From the CEO
Over the past few months, teachers have had to go to the extremes – digging deeper into their own pockets to continue educating students during the Covid-19 pandemic. When the new school year begins, their students will return with significant learning gaps, delayed academic progress and a host of new emotional dysfunctions. Teachers will need to be nimble to efficiently meet student needs in an unpredictable future. This is a defining moment for education leadership to recognize that empowering teachers with a classroom budget they can call their own is essential to a successful transition to the post-Covid school environment.

ClassWallet Ship-to-Home Helps Over 17,000 Teachers
When teachers had to shift teaching from the school building to their homes, ClassWallet immediately took action. We quickly implemented a feature that allowed teachers to change their shipping address from the school building to their home address. Over the past several weeks, 17,072 packages of learning materials were shipped to teachers’ houses allowing the teachers to continue educating students with all the resources they needed.
