One of the best features of most school administration software is that it allows for the distribution of student records across all offices. This means that faculty, staff, principals, and nurses (those who have clearance) can access any important information that they need. It also means that when an update is made to a file in one office it will instantly carry over to the others. There are some packages that actually allow different schools within a district to easily transfer files when a student graduates from one and moves onto another.

Many programs also increase parents' ability to track the progress of their children. Grades, attendance records, and disciplinary actions can be monitored on a secure site on the Internet. This feature is designed to keep parents active in the education of their children. If they notice something that they are unhappy with, they can quickly schedule meetings with the appropriate teachers or administrators.

Admin Software for Private Schools

Most private schools have slightly different administration needs than public schools. The majority of the differences arise from the fact that many private schools have requirements for admission. There are software packages designed specifically for private schools that have applicant tracking features and other tools that help an office manage the entire admissions process.

Registration for classes can also be handled by most school software. Private or public schools that give students some say in the classes they take are often forced to have several days of registration. This process is usually chaotic and it costs time and money. Many software products will allow students to register for classes online, making things a bit easier on both students and administrators.
