WE Expect Excellence: Online Enrollment Verification Implementation – Jim Newton & I.T. Team

The Information & Technology Department Application Development and Systems Support teams successfully developed and implemented an Online Registration and Enrollment Verification process to replace the former paper-based system. 

The improved online process, supported by the Edupoint Online Registration module, increases parent involvement by leveraging our ParentVue application in the Synergy student information system.  Most importantly, completing the process before the start of school gives the District a better idea about enrollment numbers and allows for timely adjustment to staffing as needed.

The I.T. team worked for 14 months to define, develop, test and implement the product. Application Development and Systems Support staff worked tirelessly to test and improve the system to meet BSD needs. They also provided training classes, documentation and videos to assist school staff and parents in successfully implementing Online Registration and Enrollment Verification at the start of this school year.

Jim Newton, project lead, established an Oregon Student Information System (OSIS) consortium workgroup that met weekly for more than three months to define new requirements to improve the module to better serve districts throughout the state of Oregon.

As of September 14, 2017, more than 79% of District families have successfully completed the online enrollment verification process, and 1,149 new BSD students have been registered and accepted by our schools.

Congratulations, I.T. team on the successful implementation of Online Registration and Enrollment Verification.

WE Expect Excellence: Successful opening of three District school – Facilities Development, Custodial and Maintenance Teams

Congratulations to the many Facilitates Development, Maintenance, and Custodial team members who successfully managed construction, unpacked, cleaned, and readied three new schools for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.

Sato Elementary, Vose Elementary and Mountainside High School all welcomed students and staff on the morning of Tuesday, September 5, 2017 thanks to the herculean efforts of facilities, maintenance and custodial staff who completed final cleaning, unpacked and built furniture, and set up libraries, computer labs, offices and classrooms.

Volunteers from throughout the District also worked countless hours to ensure all three buildings were school-ready on Tuesday.

"This was an amazing example of the collaboration that will drive us to excellence as we continue implementing our community's $680 million Bond Program. We opened three brand new schools, two of which were built in a year, and moved or established four whole school communities; a feat never before attempted here at BSD. With teammates like this, we will succeed. Thank you all," says Sheri Stanley, Administrator for Facilities Development.

Thank you all, for your commitment to excellence!
