YellowFolder encourages a different approach.
Think of your paper problem like a leaky roof. If you don't patch the hole in the roof, emptying the bucket used to catch the water does little good. It will simply fill again. If your school doesn't learn to go paperless, your paper records will build right back up. YellowFolder encourages school systems to utilize the online system immediately for all new (or "Day Forward") records and convert them - once and for all. You can transition those existing file rooms to staff lounges, work spaces, etc.
