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.

Focus on People, Processes & Data

Since activities required to manage the hosted/cloud SchoolFront environment are handled by FrontEdge Inc. (e.g. monitoring, data backup, troubleshooting, etc.), system administration in SchoolFront refers to the centralized management of software functionality and workflows for an entire school, district, or other group.

Migrating your data and processes to SchoolFront software provides many benefits to your school or district IT Department.

Click the school/district administrator-level areas of focus below for more information.


Users and User Permissions

For security reasons we at FrontEdge Inc. will not grant any users other than Administrators access to SchoolFront. Administrators are then responsible for adding and managing the access of all users in the system including school staff, students, parents/guardians, etc.

User access to parts of the system and system reports may be changed by adding and removing user roles to individual users and user accounts may be disabled if necessary.

Feature Configuration and Workflow Definition

SchoolFront was designed with flexibility in mind. We know that schools differ and therefore work differently so the system and the features within are configurable, and in some cases may be turned on or off.

Administrators define how the system is configured for the entire school or district.

School & District-Level Reporting

Reports like Report Cards, Transcripts, and State Reports require access to personal and academic data from all students and faculty and sometimes require access to longitudinal data (including multi-year) so the ability to run reports at this level is restricted to Administrators.

Distributed Processes

Some processes, like the management of Discipline or Attendance in a school/district, are distributed and require the coordination of activities across multiple school staff members. SchoolFront allows for the centralized administration of such processes.

Administrators overseeing Attendance, for example, can see see who has and has not submitted attendance, can trigger notifications in the event that attendance has not been submitted in a timely manner, can override the attendance statuses submitted if they have more information about a student absence, and do much more to ensure that this distributed process runs smoothly and that the inputs of each staff member are aggregated and acted upon appropriately.
