The initial set up is free and SchoolDocs then charges an annual subscription fee. Based on the average fee, SchoolDocs equates to the cost of just four relief teaching days per year.
The annual subscription fee is determined by the roll size of your school:

Paper-based documentation costs money - in photocopying, folders, surveys, and administration time controlling the documents - even if the board is writing the policies for free. Very often, the school is still not confident that their policies and procedures are up-to-date, accurate, and reflecting the latest requirements - and they can't access them online.
If the principal or senior management are researching, word-smithing, and updating content, the cost is hard to estimate - but if done to a high standard would have to amount to a minimum of two to four hours per month, or over $2,000 of a principal's time. One estimate is that the true cost to a school of performing these tasks properly is $10,000 per year, taking into account the value of trustee, principal, and staff time, and printing and distribution costs. The costs of poorly considered and out-of-date policies and procedures may be even greater.
By implementing SchoolDocs at your school, you are freeing the principal and senior management team to focus on leading learning, you are freeing trustees to focus on governance, and you are receiving a very robust, up to date and widely reviewed set of online policies and procedures.
