Schoolfront has been very responsive in meeting our requests.
~ Barbara McKell,
Technologist, Maplebrook School
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.
~ Pati Primarano,
Teacher, RCSD

Identify Troubled Students

SchoolFront allows counselors to identify students that are struggling before it’s too late to help them back onto the right track.

Support Portal

The SchoolFront support portal provides all of the information counselors need to use the system and provides a means for counselors who need additional help to log support requests with the SchoolFront Support Team.

Pubic & Private Web Pages

SchoolFront's website hosting and content management system allows schools and districts to create and easily maintain school-branded websites. It also allows teachers and staff to create and collaboratively maintain sub-sites within the school website for just about any purpose.

Collaborative maintenance means that staff members can give other staff members, and even students or parents, permission to help them maintain sub-site content.

Examples:

Department Pages

Post an overview of the department and charter. List department members and chairpersons. Post course offering and descriptions. Post department member profiles, contact information, pictures, and link to teacher pages.

Teacher / Staff Pages

Teachers can maintain their own homepages with any content they desire. This could include lists of the classes and activities they lead, links to websites with information relevant to coursework, links to course pages, etc.

Course Pages

Pages can be created by teachers and teaching teams to support specific courses. As with Teacher / Staff Pages, course pages can host just about any content a teacher or staff member desires.

Activity Pages

Pages can be created by teachers and teaching teams to support specific activities like sports and clubs. As with course Pages, activity pages can host just about any content a teacher or staff member desires. If a club has a student president or group of students who are responsible for the operation of the club, the primary staff member responsible for the activity can grant one or more students permission to edit activity page content.

Online Forms & Surveys

School administrators and staff members can generate online forms for any purpose. These forms can be added to teacher's pages, activity pages, etc. They can be created to support any school purpose or process.

Some examples include permission slips, PTA signup, admissions application, job application, contact management, surveys, event / activity sign-up, and student council voting.

Secure Blogging & Forums

School staff members can create and maintain multi-media blogs for any purpose.

Privacy restrictions can be added to blogs to allow only certain users (other teachers, students, parents, etc.) to view, edit, and comment on the blogs. All blog entries and comments posted are traceable and only authorized members of the school community are permitted to access student and staff content.

Some great examples of how blogs are used in schools include:

  • Teacher blogs which teachers write to share teaching experiences with peers.
  • Course blogs which teachers can use to encourage collaborative writing and sharing with all students in a specific course.
  • Activity blogs which student groups can maintain on a specific topic, such as creative writing or photography.

Data Backup

FrontEdge Inc. performs a nightly differential backup of all SchoolFront system data and performs a full backup weekly—this backed up data can be restored at the request of counselors should they accidentally delete or otherwise lose information.

Feature Requests

Counselors who discover bugs or who would like to see new system features (or even adjustments to existing features) can submit requests to the development team through the SchoolFront support portal. The FrontEdge Inc. Development Team works to continuously improve the features and functionality available in SchoolFront to address the evolving needs of SchoolFront users by means of customer feedback and customer and industry research and benchmarking.

Centralized System Updates

New features and system enhancements can easily be posted to the hosted site, where teachers login as usual and immediately reap the benefit of the new functionality or system enhancement. Centralized system updates eliminate the need for counselors to download patches and upgrades.

Secure Access

SchoolFront youth mentors with secure, up-to-date access to their mentee's student information using a unique username and password. Mentors who login see only information that relates to their mentee.

Course Enrollment

 

Course enrollment can be done centrally by a few resources in the school or district, or responsibility can be distributed across resources (e.g. academic advisors can work directly with students to create and manage the student schedules).
