Permission Click continues to amaze in its ability to remove extra work from our teachers and free up support staff from collecting and processing field trip forms and other paperwork.

Dr. Robert DillonDirector of Technology and Innovation, Affton School District

Permission Click has worked so well, and I have received numerous recommendations, which has allowed us to provide support even during this season of “distance.” I have you to thank for that! Permission Click has been enlightening and will now be our mode of referrals from here on out. Thank you so much for taking the time to set this up and help me with this. Lives are being impacted, and it started with a “click.”

Kevin MillerHigh School Principal, Clovis Unified School District

Permission Click saves our teachers the time it used to take them to create, print/distribute, chase down, and track permission slips. Teachers are able to fill out a pre-built template and immediately send the permission slip link to parents. Parents are busy. Whether at home, at a sports practice, or other after-school obligations; parents can complete and return a permission slip from any device. We no longer have students losing permission slips or asking for extra copies and the turnaround from creation to completion is quick.

There's no comparison! I'm no longer drowning in paperwork!

Frequently asked questions

How much does Permission Click cost?

Permission Click is an affordable solution that will help manage your entire school. Starting as low as $1 per student, you will more than recover your investment just with the cost of paper saved. However, the return on investment goes much further than that as you’ll have newly found administrative time that your staff can reinvest in helping improve educational outcomes. Additionally, you’ll be helping minimize risk and liability footprint.
