The Syracuse City School District is one of New York state’s “Big 5” Districts and has a vision to build, support, and sustain school communities that provide all students with a high-quality education that prepares them to graduate as responsible, active citizens ready for success in college and careers and prepared to compete in a global economy.

Inspired by this goal, Smart Choice collaborated with the district on an online solution for their various complex processes.  From choice applications, transfers, new and early childhood enrollment and more, the system takes a fresh approach with each process to ensure that the system is at its highest usability for parents and administrators.

By integrating with the district’s student information system, the Smart Choice System is easily able to facilitate re-enrollment for existing students in the district with quick, simple forms pre filled with data on file. New students and students interested in choice programs can easily browse their options and submit and manage applications online from their Smart Choice account and parent dashboard. Scheduling appointments has never been easier for parents and administrators using the Scheduling Component which makes overbooking and scheduling errors a thing of the past.

Selection or placement of students is as varied as their choices in SCSD and the Smart Choice system can easily handle different processes across programs and schools. Priorities, requirements and placement processes are easily assigned to specific programs to meet the needs of the district in a way that is automated and fair.
