MYSCHOOLWORX ADDS NEW TOOL FOR TUITION PAY

Timothy Green, Sr.   |   May 15, 2022

Easy Tuition Pay & Parent Billing.

Invoice, Purchase & Pay Allows Schools to Bill and Collect School Fees from Parents From Directly Within the MySchoolWorx Platform.

Starting this fall, MySchoolWorx schools will have a fresh new option for collecting funds from parents directly from within MySchoolWorx: Invoice, Purchase & Pay.

MySchoolWorx IP&P provides a more convenient way of collecting funds from parents for a variety of things, safely and securely.

 “This additional payment option enables schools to eliminate costly third-party apps, giving parents the convenience of managing their child's tuition and other school fees with one single login," said James Gardner, COO and Director of Development for MySchoolWorx." 

Some of the ways schools can use IP&P:

  • LUNCHES: Parents will be able to place orders and pay for their child's lunches directly from within MySchoolWorx.
  • TUITION: Gives schools the ability to create tuition invoices (one-time and recurring) and gives parents the ability to pay directly from within MySchoolWorx seamlessly (no additional accounting apps needed).
  • SCHOOL MERCHANDISE: Create your own online "Stores" for parents to pay for uniforms, books, and school merchandise safely and securely.
  • EVENT & ACTIVITY FEES: Field trip fees, sports registration fees...just about anything your school needs to collect for can be invoiced or added to your school's store in MySchoolWorx.

IP&P is one of two options schools can choose from for consolidating parent payment activities from within  MySchoolWorx. (MySchoolWorx already integrates with QuickBooksOnline for similar functions).

"We'll continue to offer QBO as well for Quickbooks users, " Gardner added.  "Admins will have the ability to choose the preferred payment tool that works best for their school in their portal."

MYSCHOOLWORX ED-FI CERTIFIED BY INDIANA DEPT. EDU

James Gardner   |   August 6, 2021

State Data Reporting Simplified

Through MySchoolWorx

We're excited to announce that MySchoolWorx has been certified by the Ed-Fi Data Exchange as an approved SIS vendor for the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE).

What does this mean for Indiana schools? Simply put, easier reporting.

Ongoing data reporting to state DE's has been a standard procedure for most public schools for many years, a process that oftentimes has been cumbersome and time-consuming for the school. 

As state and federal grants and other school funding have expanded to private schools, so have data reporting requirements. Streamlining the data collection and reporting process has become more urgent to accommodate schools of all sizes

and technology status, a feat the IDOE is accomplishing through the Data Exchange and Ed-Fi certification process.

Indiana schools now have the option to turn on a feature within MySchoolWorx that will automatically send their school’s required data to the Ed-Fi Data exchange for them, alleviating them from performing manual exports or uploads to the IDOE Data Exchange.

"

"

“This certification honors our ongoing mission

for making school life easier for everyone.”  

Timothy Green, Sr., MSW CEO

Eliminating the burden of time-consuming and complex manual uploads equate to more than just a convenience for schools. It nets them more time to devote to their core purpose of educating.

Indiana schools looking for an easier-to-use SIS and daily classroom management program have always been delighted to find that in MySchoolWorx, and now reporting their schools’ data to the state is easier, too.

HELP FOR PRIVATE SCHOOLS DURING COVID-19: 

A SHORT LIST

TImothy Green   |   March 18, 2020

"

"

Our goal is simply this:

help schools operate, communicate and educate.

As our country weathers the coronavirus (COVID-19), our commitment to our customers, team members and communities remains our top priority.

We are encouraged by some great things happening in the midst of it all, big and small gestures by everyday folks. "Tiny silver linings”, if you will. It’s our hope is that you are experiencing some of those bright moments each day as well.

For us, it’s been a busy week. We serve all types of private schools, including on-site, virtual school and home school groups, and it’s rewarding to see them leveraging MySchoolWorx especially at this time.

Our veteran remote teams have been focused on helping customers old and new use MySchoolWorx to stay connected. And that means the entire school community – from Admins, staff, and Teachers to Parents and Students.  MySchoolWorx was built for cloud communications of daily classroom life. 

