Why isn't MySchoolAnywhere free?
There's an old saying "If you're not paying for a product, then YOU are the product". Any company offering a free service needs to generate a profit at some point, so they will have to either go out of business or monetize their customers somehow (e.g. selling your data to advertisers).
We started MySchoolAnywhere to help you manage all the headaches and pains that comes with running a volunteer parent organization. You are our customer - not our product. We will never sell your data (it's in our Terms of Service) or show you or your parents ads. Our support team works 7 days a week if you have any questions or problems.
We continually work to improve our products and services and offer free support and weekly web classes taught by folks who've been in your shoes. To ensure 24 / 7 uptime and security is not cheap and requires staff and equipment. We simply want to help you, and in the process to provide you with much more value than our cost.
(BTW - we are privately owned and don't have investors we need to report to either.)
