How does it help?

StudentLife is a constantly-evolving suite of integrated, task-specific modules designed to add efficiencies, real-time automation, and lend a helping hand for the day-to-day challenges of day school administrators and staff. Each module has a job to do, and they all work in perfect harmony to provide a seamless solution.

First Response –

Designed to enable administrators to address everything from minor everyday incidents to large-scale emergencies, this module provides enhanced situational awareness of student locations, real-time chat with students, and confirmation of student status, allowing selective, or wide-scale alerts and communication with parents, students, and staff.

Custom SURVEYS/Forms –

Create, edit, and manage customized intuitive forms designed for students and parents. Generate permission forms for activities, waivers for field trips, or even create short surveys about the things that matter to students and staff on your campus. Custom Surveys/Forms are being used by schools around the world to survey students and staff, address COVID-19 protocols and quickly assess any symptomatic conditions before students and staff arrive to school.

Attendance Log –

StudentLife tracks and monitors attendance at assemblies, lunch, and during school-related events in real-time, with multiple staff accountability for students across the campus.


Control, record, and manage visits to campus, with key information collection, ID Management, reason for visit, and creation of a virtual visitor ID card.

Student Tracker –

Track and report student movements in, out, and around your school, and integrates that data with all other relevant modules within the StudentLife system. Movement transactions and student monitoring can be created manually or electronically and staff can know simply by checking a StudentLife dashboard screen where any or all students are in real-time and when they are due back.

Event Coordinator –

A powerful tool to replace your Google Forms, clipboards, or paper sign-ups for all of your student activities and events. This module assists your staff with managing trips, excursions, away games, meetings, special events, etc. StudentLife simplifies and streamlines the process for all involved.

Campus Chat –

Integrated real-time, secure chat capability between student and teacher. All data stays within the StudentLife system and administration has permission-based access to view and report chat logs.
