According to educationdata.org, despite a slowing birth-rate, “US schools are still growing” across the board, with both individual educational professionals and school district planners needing to adapt. Across all year levels, US school enrolments grew from 47,204,000 students in the year 2000, to approximately 50,438,000 in 2015. By 2027, it’s estimated that 52,059,000 students will be participating in the US school system.
“Given the nature of considerable teacher shortages in many states across the country”, schools at both a district and individual level need to become as efficient as possible. This includes consolidating operational workflows and processes across the school — and even between multi-school networks — from student enrolments, to finance, HR and parent communication.