Many of them are faced with a new challenge: It’s a big task for an entire school to shift to remote education overnight, and we salute our customers who are doing just that right now.

It is our privilege to help them with so many things – from instant communications with parents and students about online classes to sending assignments to students at home. That’s just a fraction of the things our software does, but they have been workhorses this week and it gives us great joy to know we’re helping. 

For those unfamiliar, MySchoolWorx is a student information and classroom management program. We cater to private schools and help them with all sorts of things, from single and group communications, attendance, lesson plans, online grades and report cards, to managing things like tuition pay, online enrollment, and transcripts.  

Especially as it relates to closures due to COVID-19, our goal is simply this: help schools operate, communicate and educate.

In that spirit we also want to pass along some other essential tools (many of them free) to help schools facing sudden online operations.

So here is our "short list": These are things we’ve used and can recommend helping a school instantly get into online education, short term or long term.

MySchoolWorx An essential, 5-star student information, classroom management and communications program for your entire school community. extended free trial and demo here

Zoom Video Conferencing (Free "Basic' Plan) for online classes up to 100 attendees at a time and up to 40 minutes in length, unlimited classes.)  get it here

Loom Screen Video Creator (Free for education!) Teachers record lessons in advance including materials directly on their computer, like PowerPoint presentations, etc. - then send a link to students at home)  get it here

Internet Service: While most do, not everyone has an internet connection at home. These folks are providing free or discounted internet service for a couple of months to families in need. 

Along with MySchoolWorx, these basic tools will help a school get classes up and running online in no time, and carry you through the upcoming months and beyond.

In the meantime, stay well, stay connected and finish strong.

MYSCHOOLWORX NAMED GETAPP CATEGORY LEADER

Timothy Green, Sr.   |   August 21, 2020

School Administration 

Software Leader

We’re happy to announce that MySchoolWorx has been named a top School Administration software Category Leader by GetApp

GetApp is an online engine organizations use to make the right software choice. GetApp's Category Leaders highlights top-ranked North American software products based on ratings from end-users in five key areas: ease of use, value for money, functionality, customer support, and likelihood to recommend.  (See MySchoolWorx’s ranking as School Administration Software Category Leader here).

“MySchoolWorx consistently gets high reviews from users because its ease of use uniquely resonates with private schools, many of which have had to shift abruptly to remote learning or a blend of onsite and remote learning during the pandemic, "  said Tim Green, MySchoolWorx CEO. "We're honored by this designation and delighted to help make hundreds of school tasks easier."

Schools can always use extra help. But when the pandemic first began shuttering onsite classes in the spring, schools across the country were scrambling with a mix of email and disparate apps to achieve multiple functions, which made things difficult to manage and created confusion for parents and students.  

"Our schools were able to adapt more quickly because they already had MySchoolWorx," Green said. "Their entire school community was already connected through one visually appealing hub."

MySchoolWorx also helps students by allowing them to communicate with their classroom teachers via safe and secure messaging, as well as letting them retrieve lesson plans and assignments, post finished homework, and chart their progress with real-time access to test scores and grades.   

Teachers appreciate how easily they can create lesson plans, post to the online grade book, mark attendance, and keep in touch with parents. And School Administrators find MySchoolWorx to be an operational lifeline by providing easy online enrollment, student information and transcript management, as well as options for tuition-pay and text messages for urgent communications. All help overcome the challenges of day-to-day operations as well as making the annual accreditation process so much easier.

IS THERE TIME TO SWITCH YOUR CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT PROGRAM FOR THE 2019/20 SCHOOL YEAR?

James Gardner   |   May 15, 2019

The final weeks of the 2018/19 year are coming to a close, and most administrators are already thinking about ways they can make the upcoming 2019/20 school year even better for students, teachers and parents.

Admins are looking for ways to streamline daily processes that bog them down and take precious time from their school's core mission of educating kids, and from daily tasks that keep them from improving student performance, teacher satisfaction and parent engagement.

It's not too late to find a better way.

The good news is MySchoolWorx solves all of those problems and more. And because it's so easy to learn and use, your team can hit the ground running in August with an easier way to do everything.
