Webinar Recording: Making Registration & Onboarding Easy

Remove the stress and manual slog from your start-of-year processes

For most schools, new year registration and onboarding remains one of its most resource-intensive and time-consuming processes. In fact, the average NYCDOE school spends $45,017 per year on the administrative costs associated with processing just the paper-based elements of student registration alone.

But, it doesn’t have to be like that. Watch Operoo’s free EdTech webinar series to find a better way forward. Discover how to digitize and automate your school’s most important registration and onboarding processes.

The Wasted Millions on NYCDOE
Student Registration

It’s time to digitize, streamline and automate

The tip of a very expensive iceberg

Traditional student registration takes 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 onboarding, or the many other activities associated with this often grueling process.
Then, there’s the year-round costs of inefficient paper-based student, staff and parent processes. Digitizing and automating school forms and workflows ensures you’re not wasting limited budgets on repetitive, manual tasks.


Beyond Registration & Onboarding

Eliminate paper and manage your school digitally

Operoo can be used to streamline all your routine operational tasks, with automated workflows for parents, staff, students and payments.
Bring your student registration process, and all your day-to-day school tasks and workflows, into the digital age.
