A Major System and Powerful Algorithm for School Choice

Automation to Improve Service, Drive Down Costs

The streamlined automated processes significantly reduce operating costs, while the enhanced algorithms enable a faster, more accurate matching process. The Brookings Institute hailed the program as one of the best school choice systems in the nation.

 

Situation

We were tapped by a prime contractor to provide technology to enhance the school choice program for a vast metropolitan school district.

 

Solution

We conducted hundreds of hours of discovery with the school system’s subject matter experts to identify the current business processes used by the school system’s many offices. We then suggested elegant and effective approaches to improve their processes. We created hundreds of wireframes and screenshot mockups to illustrate the proposed system’s functionality and to spark discussions.

Based on a review of the appropriate economics and mathematics literature, we crafted an algorithm based on the Gale Shapely matching process, which is used for medical residency matching, and incorporated several refinements from academia and several enhancements of our own. The system was designed to accommodate many school selection method variations through an intuitive interface that offers powerful Boolean logic capabilities.

We then created the software that manages this process — two Web applications comprising hundreds of interfaces, that accommodate thousands of internal school system users and millions of parents, many of whom will wait until the last minute and use the system simultaneously.
