Each jmc building has online family registration settings designed to tailor the Online Registration process specifically for that building. Ask for basic student information, emergency contact data, custom questions, and even health related questions. In jmc Office navigate to jmc Family > Online Registration > Setup > Configuration Options to get started choosing which data to ask families for.

Step One: Click the "Click to expand (your school name) Settings" link to view all building online registration settings.

Step Two: Click the "Click to expand Family Access Settings" link to view all building family access online registration settings.

Step Three: Place a checkmark in the “Allow Emergency Contact Edits” checkbox to allow families to enter new emergency contacts and edit existing emergency contact information.

Step Four: Place a checkmark in the “Allow New Student Addition” checkbox to allow families to enter demographic information about students who are new to the school.

Helpful Tip: This is a great tool to use during kindergarten roundup to allow families to enter their new kindergarten student information. jmc recommends leaving it unchecked during the summer to avoid families reentering information for their students already enrolled at your school.

Step Five: Place a checkmark in the “Allow Health Registration” checkbox to allow families to answer health custom field questions for each of their students.

Step Six: Click the "Click to expand General Data Settings" link to view all building general data online registration settings.

Step Seven: Place a checkmark in the “Include Inactive Students” checkbox to allow families the ability to edit demographic information for students who are not currently enrolled in the school.

Fun Fact: Placing a checkmark means a family can still see their student's information, even if they are not active in the school. Most schools leave it unchecked, but do what is best for your school!

Step Eight: Choose the student information families can edit or view from the "General Data" box by using the appropriate drop-down list.

Fun Fact: You can also hide information you do not want families to see.
