One benefit of Orah's Forms tool is a quick way to collect parental consent forms and save the information directly to Student Profiles.

This article will showcase an example of setting up a consent form to parents. Please note that the specific form used in this example is for demonstration purposes only and should not be used without the advice of a legal professional.

Step by step guide:

Step 2: From the Form Builder menu, click on the ‘+ New Form’ button and then select the 'Parents' form type.

Step 3: Give the form a name and description. Note that this name and description will be seen by parents when submitting the form.

Step 4: Make sure that ‘Student Information’ is selected and specify which groups of students you want to collect the parental consent for. In this case, ‘All Students’ has been selected.

Step 5: This is an example of a basic form that you can create where parents have to agree and sign for the new rules that you are implementing. You can click the ‘Preview’ button to see what the form will look like to parents.

Step 6: Create a campaign so that an email will be sent to the students’ parents who have connected Orah accounts. You can write a custom message and attach any additional files within that email for their reference.

Step 7: Set the time and date that you want the email to be sent to parents and create any reminders that you want to be sent if they have not responded to the initial email.

Step 8: In the last section, decide who should have access to these parental consents. ‘All Staff’ will have access to the records in the example below.
