Schoolworx - Core provides access to school and assessment calendars, resource booking, SMS messaging, email, class lists and timetable information. This module is designed to connect to external resources such as enrolment systems, timetable programs, SMS text messaging systems and Email systems to provide a rich integrated workspace for staff to manage day-to-day activities within their schools.
The Core provides an extensive platform to bring together a wide range of elements of school operations. This involves integrating data from enrolment systems, sharing resources, accessing calendars provided by Schoolworx (and/or external calendars such as Google or Outlook), providing student lists for classes and year level cohorts, and in high schools, providing integration with timetable data to display staff, student, class and room timetables.
Behind the scene, Schoolworx enables a wide range of data to be seamlessly moved around the system using a high performance integration engine that manages all data in and out of the system. Connection to SMS text messaging allows schools to send a variety of messages to parents such as attendance issues, emergency notifications, medical concerns or simply general broadcast style messages. Emails can be sent from within Schoolworx to parents and students using information provided by a variety sources such as enrolment data. Support is provided for SIF and LISS standards that enables full integration with the new systems that now appear in the educational space.
