Frontline Education, a leading provider of school administration software for K-12 education, today announced that Mobile County Public Schools will leverage Frontline’s School Health Management solution as part of their school reopening plan. Frontline School Health Management, a comprehensive electronic health records and school nursing management system, includes recent enhancements and new functionality to support COVID-19 management, tracking and reporting for students and school staff. The software is being implemented at a critical time for Mobile County Public Schools who will be responsible for the health and safety of more than 57,900 students as well as 7,950 teachers across 89 schools this school year.

“The health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority. In these uncertain times, we need an innovative and adaptable system in place to alleviate some of the administrative burden and allow our staff to focus on creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment,” said Terrence Mixon, Assistant Superintendent of Mobile County Public Schools. “Frontline School Health Management represents an investment, not only in our protection against the pandemic, but in the overall health and well-being of our district and community.”

Mobile County Public Schools’ health services program encompasses everything from first aid and safety, communicable disease control and crisis intervention to health education, special education support and personnel programs. Frontline School Health Management supports these efforts with nurse office management as well as tools that provide increased visibility and early warning signs to help schools and state health officials as they work to manage the spread of COVID-19. With states across the country, including Alabama, finalizing and executing their school reopening plans, ensuring a safe environment is more critical now than ever before.

“Mobile County Public Schools and the surrounding community are clearly dedicated to providing a safe and healthy school environment for their students and staff. They have been proactive and thoughtful in their approach to reopening schools in the midst of the global health crisis,” said Frontline CEO, Mark Gruzin. “We are honored to be a part of their committed and comprehensive approach and we look forward to supporting the district as they work to maintain a safe, healthy and consistent learning environment for their students and staff.”

Frontline School Health Management has recently been enhanced to include extensive functionality for managing COVID-19 related health data, allowing districts to:

  • Efficiently and securely collect critical COVID-19 related information on the student and staff populations through a mobile app and browser-based portal
  • Rapidly send alerts to parents and staff when there are changes to health status for students and staff, closures/openings, and policies
  • Effectively educate and train students, parents, and staff on safe practices, policies and procedures
  • Support school-focused contact tracing as well as quarantine/isolation and reentry procedures
  • Proactively monitor critical data with COVID-19-specific reporting and analytics
  • Manage physical, mental and behavioral needs in one comprehensive system
  • Support state needs related to the management and tracking of COVID-19 through school district data aggregation and reporting

Mobile County Public Schools joins hundreds of districts and educational organizations in 44 states across the country that have included Frontline School Health Management in their back to school planning, including six of the nation’s 20 largest school districts. With increasing health and safety concerns and regulations affecting reopening plans, districts will use Frontline School Health Management to support their physical, mental and behavioral health management needs, track and report COVID-19 related incidences, and increase overall efficiencies in their school health programs.
