Making the most of your return to school

Discover how updating your processes can modernize operations and workflow in your district's offices


Even though schools are back to in-person learning, the pandemic taught us something about how automating processes can save time–and if educators need more of anything, it’s time.

Students, parents, and staff can work smarter and more effectively with self-service forms, electronic signatures, pre-populated agreements, and automated approval processes.

You can transform your agreement process by eliminating paper, automating workflows, and connecting the systems within your organization as you learn best practices for human resources, special education/student services, and procurement.

Join this eSchool News webinar to learn how to succeed as your organization continues to go digital, including:

  • How to digitally manage the teacher contract process efficiently and securely
  • How to complete district wide student/family back-to-school forms remotely, including IEPs
  • How to securely execute and track school purchases with audit trail reporting
