Registration has been a method that has been utilized not just at Samspra, but in good school management policies throughout.
It is important for the school to make sure all students are registered and the school has accurate information related to students: where they live, phone numbers, emergency contact, allergy/ medical information, and other important information that the school requires for our records.
Also, the school has to know that students and parents agree to our policy, guidelines etc,, This is especially important with online classes.
