DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - May 10, 2017) - Istation, a leading provider of educational technology for pre-K through 12th grade students, announced today an expanded partnership with Clever to simplify and secure online learning for today's students.

Schools and apps connect on Clever's web-based platform to put next-generation software in the hands of students, helping teachers reclaim valuable learning time in classrooms. Half of K-12 schools in the U.S. and more than 250 apps connect on Clever to automate data integrations with online learning apps and simplify the login process for students and teachers.

Under the partnership, Clever and Istation will work together to ensure that Istation customers have access to the Clever platform, including single sign-on capabilities.

About Clever
Clever was founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable. Today, half of K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom. In 2014, Clever won the 'Crystal Clear' award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own 'Share my Lesson' platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, Peter Thiel's Founders Fund, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100 employees and is based in San Francisco, California.
