COSTA MESA — Registration will be easier and quicker next year for middle and high school students, thanks to an expansion of a pilot online registration system.
The Newport-Mesa Unified School District school board this week unanimously approved implementing an online registration and management software program, "K-12 Online," at all secondary schools in 2012-13.
The program allows parents to fill out everything from emergency cards to health surveys and buy items before school starts.
"In short, it not only met expectations, it far exceeded them," said George Knights, director of K-12 assessment. "It was our golden program of the fall."
