Jackrabbit class is an online database that is useful for any arts organization that offers classes. Class based businesses such as dance studios need to keep track of student enrollment, class rosters, attendance, parent contact information, tuition payments and staff time sheets. The Jackrabbit system allows businesses to keep all of this information in one place and allows you to set varying levels of access of administrative information to staff members. Pricing for this tool is determined by the number of students that your organization serves. Prices range between $45 per month for schools with enrollment up to 100 students and $155 per month for 501 – 1,000 students.
Once you decide to set up your online database you will have access to separate system views for administrators, staff, parents. One of the biggest assets of the Jackrabbit system is the ease of the enrollment through the parent portal. The enrollment format is similar to setting up an account for online shopping. It guides parents through entering their family’s info including phone numbers and emails, emergency contacts, medical and allergy alerts, and child’s birthdate. Once their account is set up they are given access to see the class schedule that your business offers. They are then able to click the classes they want their child to take and add them to their cart.
The staff portal is also an important feature. The ability to track attendance and view class rosters is helpful for teachers. Staff get access to lists of their students with easy access to each child’s contact information. After setting up access to the staff portal on a mobile device, attendance can easily be entered. Should an emergency arise in class, a teacher can easily access a parent’s phone number without having to leave the classroom. As a dance teacher who works for a studio using Jackrabbit, being able to log attendance, contact parents, and fill out time sheets in one convenient location has made a big difference in streamlining my daily tasks.
