||August 28, 2006 - Victoria, BC - Methacton School District located in Pennsylvania Selects Book King to Administer Scheduling and Registration Requirements for Seven Schools in the District.
The Methacton School District is located in Montgomery County in Norristown, Pennsylvania. The District encompasses an area of approximately 32 square miles and has a population of 30,179, according to the 2000 federal census. During 2001-02, the district provided basic educational services to 4,999 pupils through the employment of 23 administrators, 398 teachers, and 280 full-time and part-time support personnel. The following schools make up the Methacton School District: Audubon Elementary School, Eagleville Elementary School, Methacton High School, Woodland Elementary School, Arcola Intermediate School, Arrowhead Elementary School, Worcester Elementary School.
The Methacton School District Board of School Directors is committed to use of school facilities by the community it serves. The Methacton School District Community Education Program is one way that they strive to accomplish that goal. In order to offer Community Education Programs and internal programs, Methacton School District requires a cost effective solution.
The Methacton School District was experiencing several service delivery issues stemming from their manual scheduling and registration system. School staff spent considerable administrative time scheduling facilities and registering courses while having a constant requirement to access scheduling and registration information kept at each school. With no formal approval process in place this caused scheduling issues between the schools and with the public. Overall this system lacked the automation Methacton required to delivery their programs cost effectively and without conflicts or errors.
Book King's web based facility scheduling and registration management software will drive the delivery of Methacton's internal and Community Education Programs. Book King enables Methacton to centralize the scheduling and registration information into a single database accessible by all the schools in the district. Since no software installs are required, Book King's web based solution allows for rapid deployment to all Methacton staff and support personnel. Features such as an automated approval process, invoice e-mailing, multi-user interface and conflict management have enabled the Methacton School District to deliver all their programs with considerable savings in administrative time and cost.
