Featured District: Nixa Public Schools (MO)

SRC Solutions is thrilled to have Nixa (Mo.) Public Schools as a partner. But perhaps no one is happier with the relationship than Nixa parents.

Until the 2011-12 school year, parents of children in the district were tasked with filling out several registration and re-enrollment forms each summer. And parents with more than one child in Nixa schools were forced to enter the same information, by hand, multiple times.

It was, quite simply, a pain. But no longer.

Now that Nixa Public Schools uses SRC’s Registration Gateway solution, the days of the district’s parents dealing with endless paperwork are over. For the first time this summer, they simply entered student and contact information into Registration Gateway’s intuitive wizard interface, saving time and headaches.

The best part going forward? No repeat work for multiple children.

Registration Gateway has increased Nixa’s funding opportunities, and – most importantly – offered more students access to nutritious lunches.

The district has benefited, too. Under the old, paper-based system, Nixa registrars needed to manually key data into the student information system. With Registration Gateway, integration with PowerSchool is automatic.

As a result, accuracy and consistency of parent and student data has increased.

“Now, information just transfers into our student information system,” Nixa PowerSchool/core data coordinator Caralyn Millsap said. “The accuracy is there now, and it saves time for the registrars. There are multiple benefits from it.”

Likewise, participation in Nixa’s free and reduced-price lunch program has increased significantly since the district implemented SRC’s FRPL Gateway solution. FRPL applications used to be sent home as part of a stack of paper documents – a situation that made them all too easy to miss or ignore. Now, all Nixa parents see an electronic copy of the FRPL application as part of the registration and re-enrollment process.

The new, online process has increased Nixa’s funding opportunities, and – most importantly – offered more students access to nutritious lunches. Two-hundred more students qualified for the FRPL program in ’11-12 than ’10-11.

“We’re delighted with Nixa’s success using Registration Gateway and FRPL Gateway,” SRC Solutions Founder and CEO Patrick Maher said. “When the enrollment and re-enrollment processes are easier, parents save time, and districts have more resources to focus on their ultimate goal – providing quality educations.”
