We have many families who apply for more than one child. Therefore, in the sibling section of the application form we need to have the following fields added:
Applying to ‘name of school?’ Drop down box – yes/no
If yes which grade? Drop down box JK, K, 1, 2, etc.
By adding these fields we will be able to include this information on work lists/lists and export on to spreadsheets.
Having these fields is imperative for us. When reviewing applications, whether or not an applicant has a sibling applying can have a bearing on the decision. Currently admissions staff are manually making a note of sibling applications but there is margin for error when there are so many applications.
