Education Advanced Inc. (EAI), a leading provider of operations management and workflow solutions for K-12 school districts, has acquired Standard for Success (SFS), an EdTech company that provides a software platform for teacher evaluation, program assessment, and graduation pathways tracking to educators and administrators.
Founded in 2011 by two former classroom teachers, Todd Whitlock and Diane Whitlock, Standard for Success is the award-winning provider of education evaluation and feedback software tools and services. The platform is currently being used by educators in 38 states and the District of Columbia as well as schools in Canada, Australia, and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Convenient, easy to use, and customizable, Standard for Success has become the performance and program evaluation tool of choice for educators in schools across the globe while bringing value-added resources to schools to help develop better teachers, better students, and a better world.
Commenting on the acquisition, Dr. Eli Crow, CEO of Education Advanced, said,
“Education Advanced and Standard for Success have aligned cultures and a shared sense of purpose. Together we offer an unparalleled commitment to K-12 education. By joining forces, we will help schools better plan for the future by growing teachers, improving the feedback process, giving time back to administrators, and ensuring students are on the right path to meet their academic goals.”
The solutions brought by Standard for Success complement the current EAI product line, which offers tools to streamline operations and increase efficiency for K-12 school districts. The EAI expanded product suite now includes subscription software to help with master scheduling, staff planning, curriculum management, assessment coordination, educator growth, graduation tracking, and program evaluation. EAI said the combined company will reach over 5 million students in more than 10,000 schools globally.
Todd Whitlock, Co-founder & CEO of Standard for Success, said in a statement,
“In the detailed internal discussions on how to grow the impact of SFS’s products, it became clear that the combined resources of our talents could have a much greater influence together than we could independently. The team that Eli has put together is led by educators and that passion for education matched our mantra. I am excited to see what problems this dynamic team can solve for educators and continue to impact the efficiency of the business of ‘education’ to drive success for students and educators.”
Education Advanced’s operations management and workflow solutions enable educators to be more efficient, allowing them to dedicate more of their time and resources to exceeding student needs. The company’s product offering includes Cardonex, TestHound, and Embarc (formerly BYOC).
