What Exactly is SchoolRiver APX?
SchoolRiver APX transfers or automates many of the coding, archiving processes related to K-12 school attendance, freeing staff and teachers to focus more of their energy on higher value tasks that truly improve educational outcomes.
Streamlines attendance coding and archiving processes
Significantly strengthening discrepancy and attendance management functions by automatically synchronizing with your Aeries® SIS (Student Information System), SchoolRiver's APX Attendance platform often reduces time spent on certain data processing tasks by 75-90%.
Frees staff to focus on higher-value-added activities
Removing many coding and archiving functions typical of attendance and discrepancy management, various APX modules help staff shift their focus from mundane tasks to higher value-added activities and improved interactions with students, parents and guardians.
Increases accuracy and auditability of attendance data
Keeping critical verification responsibilities firmly in the hands of teachers and staff, and placing non-critical coding tasks in the hands of students, parents and guardians, SchoolRiver's APX platform provides time- and date-stamped records to withstand the most rigorous ADA auditing processes.

Data is automatically uploaded into Aeries, freeing staff from coding and archiving tasks to do higher-value-added work.
After signature verification by office staff, all previously-entered data (embedded in QR code) is automatically uploaded into Aeries, freeing staff from coding and archiving tasks.
Teachers still do a physical count to verify accuracy prior to uploading data into Aeries.
All tardy-related data is directly uploaded into Aeries for use by staff responsible for detentions.
