But, since I'm a critic, here are a couple of things that I'd like to see in the coming years for registration:
- Online registration or forms that can be printed and completed prior to attending. I realize that many parents do not have internet access, but this would save a lot of time for those of us who do.
- One check covers every expense. At my daughter's school there is an activity fee and a supply fee. Both are separate per grade. This means that a parent will write at least two checks, and possibly many more. Shannon Conlon, the principal, acknowledged that she also thought it was a hassle, but explained that the fees need to be kept separate because they go into separate accounts. Perhaps this can't be avoided, but it would be nice if JCPS could work toward it.
Have you attended registration? How did it go?
