Districts Across the U.S. Adopt ClassWallet


Fourth Largest School District and An Entire State Adopt ClassWallet

ClassWallet is saving time for the school business office and streamlining the procurement workflow for districts throughout the United States.  63,000 teachers and principals in 2,000 schools use ClassWallet to automate processes for transactions, empowering business offices to reallocate precious resources from tracking and reconciling small dollar transactions to more impactful work.

ClassWallet began after founder, Jamie Rosenberg, and his team raised over $25 million for teachers in 30% of schools, improving the learning environment for 3.5 million students, with the company Adopt-A-Classroom, which Jamie started as well.   Through this venture, Jamie gained first hand exposure to the challenges schools face in efficiently fulfilling school-based purchases, which are so critical to meeting student needs.

Below are examples of how ClassWallet helps to replace the manual, time-intensive tasks of collecting receipts, reconciling invoices, and making payments by digitizing and automating processes.

ClassWallet in New Mexico

Each year, the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) provides teachers with a classroom budget.  Funding and tracking those purchases across 23,000 classrooms has been incredibly burdensome.  This year NMPED adopted ClassWallet, equipping each classroom with the initial class budget dollars through the 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.

ClassWallet in Alabama

Mobile 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 is also starting to spread.  Now 13% 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.

ClassWallet in Florida

Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is the 4th largest school district in the United States.  You can imagine the overhead expense of tracking purchases, managing reimbursements and collecting receipts for 18,000 teachers. To reduce costs, M-DCPS chose ClassWallet to allocate and manage procurement for a portion of its budget designated for classroom resources.  Other districts in Florida that use ClassWallet include Martin County, Polk County, Putnam County and Flagler County.  15% of all Florida classrooms now have a ClassWallet account.

Set up a time to see how ClassWallet can help your district save time to focus on more important matters than receipt collection, reconciliation, reimbursement and payment.
