and we look forward to working with them both moving forward.”

Mobile County Public Schools eliminates wasted time and money by implementing Registration Gateway from SRC Solutions, Inc.

Mobile County Public Schools has recently completed its online enrollment period using Registration Gateway. The Registration Gateway solution has enabled Mobile County Public Schools to eliminate the paper registration packet typically used for school registration. This is a savings of approximately 300,000 pieces of paper and printing costs.

“There is no doubt Mobile County Public Schools saved money not having to print registration packets.” said Linda Biggs Student Attendance Administrator. Registrars no longer have to manually enter registration information into INOW, Mobile County Public Schools Student Information System.  “Mobile County Public Schools has achieved 100% parent adoption of the Registration Gateway Online Enrollment Solution.” said Biggs.

The Registration Gateway Online Enrollment Solution flawlessly handled over 46,000 registrations on a single day.

Mobile County Public Schools also provided workstations at the Central Office as an option for parents to complete the registration process. “Once the parents understood the concept, they loved it” said Biggs.

When asked about the deployment of Registration Gateway from SRC Solutions, Inc. Mr. Mixon had this to say. “Everything we asked SRC to do, they were there to help us. I am very pleased with SRC.”

Mobile County Public Schools, SRC Solutions and our Student Information Systems provider STI worked hand in hand to develop an integrated solution through a set of API’s which provides seamless data flow into INOW.

Mobile School District Deploys Registration Gateway

FROM WALA-TV

Mobile Co. Public School’s Online Registration: fox10tv.com

Registration Gateway (formerly EZ Registration-Online Registration) will now be a simpler way for parents and guardians to sign up.

This pilot program will start with twelve schools:

  • HIGH SCHOOLS: Citronelle, Blount, BC Rain, Theodore, LeFlore, Murphy, Vigor, Williamson
  • MIDDLE SCHOOLS: Lott and Alba
  • ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS: Chickasaw and Dauphin Island
  • Now with the Registration Gateway website, students can be enrolled by entering the data online. As this is a new program, students will still be required to visit his/her school and bring in proper documentation. However the benefits of improving student registration will be:
    • Reducing long lines at registration
    • Reducing the use of paper
    • Saving the school time and money which can be spent on educational needs
    • Producing more accurate student data
