Designed by a classroom teacher who hates admin
You choose Milk because you want to reduce staff workload, save the school budget, boost student achievement and engage parents
Reduce a teacher’s administration by 2 hours a week and save your school budget thousands
Need to reduce teacher administration?
Teachers spend at least 6 minutes on every lesson they teach doing any of the following:
- Chasing students
- Compiling messages for registers
- Duplicating assessment data
- Gathering evidence
- Enforcing homework
- Liaising with parents.
Considering the average full-time teacher teaches 22 lessons a week, that’s 120 extra minutes (2 hours) of administration time every week Milk could save you.
A high school with 60 teachers could save 4800 man hours a year.
Need your school budget to go further?
