Meredith Dunn

Blackbaud Solutions Help Support Meredith-Dunn School's Mission of Focusing on the Individual Student

The mission of Meredith-Dunn School is to provide prescriptive instruction in a nurturing environment designed to empower students (in grades 1 – 8) who learn differently in becoming accomplished learners and resilient individuals. Meredith-Dunn School supports students having learning differences or learning disabilities such as: auditory processing disorder, dyslexia, ADD, language based differences, and mild sensory integration disorders. The School helps students gain the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in class and in life.

Challenge

  • Meredith-Dunn needed to better understand its students and families. School administrators desired the ability to capture and share the information such as change of address, information on students' learning disabilities, written evaluations, and school demographics in one database.
  • Because of the School's small size and unique student population, one of the greatest challenges was communicating effectively with students' families and other school supporters.
  • Administrators also needed a single source of information that was readily accessible and could facilitate in creating reports.

Solution

  • Meredith-Dunn chose Blackbaud for Small SchoolsTM — which includes Registrar's OfficeTM, Faculty Access for the WebTM, and NetClassroomTM. It is an affordable, complete student information system that helps administrators work quickly, accurately, and efficiently.
  • Blackbaud for Small Schools is also a web-delivered solution and relieves the need for IT support, which was a perfect fit for Meredith-Dunn.
  • One of the major factors in the School's decision to deploy Blackbaud for Small Schools was its ability to easily provide administrators with the information they need.

Results

  • Centralized student information. Administrators at Meredith-Dunn have been able to save time, improve processes, and enhance data accuracy and flow throughout their offices. The systems have been very user-friendly and the transition was smooth.
  • Streamlined, online processes. With the help of Faculty Access Web, teachers can go to online to get up-to-date information on students. Teachers can also enter attendance in their classrooms, reducing administrative work for the main office.
  • Improved communication. Blackbaud has helped the school achieve a better view of each student and improve overall communication. This supports the school's mission of focusing on the individual student and providing personalized attention.
