SMART is a complete electronic certification process:
- Immediate remote data entry
- On-demand record access and report generation
- Paperless electronic certification of eligibility
- System integration eliminates repetitive data entry
- Record storage and retention throughout the years of a student career
Whether migrant students are spread out across school systems in states as vast as Colorado, SMART has local and state officials covered. SMART is like having a school district on your desktop, instantly ready for the re-certification process that begins anew every school year.
SMART workflows focus on what data fields are necessary for eligibility only, to get that student record quickly processed through to certification. SMART Filtering Tools allow a manager to create advanced analytical reporting on a customized basis, to get real-time data and relay it immediately back to regional offices or private vendor staffing companies.
SMART has different access levels or “roles” to match how data certification is delegated at the manager level. Action Icons facilitate movement through screen tasks. SMART stops data specialists from struggling with compliance activities and gets to certification faster. Federal compliance functionality ensures compatibility with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and Affirmative Action laws.
SMART’s end-to-end certification solution enables data specialists to immediately begin the record verification process after field recruiters have completed data entry. The electronic record is moved paperlessly through the SMART system from a regional office on to certification by your state education department’s accredited managers. SMART System Integration also eliminates duplicate manual re-entry of records at the MSIX and EdFacts levels.
SMART immediately improves certification rates across ALL education facilities in your entire state.
To prove that, we have created the SMART Certification Status Dashboard that measures how much time it’s taking to certify a student. Other dashboard analytical reports measure increased certification success rates, so that new federal allocation dollars are properly rewarded back to the appropriate local school system where those certifications occurred.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) span across these user roles. Each role is provided a view of the data relative to their role. SMART reports and data insights help hold staff or out-sourced vendors accountable and refine eligibility processes. Without SMART, your department overhead can grow expensive field operations unnecessarily especially in larger states with remote school systems.
Get certified, get your federal allocation funds – GET SMART!
