Welcome to InterSchola’s Blog!

July 23, 2007

Welcome to our InterSchola Blog.  Here, members of our organization will share information about how public school and local public agencies can maximize the value of their no longer needed surplus items – such as food service items, technology assets, vehicles, maintenance equipment, school supplies, classroom fixtures, sports equipment, musical instruments, shop equipment (woodshop and metal shop), portable classrooms, office equipment etc.

InterSchola is fast becoming the most sought-after provider of turn key services and solutions for buying and selling SURPLUS education property (durable goods) though our online marketplace for such products. In a nutshell, InterSchola is helping education institutions sell their surplus assets on eBay. We are seeing phenomenal results of auctions of surplus goods on behalf of these institutions and we have a great deal more demand to work with other education and non education institutions as well as buyers of all of our asset categories – technology, food service, vehicles, facilities and maintenance equipment, shop equipment, sports equipment etc.

As budget challenges and demographics cause significant shifts in the education landscape, it becomes increasingly important for school districts to keep a close eye on their budget resource allocations. Extracting extra dollars from no longer needed district assets through the public sale these assets is one way to supplement limited education budgets. The InterSchola marketplace further provides a means for local schools and districts to sell excess or idle equipment and supplies to other school districts nationwide that are forced to meet new and existing standards with limited increase in overall funding.

To date, InterSchola has returned almost over $1M to our school clients and helped them save countless more dollars that were previously spent on labor, storage and waste disposal costs thus allowing them to use this money to fund other education expenditures to improve the learning environment for K-12 students!

InterSchola understands that education and public agency personnel must focus on their respective core missions to provide public services to their constituencies. InterSchola relieves the burden of managing the disposal/sale of surplus assets for our clients in compliance with relevant regulations to enable our clients to focus on their primary day-to-day responsibilities while creating a valuable new source of revenue for these same clients.

InterSchola’s corporate mission as a full service provider of surplus asset management helps K-12 schools and districts realize the benefits of a more efficient educational inventory management/ procurement process, incorporating best practice business solutions through the creation of a secondary market for education assets. The creation of an effective secondary market will generate new K-12 school revenues.

Further social benefit will be gained through the reduction of premature disposal of assets. InterSchola’s eBay market solution as well as our scrap and recycling channels will extend the lifecycle of these assets and greatly reduce the volume of materials that have historically been sent to local landfill due to lack of existing resources to handle effective disposal by other means.
