OST (Out of School Time) ProgramAdvance
OST ProgramAdvance is the ideal tool to manage information about every aspect of your program.
From participant performance to emergency contact records to required documentation, your organization manages an unimaginable volume of data. That information is probably stored in various spreadsheets, documents, and file cabinets. OST ProgramAdvance makes it easy to consolidate all of that information into one convenient system, providing easy answers to any questions you have about your program's operations
OST ProgramAdvance makes it simple to assign participants to programs, schedule activities, and enter attendance. You can record participants as "present," "excused," or "unexcused," and enter notes to explain their absences or provide any other information. With OST ProgramAdvance, in addition to attendance, you can track participants on any other daily metrics such as "punctual," "prepared," "engaged," etc.
Once participant attendance has been entered, it populates throughout the system. So after you enter participant attendance, you can instantly see attendance history by individual/group by date, school year, or any other period of time.
Set up login alerts to be notified automatically that you have attendance records to enter when you log in to the system.
Track Academic Performance
Enter participants' report cards and standardized test scores into ProgramAdvance, and you can gauge the impact your program is having on their academic performance. Use ProgramAdvance to identify areas in which further academic intervention would be helpful. When students in your program apply for selective middle schools, high schools, or colleges, you will be able to see their full academic history at a glance to help them identify appropriate schools.
OST ProgramAdvance also makes it easy to view academic performance by program cohort or by the schools the students attend.
