Did you know that small schools make up 85% of America’s schools?
Occasionally we hear those of you who fall into this category say,
“We’re too small to leverage SchoolDude”, but we’re here to tell you today,
that you’re not too small. SchoolDude
delivers a tremendous value to over 2,100 “small schools” across the nation; in
fact some of our greatest success stories are from schools with as few as 50

K-12 survey with TechValidate and polled our client base and confirmed what we
already believed and stood by…. that
small schools, aren’t too small for SchoolDude. We’re passionate about small
institutions because we understand the challenges you’re facing day in and day
out and while we know we can’t add extra hours to the day, we can provide you

What could those cost
savings mean to your small school? New
smartboards, new playground equipment, or maybe even a new teacher?
