CARY, N.C. & WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, SchoolDude and the National Business Officers Association (NBOA) launched a survey to benchmark the state of technology at independent schools. This will be the first-ever comprehensive research study to evaluate the technology staffing, budget, priorities and challenges amongst independent schools.
