Futurekids Announces New Professional Development Milestone with SchoolNet

The Futurekids team announced today that it had recently completed its 350th full-day session of professional development supporting the SchoolNet brand. SchoolNet is the leading provider of web-based solutions that help K-12 school systems increase student achievement, improve administrative efficiency and enhance communications between the school and families.

This marks the third year of Futurekids involvement with SchoolNet, and the partnership has helped both companies achieve a high level of growth. SchoolNet was recently named to the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing privately-held companies for the second year in a row. Futurekids operates in the United States and in 65 countries worldwide.

SchoolNet’s instructional management solutions deliver assessment data, curriculum, and reporting to teachers, principals and administrators through role-based dashboards, providing key performance indicators to each user based on their preferences and positions.

Ms. Dzana Homan, CEO of Futurekids, commented on the accomplishment.

“We’re excited to be able to help SchoolNet grow through our nationwide professional development support. It’s important for us to be aligned with like-minded companies, and SchoolNet has a powerful product that helps school districts show tangible improvement.”

“Our partnership with Futurekids has been a real factor in our growth,” said Mr. Jonathan D. Harber, CEO of SchoolNet. “Their ability to provide the necessary training and professional development to our customers on a nationwide basis allows us to provide quality service at scale.”

Several school districts, most notably Philadelphia, Penn. and Columbus, Ohio, recently reported significant advancements in student achievement since the district’s implementation of SchoolNet’s enterprise solution.

Mr. Alvin Crawford, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development for SchoolNet explained it this way. “When you bring an innovative platform to the market, it’s not enough to just install it and walk away. We’re committed to having our schools truly know how to maximize all that it can do, and professional development plays a big role in accomplishing that. The Futurekids team has been great to work with and really helps speed up deployment so our schools can start seeing the results right away.”

“It’s imperative that we give our students 21st century skills,” Ms. Homan continued. “The SchoolNet solution is one of the igniters of improved learning environments, which has been historically difficult to deploy in large, urban districts. The SchoolNet success rate in these districts is remarkable. There were a lot of skeptics who thought it could never be done.”
