Through this form, you can establish clear communication between the school, students, and their parents. So, permission slips are a must for any event you organize in your school or outside.

These days, school authorities and educational institutions are shifting their interest to digital permission slips. The traditional way of seeking consent from parents has many challenges. Some of the common problems with the traditional permission slips are:
Schools send these permission slips to parents and need to ensure that they receive the form. Generally, students forget to give these consent forms to their parents, and miscommunication happens.
Another challenge is that parents need to fill out the form properly and sign it. The whole process takes time because it needs manual checking.
Paper permission slips have storing issues also. They tend to get lost easily in the bundle of papers. So, they need maintenance.
To solve these problems, digital consent forms seem to be the right choice. These forms are easy to create and distribute. A school can create many such consent forms for various purposes. School authority sends these forms directly to parents. So, parents receive these forms on time. Schools provide access to parents on a secured portal where parents fill in important details and submit them accordingly. With the digital permission slip, there is less chance of making mistakes in adding information.
Collecting paper forms are also very challenging because school authorities need to give reminders to parents about submitting them. With this digital solution, it is not required. Parents can fill up the form digitally at their convenience.
