How It Works

Teachers can create & customize field trips, school dances, club meetings, sports games, and more - all online. Then they send parents the invites with permission slip & e-payment in tow.

We integrate with PowerSchool and Skyward, so if your school uses either then you don’t have to worry about data privacy or manual uploads. For other schools, we offer facilitated manual uploads through one of our partners, DataZone, that takes the pain out of data on-boarding.

  • FERPA compliant.
  • Access to student, teacher, and class info.
  • Control your own data privacy.

Features

Painless Payments

Parents can pay for field trips & activities through Stripe.Keep parents from running to the bank and don’t run the risk of students losing cash. Never fear, payments are here.

Teacher Time

Without having to burn class time on collecting forms, answering questions, or writing receipts, faculty have more time for prep periods, for tutoring, and for instruction.

Parent-Teacher Hotline

Reaching out to parents is simple & streamlined with Activity Assist's automatic communication system. Now, parents can ask teachers questions directly. No more, “I forgot my slip at home.”

Modern Clipboard

On the day of the activity, chaperones can take attendance, identify students with allergies or health concerns, and call emergency contacts with a simple touch - thanks to our mobile app.

Control Center

Teachers track all permission slips & payments without having to handle hundreds of dollars in cash, chase down students for forms, or go deposit checks at the bank. Now, you can refresh the page. Abracadabra.

Seamless Integration

School administrators can share their data quickly and securelythrough DataZone, which works with PowerSchool and Skyward to keep ourrecords up to date.
