ParentPaperwork is an online platform that automates paper forms, data capture and reporting in schools.
Data capture and reporting via paper-based processes is a significant problem for schools. They exchange dozens of forms per student each year with parents, and thousands more again in their internal administration and enrolment procedures, yet paper is unreliable, inefficient and a high cost to their budget, staff time, liability management and the environment.
The Parent Forms module has been in active use by schools for a number of months. Schools can build any number of user-defined form templates, distribute forms to parents, and capture, manage and report the submitted responses
Schools use the Parent Forms module for a multitude of data capture activities including Permission Forms; Field Trips; School camps; Questionnaires; Sports activities; Music classes and drama auditions; In-school and extra-curricula activities; Parent feedback & evaluations; Photo releases; Parent information sessions; ICT policy acceptance; Medical forms; Photo and student image approvals; Head lice inspections; Walking to the local surrounding areas approvals.
Parents respond extremely positively to the ParentPaperwork platform. Analysis of form submission data shows 30% of parents submit their online forms within four hours of receiving notification; rising to 55% within 24 hours. This is performance unachievable with a paper-based process.
