Administrative Cost Reimbursement (ACR) is a program funded by the state of Ohio that reimburses non-public elementary and high schools for having employees perform a series of mandated activities. ACR Consultants is a company that collects data from schools that contains the amount of time each teacher spent on any of the mandated activities. The president of ACR Consultants is a neighbor and longtime family friend. Currently, to collect the time data, the company goes to each school it services and gives each teacher a large paper spreadsheet for them to fill in with the amount of time they spend on each activity. The company then collects those sheets at the end of each quarter and manually enters the data into a system it uses to calculate how much reimbursement the state of Ohio owes each school. The goal of my project is to eliminate the need for the company to use the paper spreadsheets by creating a website that teachers can log into and enter the data themselves. The site will be programmed with an Angular 4 front end tied to a DotNet Core backend storing the data in a Microsoft SQL Server instance.
