From the CEO
I hope you had a great summer. September was a WOW month for ClassWallet. New Mexico Public Education Department adopted ClassWallet for each of the state’s 23,000 classrooms. More districts in Florida and Alabama signed last month,and now approximately 15% of all classrooms in both states are using ClassWallet. Over 1,750 schools, 63,000 classrooms, across 15 states now use ClassWallet saving teachers countless hours to obtain and pay for resources, and significantly reducing the paper and effort needed to track those purchases by the finance offices.
From one of our newest customers in Northern California, we received this message from the Budget Director
“We are SO loving our new system!”
New Mexico Becomes First to Use ClassWallet StatewideEach year, the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) provides teachers with a classroom budget. Funding and tracking those purchases across 23,000 classrooms was incredibly burdensome. This year NMPED adopted ClassWallet, equipping each classroom with the initial class budget dollars through our platform. The result is the NMPED gets real time tracking and reconciliation of all transactions in a paperless, automated way, and teachers save countless hours and frustration in the process of obtaining needed resources.
Mobile and Birmingham Join ClassWalletMobile County Schools and Birmingham City Schools, the largest and 5th largest districts in Alabama, respectively, join several districts across Alabama to adopt ClassWallet. Baldwin County Schools, the 4th largest district in the State, is also a customer. Word of mouth from finance officers has spread. Now close to 15% of all classrooms in the state have ClassWallet to fulfill purchasing requests, and the business offices no longer have to manage receipts, purchase orders, invoices and checks to do so.
EdTech Digest CoolTool Award FinalistEach year EdTech Digest recognizes the best technologies serving schools. This year EdTech Digest recognized ClassWallet as one of the best emerging technologies.
