GuideK12™ selected as a Pearson Independent Software Vendor


GuideK12™ and Pearson’s K-12 Technology group today announce a multifaceted strategic relationship that combines the global scale and reach of Pearson with GuideK12’s Geovisual Analytics capabilities to give customers unprecedented geo visualization of student data found in PowerSchool®, the leading student information system. The Independent Software Vendor (ISV) relationship will help school districts improve learning, produce accurate forecasts, build capacity plans, facilitate transparent boundary discussions, and optimize district resources.

“GuideK12 offers unique, new data visualization and analysis technology to PowerSchool customers enabling better strategic planning and decision making,” said Bryan MacDonald, CTO for Pearson’s K-12 Technology group. “We are thrilled that customers can explore their PowerSchool data with GuideK12 to display the complex three-dimensional information on a map.”

“We are proud to be working collaboratively with Pearson,” said Chuck Amos, CEO for GuideK12.   “Visualizing student data linked to their geographic location reveals patterns and trends that may be hidden from view with any other method and helps drive data driven decision-making.  We believe this arrangement is tremendous for school districts across the country.”
