ActivityHero helps districts, schools and activity vendors operate and manage out-of-school programs from start to finish:

  • Present available programs to families, including dates, hours, real-time availability
  • Collect family applications to determine program eligibility or import enrollments from Excel or Google Sheets
  • Make it easy for families to register for multiple programs with one account
  • Provide roster access and online attendance to teachers or vendors
  • Track attendance by school, class and other filters
  • Send session updates to enrolled families
  • Be prepared for audits and compliance

District CTOs say “it’s an after-school SIS” and see how it can handle community partners or payments that aren’t part of the typical SIS. A variety of workflows are available to serve the needs of your Out-of-School Time Programs, including:

  • Programs staffed by the district or by contractors/vendors
  • Free, sliding scale or paid programs
  • Single sign-on using Google, Apple, Clever, Classlink, GG4L or other

Districts looking to expand Out-of-School Time offerings can utilize ActivityHero’s extensive database of community partners:

  • Find additional third-party providers who meet OST requirements
  • Offer programs on-site at school or off-campus
