Monthly Mentions: March Newsletter

March 2017  – Rounding the corner to summer!

In March, the schools on quarter schedules will be wrapping up the 3rd quarter and getting ready to start 4th quarter. Here are some FastDirect functions that may need to be addressed:

  • Closing input for 3rd mid-quarter reports
  • Opening up teacher input for 3rd quarter report cards
  • Closing 3rd quarter report cards when teachers have finished importing grades

Registration is here and we would like to help make it easier. There are several features in FastDirect that make this possible. Here are some of those features:

  • Registration report
  • Online registration and re-registration
  • Registration finance account
  • File upload/file attachment for forms
  • Links to post forms for parents
  • WildCard fields to track registration forms
  • Applicants group for new students

Also, check out the Registration Video Tutorial on YouTube! Please contact HelpDesk for help getting started on any of these features or click the Newsletter button below for more information.

FDusers, please go to our full newsletter for the complete list of what’s coming up this month.

We have added a suffix field to the student files. If there is a student who is a ‘Jr.’ or a ‘III’, then you will be able to enter in this information in their file.

Administrators: For parents, viewing a student’s attendance has never been easier! Along with the other viewable reports (grade book, report cards, missing assignments), you can now allow parents to view their child’s attendance calendar!

Teachers: With permission from the Principal, teachers can edit ReportCard grades for the whole year without needing to go through the import process. This method is helpful because it won’t create added confusion for all teachers when only one teacher needs to make a change.

Parents: Tax season is approaching and FastDirect has a tax report for parents. This report can be found on their Home page and provides them with a clear and simple report for printing!
