Is your school suffering from a lack of funding or constant complaints from parents? We can help minimize the panic by reducing expenses and improving workflow. We currently work with school districts and individual academies in New Mexico.
We take a comprehensive look at your budget by breaking down each department one by one. As each line item is evaluated, we’ll work with you to find or create less expensive alternatives to processes and operational expenses. Then we formulate a plan and assist you with execution.
Think of your school as a service provider; your goal is to provide the best possible education (your service) to your students. Service design starts with an academic service strategy. When evaluating your service blueprint, we apply lean thinking which records each step in the flowchart and constructs a separate value-stream map. Your processes can be analyzed for time reductions to reduce non-value added steps. Changes are made to reduce time and waste in your processes.
Operational Expenses (OPEX) can add up quickly, leaving you little room to use available funds on other necessities. Whether it’s food for the cafeteria, information technology, or office supplies, GRW can break down your expenses and discover less expensive alternatives that will maximize your profit margin.
A lot of money can be found in the cafeteria. We analyze and train all of “The 7 Steps of Food Cost” including: ordering, receiving, storing, issuing, preparation, cooking, and serving. Additionally, we can break down your recipes to determine actual cost percentages, and help you discover alternative (less expensive) ingredients while still maintaining a healthy balance of nutrition. Oh, and we also do food safety courses and certifications. Click here for more information.
When was the last time you updated your employee policy handbook? Does it include your most recent dress code? Has it been reviewed for labor laws? Has your faculty signed off on it? We can help you create a detailed policy handbook that will protect you from certain liabilities.
Does your staff actually know what their responsibilities are? Are there tasks that your teachers don’t currently follow due to a lack of instructions? We develop professional training manuals that will drastically improve consistency within your educational institution. And guess what? We can do the technical writing, editing, photography, formatting, graphic design, and publishing for you.
Just about every school has a website now-a-days, but does yours provide your staff with an online training portal for faculty? How about an e-Learning platform for your students? Do parents have the ability to sign up as volunteers for your events? Can parents voice their concerns directly from your site? Can parents look up bus routes? Our websites are designed for functionality, and can be developed for a fraction of the cost of our competition.
We’ll analyze your administrative processes, and either recommend or develop the software you need to get more things done in less time. We can save the average school upwards of 40% of their time spent on the computer. Just ask us how!
