Imagine the embarrassment a student would feel, not to mention frustration, if they wait in line for 40 minutes to buy their tickets to graduation. Only when they get to the front of the line, they are turned away because of outstanding student fees.
Or as a parent, perhaps you weren’t thrilled with having to leave work to pay school fees. Only to hear that fees are going up again so the district can make up a shortfall in funding — essentially making you pay for someone else’s child that hasn’t paid their fees.
Your school policy prohibits them from attending graduation until those fees are paid up so the student is sent away, either to a cash machine, their parents or perhaps after this negative experience they decide not to be part of grad at all.
Even the most stoic business manager would be a little emotional about this scenario, wouldn’t they?
This scenario could be avoided when using InviteRight. We can show you how to use InviteRight to collect those fees at the beginning of the year instead of having your office staff chase them at the end of the year.
OK, your interest is piqued. How does this work?
- We create your free collection form and link it to your school website
- Students or parents pay for textbooks, bus passes and rentals then pick their lockers
- Monitor collect fees and generate reports through InviteRight
- Students are emailed a receipt with a locker number and material list
- Collect fees at the beginning of the year or before school begins, saving teachers a bunch of after school time
There’s a little more to the process than what I’ve listed but you get the idea. If you want to capture some of that outstanding money and give yourselves more accurate budgeting, then call us (1-866-811-3144) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a short demonstration.
Another aspect of InviteRight is that you have such great control over your grad ticket sales. For instance, if your school is using InviteRight to sell tickets to graduation then you can collect fees in the spring, when grad tickets go on sale, or give credits to a student for fundraising.
I love it when things are simple, don’t you?
