A: To ensure a successful implementation, we recommend schools develop a project team and
adopt a two-phase approach. Initially, the project team should include all key stakeholders
and a clearly defined Project Leader who will be responsible for the project. In phase one,
these stakeholders may include, but should not be limited to, those individuals who will be
responsible for running Schoolbox at your school.
Phase One (Strategic):
Phase Two (Operational):
We recommend that all schools’ staff/committees be involved in managing information for
their departments, such as communications to relevant staff, students and parents,
curriculum resources, learning and assessment, and system administration.
A: Yes, even though the students in these lower year levels will not be accessing the platform,
their parents and teachers will need access and be using Schoolbox.
A: You must purchase a licence for all students enrolled in the school. If staff and parents of
students who will not be using Schoolbox also don't access the platform, then we may allow
the purchase of a Schoolbox licence for a subset of your entire school, on a case-by-case basis.
A: We encourage schools to estimate the total number of students predicted for the entire school
year and purchase an additional block of 20 licences to account for any additions that may
occur during the contract period (typically 12 months). This will provide a buffer to ensure
you can add students as required.
A: If this is the case, you will need to contact your account manager. Increases will result in
purchasing an additional block of 20 licences. If student numbers have decreased, credit
options can be arranged.
A: When you purchase SaaS software, there are additional services that come with the software
and are taken into account for the licence fee. Although students may not begin using the
platform right away, we will begin to initiate those services to ensure that from day one, we:
As soon as we provision the instance, we start to support it from day one so that the service
can begin when you need it.
A: The Schoolbox mobile app is sold separately by our partner Digistorm Education. You can contact them through their website. You need the Schoolbox "Pro" or “Elite” plan license to enable the integration between the platform and the app.
A: Depending on your integration requirements and the availability of project team members, from
contract return, the time to complete the Schoolbox installation project varies.
We consult with each school to understand your unique goals and timelines to establish a project
framework that will work for everyone.
Alaress can have the server instance installed and up-and-running shortly after the Agreed
Project Commencement Date (APCD).
We generally allow 3–4 months after the contracts have been signed and returned to complete
the Schoolbox installation project.
This allows time for both Alaress and the school to complete all of the required configurations
and be adequately prepared to launch a pilot of Schoolbox.

A: Ask your existing software vendor what formats your data can export to from their system, then
communicate that to our team. If your data format is compatible with Schoolbox, we will assist
you in importing it into our system.
