D39C’s New Student Enrichment Registration & Management System
We decided to move to a new system for a few reasons:
- This site uses servers that are much better suited for a cyber-attack, thus keeping confidential and private information about our children safer!
- This allows you to manage everything from student information, allergy information, communication with coaches, and payments from one location.
- It is easier on all the parent-volunteers to manage classroom rosters, attendance, etc. from an easy to use app!
