January 2011 Product Release

Elmhurst, IL (January 4, 2011) – Common Goal Systems (, the makers of SchoolInsight and TeacherEase, announces several major enhancements to its web-based software today. "We're particularly excited about the improvements to our student management system, SchoolInsight," says Pat Helmers, Vice President of Sales for the company. "The new online registration feature is just one of the many ways we're improving the user experience." The new functionality includes:

Online Registration
Run your annual student registration process through SchoolInsight. Parents can update their contact information online. Secretaries can view and accept changes without having to rekey the data. Get parental consent (e.g. photos, internet, etc.) without paper documents. Put your registration documents and student handbook online and distribute as part of registration. Manage the registration process through SchoolInsight; see at-a-glance how far along in the process you are.

Custom Reporting Improvements
Improved visibility into student tuition/fee data - spot trends and proactively take action. In addition to improved graphing for all summary reports, we added reporting for student fees. Users can now run detail and aggregate reports on students and student fees – see grouping by category, date and account.

Group Filters in more places
We've extended the group functionality to more pages to make it easier for schools to look at grouped student data and print reports. View and print report cards, transcripts, and student schedules by user defined groups.

Daily Deposit Report
This report helps users prepare daily deposits and get a better view of the payments received. View payments for any date range by payment type (e.g. check, cash, Visa, Mastercard) or by account. This report will allow you to better understand how much money should be in the cashbox by seeing the changes you processed during the day.

Copy Curriculum Maps
Now it's even easier to complete curriculum maps by copying maps from one course to another.
