STI Delivers Next Generation Data Management and Student Achievement Solution to Schools Across Tennessee

Twenty-Six School Districts Select InformationNOW to Improve Student Outcomes

MOBILE, AL--(Marketwired - March 17, 2015) - STI, a leading provider of education data management and student achievement solutions to the K-12 public and private school market, today announced that 26 school districts across the state of Tennessee are using InformationNOW, STI's comprehensive K-12 education platform. Two hundred forty-five schools serving more than 130,000 students are now providing teachers and administrators with the ability to transform information into a learning enabler through access to reliable data, intuitive classroom tools, robust administrative features, and streamlined state reporting.

District administrators across Tennessee partner with STI to quickly and easily tap into the power of data and information to maximize student potential and put each student on an individual path to academic success. Delivering insight and analytics around student performance, STI provides educators with the tools to maximize student potential at the classroom level while also supporting overall student achievement districtwide.

"We are excited to work with schools and districts across Tennessee to transform how they use data and information to inform the teaching and learning process and promote student achievement," said Derek Dunaway, STI chief executive officer. "STI continues to expand our geographic footprint to reach and engage more students across the country and drive academic achievement in the K-12 classrooms we serve. The technology and services we are delivering to Tennessee schools will facilitate collaboration, access to information, and effective use of tools to improve student performance statewide."

As part of its efforts to increase student performance and prepare children for future success, the Tennessee Department of Education designated STI as an approved student information system vendor to provide a simplified, cost-effective way for Tennessee districts and schools to get started with InformationNOW. In recent state-hosted testing of approved SIS vendors to determine readiness and efficiency in migrating existing student data from the legacy systems, InformationNOW outperformed all other solutions. InformationNOW's results demonstrate its ability to rapidly integrate with existing systems used by Tennessee's schools and districts and to begin to generate transformative, data-driven results.

"As part of the SIS vendor selection committee for the state of Tennessee, I looked for a user-friendly solution that would not only meet our state reporting needs, but also make our schools and districts more efficient," said Sharon Spears, director of attendance, Coffee County Board of Education. "I can say without a doubt that InformationNOW meets our needs, and the needs of our students. InformationNOW provides our teachers and administrators the tools to make informed, data-driven decisions about how to help our students reach their academic potential."

InformationNOW currently helps teachers drive student achievement in more than 5,000 schools across the country.
