Superintendent for Maury County School District in Tennessee, Dr Christopher Marczak, embraces the 24/7 nature of his job. He’s always thinking about better ways to connect Maury County’s school communities and improve access to education for its 13,000+ students across its 21 schools. Dr Marczak looks for innovative, technology-driven solutions to achieve those outcomes.
In 2017, he partnered with CareMonkey and its School Productivity and Process Automation Platform as part of the district's Digital Integration Plan for Learning on Mobile and Accessibility (DIPLOMA). This enabled Maury County to digitize the distribution and collection of permission slips for its district-wide student laptop program, eliminating 36,000 paper forms from just one process – and a lot of stress and inefficiency – for parents and school staff alike. Since then, the CareMonkey - Maury County partnership has deepened, enabling the district to digitize and streamline other day-to-day tasks and workflows in a consistent manner across its schools.
When the Coronavirus Crisis hit, Dr Marczak knew Maury County’s traditional paper-based registration process for incoming Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten students wasn’t viable. Instead, he pushed CareMonkey to develop an industry leading, 100 percent digital, solution that would make Pre-K - K registration in Maury County a breeze – throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
