Hi! I joined SchoolDude in 2014 after leading the digital marketing team for a non-profit in northwest Indiana. Now in central North Carolina, I am excited to be bringing our clients tools and resources for success as a member of the SchoolDude marketing team. There is so much power in the Dude Community — knowledge, experience, and passion which I hope to bring to you, our clients, to help you achieve success.
You may have come across the
Q3 Dude Data Matters Index (either over at EdWeek or even here on the SchoolDude Community). If not, let me tell you… it's worth a read! The Index breaks down the data on what is breaking down at your school as the kids come back to school.
As you might expect, the new school year brings a spike in work requests for schools throughout the nation. You may have noticed your team dropping any summer projects to deal with the influx of emergency work requests the day teachers and students started filling classrooms again. And with good reason – repair requests shoot up 65% during the first few weeks of school as compared to summer.
Managing the balance between reactive and preventive work orders throughout the entire year is essential to operational success. Deciphering the numbers can help you make smart, data-driven decisions.
