NAES Launches Online Database Update Process

New York, NY—The National Association of Episcopal Schools is pleased to announce the launch of its new online database update process, which can be accessed through a link on the Association’s website. This process, which replaces the paper "Annual Database Update Form" that had been sent annually to every school, is open from June 1–July 31, 2011.

Log in credentials and directions for completing the process were mailed to each school’s "Directory Contact" (in most cases the head of school) during the week of May 23. If your school did not receive this mailing, or it was sent to the wrong person at your school, please contact David Schnabel immediately at 800.334.7626, ext. 6182, or

About the New Process

The online update process, which is connected directly to the NAES datase, is divided into two sections.

Company Demographics
Each June, schools will be asked to provide demographic information and data for the school year ending that June 30 (e.g. June 2011 form asks about the 2010-2011 school year). To insure data integrity, only authorized school personnel will be able to access the form. This part of the process will ask the school to:

  • Review and edit basic information about your program and the grades served.
  • Provide student demographic and financial aid information.
  • Supply staff and faculty demographic and benefits information.

This form allows you to complete the process in one session or, if need be, begin the process, stop, and then complete it at a later time.

In 2011, this form will be available from June 1 through July 31. In future years the form will be available only during the month of June.

Organization Profile Management
In order for NAES to maintain accurate contact lists at every school, schools must complete this portion of the process each June. Schools will be asked to:

  • Check and edit the school’s address, website URL, etc.
  • Update the staff, faculty, and trustee roster for the school year beginning July 1.
  • Edit information about the school’s sponsoring organization.

Please note that this section will be available year-round to authorized school personnel for update and correction at a later date should the need arise.

A copy of the directions sent to all schools is available below.

Help and Feedback

The NAES database structure reflects the complex organizational and personal relationships within the membership. Working with our online services partner Matrix Group International, we have tried to make our online update process as straightforward as possible and to provide help text and directions as necessary. If you need assistance or would like to offer feedback, please contact David Schnabel at 800.334.7626, ext. 6182, or He’ll be glad to assist you.

Thank you for completing the update process.
