Student Registration

Our Student Registration continues to simplify the registration process for schools & districts across the nation.  Our product team worked with many schools either through survey responses, interviews or prototype testing to identify improvements. 

Throughout 2022, new integration touch points were released to further integrate our Scheduling and Student Registration solutions to streamline building rosters based on registration data and allowing those rosters to appear on ArbiterLive and Mobile!

We ♥️ our Assigners.

When Crew Assigning, if a crew member is not available, we will leave that members spot open and not bump the other crew members up a position.
