The new school year is just around the corner and it's time to start thinking about organization....
Last year, I created a Google Form for my student information, and it was one of my favorite things. Using Google Forms allowed me to send the "paperwork" prior to Meet the Teacher night. Thus, that step freed me to focus on forming relationships with my students and parents.
I wasn't the only one who loved Google Forms
Feedback from parents was extremely positive. They loved the fact that they didn't have to sit and stress over paperwork during "Meet the Teacher Night." I just sent to the link prior to "Meet the Teacher" and they were able to fill it out on their own time. I received almost ALL of the information before Meet the Teacher and only had about 3 that filled it out the night of.
All has been submitted.... Now what?
After the parents click 'submit', all of the information automatically goes to a spreadsheet that only you can see. I just simply saved the shortcut to my computer screen and always had easy access to emergency contact information, pick up information, etc... You can also print a copy if you prefer.
