Back to School Refresher!

July 24, 2017 | By |

With the start of school just around the corner, we thought we would quickly highlight the main features of Epicenter. If there is a feature you are not using and would like to learn more about, or you just want a refresher before the school bell rings, contact us and we would be happy to work with you to show you how to take advantage of our time-saving features!


Document Management
Whether you’re looking for a piece of paper that was stored across the hall or across the state, Epicenter streamlines document management by providing a simple system to easily collect, organize, and track documents. Its powerful search engine also allows you to find, retrieve, and share documents anywhere, anytime, and anyplace.


Compliance & Workflow
Your job is to help provide the best education possible for your kids, not to chase documents, repeat directions, and monitor reports. Epicenter streamlines and automates these functions, freeing you up to spend more time on your core mission.

For example, Epicenter offers a shared calendar. Using this feature, you and your team will be automatically notified what is due and when, and who is responsible. Epicenter ensures submissions get routed to the right people for review and approval, and provides a digital paper trail to prove it.


Board Governance
Simplify board preparations and equip your board with the data and documents they need to govern wisely. Each time the board meets, board members and management must perform pre- and post-meeting tasks. For example, they might publish an advance public notice of the meeting, assemble and distribute a meeting packet, and later post any approved documents. Epicenter makes these tasks simple and routine.

Epicenter also displays board member profiles in an easy-to-use interface. Photos, titles, terms, member-related documents — they’re all there! You can even store and retrieve information on prospective candidates for the board.


Charter Life Cycle
Epicenter provides authorizers with an aligned, seamless, and integrated way to manage each stage of a school: application for a charter, start-up, operations, reauthorization, and sometimes even closure. Each stage imposes fresh demands. With Epicenter, you don’t need new software to navigate each stage of the school life cycle.


If you have any questions about Epicenter or want to learn more about any function, contact us at (855) 889-1624 and we would be happy to show you how Epicenter can make your life easier and more efficient.

Did you know?

Did you know that there is a “Board Packet” feature found in the overview tab of Board Center?  This feature makes it easy to access materials from previous meetings. When enabled by a System Administrator, the Board Packet area allows board members – and others with access to the Board Center – to view and download all of the board documents for a particular board meeting that are being collected in Epicenter.  The complete set of documents from a board meeting can be quickly downloaded as a zip file or combined into a single pdf.
