Now schools can set up opportunities so that only parents who have a Shield the Vulnerable certificate can sign up.
Parent Booker already offers the ability to optionally restrict sign up access based on:
- background checks
- tuberculosis tests
This now adds to the security checks that Parent Booker can implement for schools.
Your school can try out Parent Booker for free for an entire quarter. After that it’s just $59.95/month for the entire school.
Sign up for a free, no commitment trial.
Shield the Vulnerable
Parent Booker is proving to be a great revenue generator for its customers. One school with approximately 200 students and a service hour program where parents opted in for a $600 discount by doing service hours generated over $6,000 in additional revenue.
This was achieved using Parent Booker to track parents service hours and identify:
- Parents who had not performed any service hours who were then billed the $600 discount they had initially claimed
- Parents who had not met the service hour targets. These parents were billed a pro-rated amount
So if your school has fees and plans to offer a discount for parents that serve Parent Booker not only ensures fairness for all those parents who do serve their hours, but it provides additional revenue for the school.
Leagues of school principals, teachers, and parents are on the fence about the background checks and screening policies being mandated by school districts and state laws. Many find themselves asking, “is it worth it?” while others stringently demand such practices, alienating parents and reducing peripheral involvement in the process. Our children deserve to be protected by the potential threat of “wolves in volunteers’ clothing,” but it is of cardinal importance that the parents who genuinely want to be engaged in the development of their child’s success aren’t deterred by confusing rules, wasted resources, and lack of support from the education system itself. Parents are of paramount importance in any student’s life, and they need to be informed and encouraged to participate. Here are three great ways that schools can implement parent volunteer background checks, without reducing the number of sign ups Read More…
Background Checks & TB Tests
Events can be configured to require background checks or TB tests
Parent Booker events can now be set up so that only parents with the necessary background check or TB test on file can sign up.
This provides functionality that isn’t just needed, but for many states can be a matter of compliance where lack of controls can raise questions or even lead to suspension or dismissal.
Of course Parent Booker doesn’t do the actual background tests or TB tests – it simply lets schools record in the system which parents meet these requirements.
Schools using Parent Booker can ensure that only qualified parents can sign up for events requiring these checks. Other parents can still see these events but when they attempt to sign up they will be informed of the required checks an tests that must be on file with the school.
