Propello, a K-12 teaching and learning platform intentionally designed by educators for educators, has recently announced its partnership with PowerSchool, the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education in North America. This collaboration aims to offer standards-aligned, pre-vetted curriculum, labs, assignments, and formative assessments that educators can modify based on the unique needs of their students to create more personalized learning experiences.
Propello aims to revolutionize traditional education models by providing advanced, customizable EdTech solutions that unlock the full potential of both students and teachers, regardless of their background, location, or unique needs. This is the company’s inaugural partnership following its launch in January 2023.
Speaking about the latest development, Founder & CEO of Propello, Hubert Kjellberg, said:
Partnering with PowerSchool will allow us to more directly connect millions of teachers and students with the scaffolding and personalized content they need to excel. Propello helps school districts provide teachers with comprehensive curriculum, scaffolding, and insights to support students at every ability level, and our K-12 teaching and learning platform ensures that each student can have a first-class learning experience.
As part of the partnership, Propello’s customizable content will join the PowerSchool ContentNav ecosystem, part of PowerSchool’s Personalized Learning Cloud, to serve as a master content and learning objective repository that supports PowerSchool’s over 50 million students globally. Educators and districts in the PowerSchool community will have access to Propello’s comprehensive, standards-aligned curriculum, complete with embedded student supports like language translations that simplify the adaptation of lessons to fit the needs of every district, every school and every learner.
Propello helps to ensure that every student in the district receives the quality instruction and embedded supports and accommodations they need to be successful. Its student-centred curriculum builds on students’ prior knowledge with real-world, culturally relevant, and hands-on learning. The company believes education is a right, not a privilege. By designing solutions that help personalize learning for every student and fit every budget, the platform is working to create a more equitable future.
Marcy Daniel, Chief Product Officer of PowerSchool, added:
We are committed to making personalized education a reality for every student. We are pleased to partner with Propello to continue providing educators access to resources supporting differentiated instruction and personalization. We understand the impact of high-quality content and curriculum on improving student outcomes and helping students to realize their full potential.
