From the CEO
This is a busy time of year at ClassWallet as the school year winds down. We’re helping teachers get the resources they need before end of year deadlines while assisting administrators get detailed year end spending reports for their accounting and audits. We also have been on the road presenting how ClassWallet solves the problem of school procurement, streamlines operations and saves invaluable time for everyone in the district. We are in 1,200 schools across 14 states and it is exciting to see our vision of improving funding for teachers and schools become a reality.
