Superintendent’s Report to the School Committee
August 8, 2018
NEW: Online Back-to-School Paperwork!We are excited to announce that we are now offering the convenience of online back to school paperwork for all schools through FamilyID (www.familyid.com). Swampscott Public Schools Athletics Department already uses this service, so if students play sports for SMS or SHS, then families already have an account!
FamilyID is a secure registration platform that will provide families with an easy, user-friendly way to sign our school policies, such as handbook agreements, media releases, acceptable use policies, and medical agreements. We are even able to give the option to upload a copy of a physical (or it can be turned in to each office). This system will help us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When families register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs.
A HUGE Thank You to Ms. Mackey Knowles, Director of Digital Learning and Educational Technology, for all her work on this!
