PeopleAdmin and PowerSchool announce partnership to create the industry’s first integrated education talent management solution and K-12 student information system
K-12 technology industry leaders join forces to empower educators and improve student success through integrated analytics and processes for millions of teachers and more than one third of U.S. students
AUSTIN, Texas — Feb. 17, 2016 — PeopleAdmin and PowerSchool LLC, two companies leading the K-12 industry in education technology software, announced today they will partner to help educators integrate teacher performance and effectiveness information with student achievement information to harness the power of analytics to improve academic outcomes.
PeopleAdmin is the leader in cloud-based talent management solutions for K-20 education. PowerSchool is the leading K-12 technology provider of Student Information Systems (SIS), and Enrollment and Assessment solutions.
The collaboration will bring immediate advantages to teachers and principals using both PowerSchool’s SIS and PeopleAdmin’s TalentEd Perform, a teacher evaluation system that is part of a comprehensive suite of K-12 talent management solutions including SchoolSpring, the top K-12 educational job site.
“This partnership is about using technology to make a difference in the lives of teachers, administrators and students,” said Kermit S. Randa, CEO of PeopleAdmin. “Educators using our systems will be able to enjoy a seamless experience as they more easily manage their daily information needs. More broadly, we will help them leverage the power of data and analytics to achieve improved academic results.”
“To improve the education experience, school districts need to understand how to develop and recruit more teachers based on the performance and success of the students they teach,” said PowerSchool CEO Hardeep Gulati. “We are excited to partner with PeopleAdmin to deliver best-in-class, unique analytics and capabilities that will significantly benefit both companies’ large education communities.”
PeopleAdmin, based in Austin, Texas, serves a third of all educators and administrators across the U.S. education spectrum, who in turn serve more than 30 percent of all students in America. PowerSchool, based in Folsom, California, serves 25 percent of all K-12 schools in North America and over 15 million students in more than 70 countries. The partnership includes plans to build single sign-on between PowerSchool and PeopleAdmin. The integration will make it easier for districts to access student and teacher information, and will save principals time in gathering student information for teacher evaluations.
“Any time we can help K-12 schools, districts and consortiums better focus on serving their teachers and students through data, we’re helping improve our educational system and the lives of others for decades and generations to come,” Randa said.
