- SIS Integration
Seaside School, Inc., one of Florida’s first charter schools, was founded in 1996 offering grades 5 to 12 an education at 1 of 2 campuses.
The school was built from the vision of individuals who recognize that each student can succeed both academically and socially, even when the middle school years are notoriously seen as a time of self-doubt and low self-esteem.
Seaside began using the Smart Choice system in early 2015 to collect applications for new students. Moving to an online application process allowed the school to easily collect the information needed to process applicants, assign lottery priorities and collect important data like proof of residency, past grades and more.
Selection for new students happens using the Smart Choice Lottery component making it easy to place students and manage wait lists by campus and by grade. After selection, new students who have been offered placement can easily move through the online enrollment process filling out all enrollment forms online, quickly and efficiently.
Existing students are also included in the process for their annual re-enrollment or re-commitment process. The system integrated with the school’s student information system to import all existing students into the Smart Choice to allow them to re-commit or enroll online. The process is quick, simple and secure for both parents and administrators.Click here to visit their site
