Parent permission without the paper.From enrollment forms to field trip permission slips to athletic waivers, schools require parents to sign multiple documents each year. For parents, a slight hassle; for teachers and administrators, a management nightmare of sending out forms, getting them back, processing the information and filing hard copies.
EdConsent makes your job easier by allowing you to electronically send documents out to parents for their signature, tracking their responses and automatically filing digital copies of the forms. This saves both countless hours and limited filing storage space.
Convert paper forms to paperless formsYou don’t need to start from scratch; just copy or upload your existing documents into the form builder and add a few text and signature fields. Parents can then fill out the form online and sign with the click of a button. Got a new form to create? Our form builder will have you creating digital forms in seconds.
Manage responses electronicallyOnce a parent signs the form, you’re updated instantly on your dashboard. You can easily track who has given permission and who needs a reminder. You can even set a due date for reminders to be sent automatically, saving you time following up with parents. Consent tracking reports can be exported into a spreadsheet or CSV file at any time.
Fully integrated with Student Information Systems (SIS)Our software integrates seamlessly with your SIS, allowing you to easily import student contact information and parent email addresses while eliminating manual data entry.
Parent dashboard keeps parents informedParents get access to a dashboard that shows which forms they’ve signed and which ones they still need to approve. For parents with more than one kid at school, the dashboard can show forms for all their children under a single login.
Works anywhere, anytime, on any deviceBecause our software is entirely web-based, with nothing to download, it works flawlessly on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones, no matter what operating system is used. Both you and parents can sign from any device, while you can access all your forms and responses from the classroom, the break room, or anywhere else.
Safe and secureWe started this company on the belief that nothing is more important than the safety of our students, including their data. With signatures and personally identifiable information on each of these forms, you can’t afford to leave that kind of data on a piece of paper sitting in a desk filing drawer or in a student’s backpack. By using an industry-leading cloud-based email delivery system and advanced encryption at every step, we safeguard this sensitive information to ensure security in the creation, distribution and processing of forms.
Better for the planet and your budgetSchools spend thousands of dollars on paper, ink, copying, filing and storage each year, not to mention the hundreds of staff hours it takes to manage these processes. EdConsent eliminates the need to physically print and store consent forms, freeing your time and money for more important things while reducing waste in the process.
