K-12 education is stuck between a rock and a hard place. This is nothing new. We want the best for our children, and many times, education is the top-funded program in a state’s budget. But—states are scrutinizing these budgets and expecting districts to maintain current budgets or do more with less. Pressure is on as belt-tightening has become the norm.
Most schools have some form of digital document filing system, but this may be as elementary as a Windows directory, or a difficult-to-use student information system (SIS) with a clunky document attachment mechanism.
