Alexandria, Va. – October 2, 2018 – Recognizing the burden school district employees are facing when it comes to managing federal student loan debt effectively, AASA, The School Superintendents Association, has launched a partnership with a California-based company specializing in student loan reduction and loan forgiveness programs on behalf of school district employees.

For more than seven years, GotZoom has provided expertise in reducing the principal balance and payment amounts for tens of thousands of school district employees across the country. With the help of GotZoom, these employees can reduce their monthly burden by an average of 65 percent.  

 “Statistically, about half of all school district employees have federal student loan debt while the national average of the debt per employee is just under $38,000,” said Chuck Woodruff, AASA chief operating officer. “This partnership will make it easier for school system employees to afford such things as the purchase of a home, starting a family or opening a retirement account. We look forward to working with GotZoom.”

“This partnership with AASA will have a significant impact on the financial wellness of superintendents and other administrators, staff, principals and faculty, and everyone associated with educating our students in our public schools,” said Tony Henderson, partner, GotZoom, Inc. “Part of GotZoom’s mission is to provide maximum relief to public sector employees under the burden of federal student loan debt.”

GotZoom is neither a lender nor a loan servicer, but a unique employee benefit services organization focused solely on navigating and certifying the myriad of U.S. Department of Education repayment and loan forgiveness programs.
