Solving the "Time and Information" Dilemma through Technology: Electronic Student Registration and Data Systems.
Evans, Bruce; Ward, Scott
This article describes how one high school addressed the time-consuming problem of registration by looking at an electronic solution. Typically counselors were spending 50-60% of their time with registration and schedule change. This school worked with a software company to produce an Internet/telephone registration system. The system took into account other problems faced by counselors, including planning information being stored in paper files; counselors, students, and parents not having easy access to these documents; and students not having easy access to college and career information. With this new system in place, counselors now know much more about each student's needs and progress in school, plus they are able to spend more time each day implementing the comprehensive guidance program.
