I had the opportunity to become a member of the “Dude family” almost a year ago and today I’m proudly focused on smalls schools as a part of the Marketing team. My job is to educate small schools on the benefits of a work order and facilities usage software solution and on how it will improve the learning environment. I enjoy helping small schools feel confident in their decision to implement SchoolDude.
Small schools and small businesses are the pillars of a community. Both types of organizations have a way of not only bringing people together, but giving back to the community. I think you’ll find it interesting to see how much these two organizations have in common and how important they are to your community.
Here are 3 traits small schools and businesses have in common.
Being the hub of community activity and a close knit family-oriented institution is a big obligation. For these reasons, small schools, like small businesses, take this obligation seriously and seem to have a more vested interest in their surroundings. Maybe because they are so close to leadership, or they take pride in owning some of the decisions, or maybe because they feel like they are looking out for family and friends.
Furthermore, small schools are vital to the community just like small businesses are to the economy and the proof is in the pudding.
Small Schools Double Down on Preventive Maintenance
According to our data, small schools do more than double the preventive maintenance work orders of medium and large schools and recover more costs from events that can go back into student programs and facility improvement, despite juggling more responsibility.
