TORONTO, ON – May 26, 2021 —KEV Group, the leading provider of school activity fund management software, today announced that Saskatoon Public Schools has chosen the SchoolCash platform to enhance its ability to manage school activity funds. With the addition of Saskatoon Public Schools, KEV will count almost 50% of all Saskatchewan Public School Divisions as well as several from the Separate School Division as customers.
