Improved Student Search. Student search can now look across the district (not just in your current school). Automatically switch schools when selecting the student. This is useful for admins who manage multiple schools.
     School Main > Students - Single View

New cleaner look for online registration. We created a tab motif to improve aesthetics and usability. Group related fields together to make it easier for parents to navigate and enter data. Default tabs are “Student Information,” “Family Information,” “Emergency Contacts” and “Miscellaneous.” Create additional tabs too.

Easier online assignment hand in. Minor improvements to the assignment creation and hand-in process. Instructors can now accept file uploads from students (like Excel, MS Word, audio, or video files) without first giving them a file down. They can also request online document hand-in.
