“Education Advanced and Standard for Success have aligned cultures and a shared sense of purpose,” said Education Advanced CEO Dr. Eli Crow. “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.”

This partnership brings together a vast network of K-12 schools, a strong customer base, and recognized excellence in the EdTech industry. 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. Together, Education Advanced and Standard for Success will reach over 5 million students in more than 10,000 schools globally.

“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,” said Standard for Success CEO Todd Whitlock. “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.”
