We have been using online registration for at 5+ years now - my only problem with it is that the health info does not carry over year to year and the info is deleted over the summer. Parents will enter significant medical info the first year of enrollment and nothing else about the problem for the following years enrolled in the district - just assumed they told us once and that was enough. I wish the info carried over year to year so the parent can verify "yes" or "No" that the medical info still applies for the current school year.

Come to think of it, when we register RJJ for her camps, the medication boxes (along with all the home info and insurance info) come prepopulated! That would be an idea. I wonder how to do that. But then you're back with the same issue, parent doesn't update.

I send home a "home medication inventory" and ask parents to please complete it and return it in order to keep their student's file up to date. It works pretty well, most parents will complete it and return for me - I'm in a SPED/SEBSS program.

I really don't have experience in this area, but it seems that a simple verification box might help draw the parents attention to this section of the registration.
