Parent Booker launches new Shield the Vulnerable functionality.

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.

Parent Booker Generates $6,000 Revenues for 200 Student School

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.

Parents are of paramount importance in any student’s life, and they need to be informed and encouraged to participate.
