For Immediate release
July 2015 Product Release
Common Goal Systems, a leading developer of cloud-based software for schools, announces several enhancements to TeacherEase and SchoolInsight. TeacherEase is software for the digital classroom and SchoolInsight is a comprehensive student information system.
The new functionality includes:
Website Redesign. We've updated our look and feel to a more modern "flat design." We hope everyone enjoys it! Some highlights:
Free-Reduced Lunch Application Verification. The verification process for Free-Reduced Lunch Applications has been implemented, which completes work in this area. We hope that most SchoolInsight customers will use this new functionality, as it should save considerable time. There is no additional charge for SchoolInsight subscribers.
Generate the random application sample to be verified. Per federal requirements, three percent (up to 3000) of approved applications are selected at random, with priority given to "error prone" applications. This process can be initiated once per academic year, after October 1st. In addition, individual applications can be verified for cause. Upon promotion, free-reduced students will automatically receive a 30-day grace period with their previous free-reduced status which can be made permanent when their application is processed.
