BYOC Referral Program

You are our best sales staff.  There is nothing we enjoy more than hearing from a new district that they heard about us from one of our existing clients.  Like any company, continually adding new districts is key to our success.  As such, we would like to reward you, our best sales staff.  For any new district referred by you that joins the BYOC network, we will reduce your district’s next renewal by $250.  There is no limit on the number of districts you can refer.

In order to qualify as a referral, the new district must inform us of who referred them prior to being configured. Each new district can only be referred by one existing district.

Thanks in advance for your kind words, we are constantly humbled when we get your feedback.

Whether you've seen us before or are completely new to the product, we invite you to attend one of our upcoming webinars and find out what everyone is talking about.  School Software Group continues to evolve and has grown into a leading Curriculum Management for schools. 

Curriculum management is a large undertaking for school districts. Subjects each have their own manuals and each course has specific criteria to be met. Many districts could fill bookcases with their curriculum guides. But in order to find, compare or analyze curriculum, a team of educators would have to dust off the manuals and go through each handbook individually. Short on manpower and wanting to find a more efficient way to organize curriculum, David Miller, Coordinator for Assessment & Library Services in the Pattonville (MO) School District, began looking for alternatives to this rusty, dusty routine. The Pattonville Success Story
