A Better Way to Register K-12 Students for School

Simplify Registration for Parents

Parents can register students online anytime and anywhere, ending inconvenient trips to the district office. 

  • Instant Login
    Parents new to the district can create a ParentVUE account and start the registration process immediately. No special login is required from the district. 
  • Family Registration
    Synergy connects student and parent records, so shared information such as address and phone number can be entered just one time and populate records for the entire family.
  • Multi-Language Support 
    Districts may support multiple languages for each type of email sent during the registration process, enabling most families to register without a translator. 
  • Document Uploads & Form Approvals
    Parents can upload address and birth verification records for storage in the system.  Authorizations such as information releases and field trip participation forms can also be approved online.
  • School Preferences
    Parents can select up to five schools per student, consult embedded maps for school locations and distances, and list schools in order of preference.
  • Visual Progress & Completion Indicators  
    Parents can easily track how far they have progressed through each section and verify when a section is complete.
  • Pause & Resume 
    Data is automatically saved by the system, so parents can exit before the form is complete and pick up later where they left off if time is limited or they need to locate documents. 
  • Status Monitoring
    Parents may log back in at any time to check registration status. When the registration has been processed, parents receive an email notifying them of the district’s decision.

Save Time for Staff

District staff review completed registration records online, with streamlined queue management.

  • Address & Boundary Validation
    Quickly validate addresses and confirm them as residential with Google Maps™ mapping service.

  • Document Collection & Storage 
    Districts can collect required documents from parents online – such as a birth certificate and proof of address.
  • Immunization Validation
    Synergy immediately validates immunization dates and captures important details about allergies, medical conditions and required medications.
  • Registration Flags
    When a registration record requires special consideration, a flag appears in the queue indicating the reason: ELL, discipline history, health condition, special education or re-enrollment. A record may be assigned more than one flag.
  • Auto-Alerts to Key Stakeholders
    When a student is accepted, automated notifications are sent to selected user groups for specific registration criteria – such as an existing IEP – so staff members receive all the information they need, and nothing more.
  • Queues
    Staff can view boundary status, registration flags, and enrollment statistics alongside the registration queue to help accelerate the review and decision-making process.
  • Automated Approval & Processing
    Districts can automate the approval and processing workflow for all registration data.

Personalize Registration Pathways

Districts can create registration forms that adapt to user input for for more efficient registration.

  • Dynamic Forms
    Dynamic forms enable districts to deliver different form flows for different types of students. They can be used to trigger school override selections for English Language Learners, for example, or to request IEP information for students with a Special Services flag.
  • Unique Fields
    Each unique pathway may specify one or more specialized form fields to appear based on locale or on parent answers to select questions. 

Ensure Data Accuracy & Integrity

Safeguards in the registration process help districts maintain complete, accurate and secure student records. 

  • Required Fields
    Districts may mark any field “Required” to ensure that parents provide all necessary information before submitting the student registration.
  • Pre-Filled Forms
    Parents who are re-enrolling students start with pre-populated fields to avoid the creation of duplicate records and data inconsistencies. 
  • Read-Only Fields
    Prevent editing of fields that should not be changed when students re-enroll, such as birth date. 
  • Duplicate Prevention
    Enrollment records are created only when students are accepted. The system checks for duplicate records during the Accept process, generates a warning when duplicates are detected, and can be set to allow or prevent the duplicate enrollment. 
  • Secure Data
    Synergy provides the highest level of privacy and security in compliance with FERPA and HIPAA requirements.
