It’s open house season! We’re right in the middle of that busy stretch of the admission calendar when schools across the country are welcoming prospective students to their campuses.
It’s a critical point in the admission funnel — I can’t tell you how many times admission officers have told me that if they can just get a family to campus, they know their chances of yielding that student increases significantly.
Understanding this, a thread on our Blackbaud K-12 Community site caught my attention. How can a school “best leverage onBoard for our Open House?”
People chimed in and suggested promoting the parent experience with a “test account,” creating an event specific inquiry form that families who skipped the registration process can fill out when they arrive, and using official notes for documentation purposes.

But, let me leave you with this question — how have you used onBoard to compliment your open house event? Leave a comment below. We’d love to hear from you!
