Educators often have to manage multiple apps and software in the course of the day, not to mention reams of paper from take-home assignments to field trip permission slips. These cumbersome tasks take valuable time out of the day—time that could be spent on helping students thrive. At SchoolStatus, it’s our mission to help educators cut through the noise with effective, easy-to-use solutions that enable better school-home communication and streamline educator’s busy workflows.

That’s why today, we’re excited to announce we’re adding another innovative solution to the SchoolStatus family of products. Introducing SchoolStatus Forms & Flows (formerly Operoo), a workflow automation platform designed to streamline and simplify processes for K-12 schools and districts. Forms & Flows is available as an integrated add-on for SchoolStatus Connect, so you can find your most effective K-12 solutions all in one place. 

In this post, we’ll explain how SchoolStatus Forms & Flows can help your district operate more efficiently and save valuable time. 

Forms & Flows for Districts

SchoolStatus Forms & Flows makes it easier to work within your district. With flexible, customizable digital forms and workflows that can be adapted to your district’s existing processes, you can speed up and simplify tasks in your school or district without missing a beat. 

SchoolStatus Forms & Flows helps your district:

  • Speed up existing processes. From equipment requisitions to expense forms, your workflows will move faster and more efficiently. 
  • Digitize any form. Help admins in your district work smarter by updating existing paperwork to a fully digital format, including automated follow-ups and next steps. 
  • Cut down on costs. By reducing the amount of paper flowing through your district, you’re not just saving the trees—you’re saving valuable time and money from your budget. 

Forms & Flows for Family Communications

Educators are awash in paper. Permission slips, homework assignments, pop quizzes, hall passes, flyers, lesson plans—all of which eventually makes its way into digital form through cumbersome manual entry. SchoolStatus Forms & Flows helps to cut down on paperwork and open up time for classroom instruction and student engagement. 

With SchoolStatus Forms & Flows, you can:

  • Make it easy to get family approvals. Don’t lose permission slips at the bottom of a backpack. Send family authorization forms and reminder messages via SMS, email, or the Classroom Feed with SchoolStatus Connect.
  • Securely process cashless payments. Process library fees, field trip costs, extracurricular dues, lunch bills, and more with secure browser-based payments. 
  • Help families get up to speed. Simplify onboarding at the start of the school year with customized workflows that help introduce families to your school’s apps and tools.
