Schoolfront has been very responsive in meeting our requests.

I have been a SchoolFront user for three years and enjoy it immensely…Overall, the best thing since sliced bread.
~ Wendy Wurz,
Teacher, RCSD
I cannot think of any other tool that has so empowered parents and students.
~ Carol Sherwood,
Teacher, RCSD
I feel confident using the site because I know the data is backed up daily, so if there ever should be a problem, I won't have lost weeks, or even days, worth of data.
~ Pati Primarano,
Teacher, RCSD
This has been an excellent resource for our students and their families; it is way for parents to connect to what their child is doing in school.
~ Susan Towey,
Teacher, RCSD
Love the program. This program saves a ton of time.
~ Rose Gulley,
Teacher, RCSD
We have many international students and it makes it easy for the parents of those students to keep abreast of how their child is doing while at school.
~ Barbara McKell,
Technologist, Maplebrook School
I love this site. It's a real help. I just wish all teachers felt it was worth their time to help my child a little more.
~ Katherine Richards,
Parent, RCSD
SchoolFront provides the basis for T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More), with a way to have an ongoing communication between teacher / parent / student.
~ Wendy Wurz,
Teacher, RCSD
SchoolFront is great because they design it specifically for your school’s needs so that you can get your work done faster and more efficiently!
~ Mike Reed,
IT Manager, The Howe School
SchoolFront staff have been easy to work with -- they are flexible and patient; and while we are a very small, unique boarding school, we are treated very well by the team at schoolfront.
~ Barbara McKell,
Technologist, The Maplebrook School
If I find a bug, or something that could be reworked to improve service, all I had to do was email SchoolFront and they would take care of it, plus ask for more information. With the death of customer service all over the map, this is a true rarity.

Streamlining the Attendance Management Process in Schools & Districts

Many schools depend heavily on a rigorous attendance management process both to account for students throughout the day and to demonstrate adherence to state and federal attendance requirements.

SchoolFront supports attendance work-flows for a schools and districts requiring both strict and light attendance administration.

Attendance Management & Oversight

Attendance Process Oversight

If a school requires it, each period in the day an attendance administrator is now able to see if and when each teacher has submitted attendance as well as the attendance submitted so that he or she can investigate if a student is late or missing from class.

Take classroom attendance and easily oversee attendance in a whole school.
Easy Attendance Reminders

In the event that a teacher does not submit attendance in a timely manner, the administrator can easily send a reminder to the teacher.

Pre-Submission of Attendance

In the event that the attendance administrator is pre-notified of a student's lateness or absence, the system supports pre-submission of attendance by the administrator (e.g. if the student is in the infirmary and the administrator is notified before a class begins).

Attendance managers from the school office can easily see the realtime status of classroom attendance.

Take In-Classroom Attendance Multiple Ways

SchoolFront allows school administrators to oversee attendance submission for the entire school and all students and for teachers to manage attendance quickly and easily in their classrooms in several different ways depending on the teacher's situation.

  • Daily Planner Attendance
    Teachers can take attendance from their Daily Planner, a teacher dashboard which gives teachers access to all system information and functions that they need to run a classroom for a single period.
  • Mass Enter Attendance
    If a teacher is absent or wishes to take attendance and enter it later, they can add attendance for multiple days in the multi-month view.
  • Seating Chart Attendance
    If the teacher or students are new, the teacher can take attendance using a seating chart with student pictures to guide them.
Manage attendance in the classroom in a manner that makes sense to you!

Real-time Attendance for Administrators & Parents/Guardians

Teachers log attendance for all courses in SchoolFront and can note if a child is late, and by how many minutes late. Parents/guardians, students, can login and see up-to-date records of the child's attendance in all courses.

Attendance Alerts/Notifications for Parents/Guardians

SchoolFront allows parents/guardians and mentors to set up email alerts that will notify them when their child or children (1) get above or below a certain grade on graded coursework and/or (2) have more than a specified number of absences logged in the system.

Having this information at the point that it occurs helps parents/guardians and mentors to congratulate their child when they receive a good grade, encouraging the good behavior, and to address concerns with poor grades and attendance before they become bigger problems for the child academically.
