Frontline Technologies Acquires Professional Development Solutions Provider Teachscape Inc
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — January 19, 2016. Frontline Technologies, a leader in K-12 Education Software, has acquired Teachscape, Inc. Teachscape provides professional growth solutions for K-12 and higher education. The acquisition adds further expertise in observation training and assessment, evaluation management, comprehensive learning systems and video-based learning tools for educators to Frontline’s expanding education software portfolio.
“Our goal is to build the broadest-reaching set of solutions to serve the education community, and professional growth will play a substantial role in that,” said Frontline President and CEO Tim Clifford. “We will become the leader in professional growth solutions for K-12 education by integrating best-in-class software and resources.”
Frontline Technologies is now building upon a full suite of premium professional development resources that began with the strategic acquisition of industry leader MyLearningPlan. Their offering includes professional growth management, evaluation, custom learning modules and the ability to assess impact to student outcomes. Developed in partnership with educators and experts, Teachscape’s products support the development of instructional practice throughout an educator’s career.
The acquisition incorporates Teachscape’s instructional practice development solutions into Frontline’s professional growth offering. Frontline Technologies will leverage Teachscape’s professional growth industry knowledge as well as their unique understanding of and experience with the 2011 and 2013 versions of Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching to improve solution development and portfolio breadth.
Frontline Technologies remains rubric agnostic with solid partnerships including Stronge & Associates, an educational consulting company that focuses on teacher and leader effectiveness. However, the ability to offer multiple framework options, including Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching, is a distinct advantage for Frontline Technologies customers. Input from Teachscape’s experienced team members will help guide the implementation of best practices and processes into Frontline’s existing professional growth offering.
With the addition of Teachscape’s customer base, Frontline Technologies will provide professional growth and human resources software to more than 7,000 school districts nationwide.
Frontline’s strong and rapidly-growing market position is coupled with premier client services and support, featuring a customer retention rate of over 97% across all products and ensuring that Teachscape’s existing customers will receive premium support from the Frontline client services team.
