K-12 Data Management Software Company Targets District Compliance and Accountability
WAKEFIELD, Mass., September 30, 2010 – Certica Solutions, a leading provider of compliance and accountability software for the K-12 education market, today announced that it has secured its 100th school district customer with the addition of Dallas Independent School District. Dallas ISD is one of a number of Texas school districts which use Certica Solutions’ Certify™ software to pro-actively and continuously validate and monitor student, school and teacher data – critical for districts’ compliance with state and federal reporting mandates and local, data-driven decision-making.
School districts nationwide are increasingly motivated to implement data management programs which include the daily validation and monitoring of data in areas such as dropout prevention, discipline, student assessment, teacher credentialing, special education and English language programs. Certica Solutions has focused solely on the data management needs of school districts since late 2006, having transformed from a consulting firm which had previously served the U.S. Department of Education. The company’s Certify software is used by districts and educational service agencies serving approximately 1.5 million students. Nearly ninety percent of the company’s business is derived from California, Florida, New York and Texas – states with significant data management challenges.
Said Mark Rankovic, Certica Solutions’ president and chief executive officer, “we are delighted to have reached this milestone of our 100th school district customer. As the bar is set higher each year for districts, in terms of the measurement and accountability placed on schools’ performance, Certica’s aim is to continue providing solutions which enable schools to have fast and easy access to critical information; while easing the burden of regulatory data reporting with streamlined, automated data management processes. We welcome Dallas ISD to our vibrant and collaborative community of users and thank the many districts which have worked so closely with us thus far.”
