Advantages

The advantages of the MSC system are wide reaching. It will help Administrators and staff improve every facet of how schools are operated, all while keeping parents well informed about everything happening within their child's school life. MSC will help you manage everything from online fundraising efforts and going paperless, to managing students in every way imaginable!

Advantages for Schools

School Administrators, there are countless advantages to using the MSC portal! Imagine how the MSC portal will help your school system to:

  • Reliably communicate with parents without thousands of easily misplaced paper copies
  • Significantly reduce the administrative efforts required for managing activities
  • Immediately diminish the heavy cost of printing thousands of fliers, permission slips, and enrollment forms
  • Increase parent involvement in fundraising activities by automating the entire process: making it easier to manage and more fun for everyone

The MSC system also includes a built-in work flow process which allows school administrators to review and approve information entered by parents. MSC seamlessly integrates with existing student information systems (SIS), effectively eliminating double data entry and ensuring that the data being stored in the SIS is completely accurate and secure.
