In Rhode Island, parents and school administrators saved hundreds of hours on pre-Kindergarten registration thanks to Golden Ticket, a tool made by their fellowship team.
We made the pre-Kindergarten application process electronic so parents only have to fill out one form, even if they entered four lotteries. And we took away all the data entry that the schools had to do, saving 800 hours for parents and administrators. School administrators cried, "woo-hoo!" Not only that — Golden Ticket was included in a federal grant application to expand pre-K offerings, and they won the grant!
