Functionality

Student Registration

ZippSlip can take SIS student registration data and present it to parents for review. Returned information is tagged with changes and may be automatically pushed to the SIS. The process is faster and more accurate than using paper.

ZippSlip also allows publishing of registration packets at the district level, and processing of returned information at the appropriate school.

Data changed by the parent can be selectively updated to the SIS. ZippSlip’s solution dramatically reduces the labor involved in distributing forms, collecting imported forms and updating of the SIS.
Ditch the old forms and save time, money, paper, and postage. ZippSlips digital forms integrates school information and provides an easy and seamless way to fill out information, across an array of devices.

Student Health / Safety Information

ZippSlip’s HIPAA/FERPA compliant system electronically connects nurses and staff to parents to keep critical student health information current and easily accessible on dashboards.

With ZippSlip, critical student health issues such as food allergies, medication and other conditions are made available to the appropriate staff automatically. Parents may update this information at any time from their portal or app and nurses and teachers of the student are made aware immediately. This approach is far more efficient and, more importantly, safer than paper based processes.

Personalized notifications

Send email and text and multimedia notifications to parents. Provide the information to parents on bus schedules, school activities, updates from the principal, etc. ZippSlip allows sharing of this and other information specific to their students.

ZippSlip not only allows administrators to pick specific groups, it can also merge student specific information imported from other applications.

ZippSlip notifies parents via email and text when new items are sent by schools, reminds parents as deadlines approach, provides summary views to teachers and administrators which show which parents have responded, which have not, payment information, etc.

Internal Forms, Approvals and Workflow

Eliminate the paperwork for any approvals process involving forms and one more approvers within the school or district. Examples include employee agreements, vacation requests, special program approvals, etc.

With the Internal Forms module, school staff will see all mandatory forms that must be completed. Administrators can track who have or have not completed these forms.

Many internal processes involve requests initiated by staff. For these cases, ZippSlip supports a ‘kiosk’ approach where a user can select a form and submit it for online approval. Each form can be configured with one or more approvers in a workflow specific to the form. Approvers at school level or district level are supported. Furthermore, approvers may ask submitters to accept, modify or reject requests and all is tracked online.
