The tip of a very expensive iceberg
Traditional, resource-intensive student registration take hours to complete, sheet after sheet of paper, and a huge team of teachers and administrators, which all costs money. Estimates indicate that NYCDOE schools spend a staggering $84 million on the administrative costs associated with processing just the paper-based elements of student registration applications each year.
But, this is just the tip of a very expensive iceberg. We have not included costs that derive from chasing down child information from parents, communicating with pre-registered families, manual data entry and management, student on-boarding, or the many other activities associated with the registration process.
Then, there’s the year-round costs of inefficient paper-based student, staff and parent processes. Digitising and automating school forms and workflows ensures you’re not wasting limited budgets on repetitive, manual tasks.
