Chalkable Announcements: Chalkable Joins PowerSchool Family to Increase Value to Customers

Posted by Deanna Zaucha on October 25, 2016

Last week we had the pleasure to publicly announce that Chalkable has been acquired by PowerSchool, the leader for K-12 education technology solutions.

Specifically, Chalkable’s Positive Reinforcement System, Learning Earnings, will help differentiate PowerSchool’s Unified Classroom Platform to provide a single unified experience for teachers, students, and parents. This will better empower teachers, administrators, district leaders, and students to improve school culture.

“The incentive-based reward approach built into the Positive Reinforcement System helps curb negative behavior in the classroom by encouraging positive student behavior. Teachers can set goals for individual students or a whole class. When students achieve objectives, such as completing and turning in an assignment, improving test scores, or achieving attendance goals, they earn credits. Students can save their credits in a virtual bank account or spend them at the school store, where they can purchase rewards such as hall passes, free time or lunch with the teacher, or even tangible rewards such as school supplies, snacks, clothes, music, games, and movie passes.” - PowerSchool

Here at Chalkable, we are incredibly excited to be joining forces with PowerSchool. Their company has made its mission to improve the K-12 education experience through innovative technology. Since we are both passionate about education technology, it made sense to bring our teams together in an effort to reach even more schools to improve and empower classrooms around the world.

We understand for our loyal Chalkable customers, there may be many lingering questions for what this means for your school or your district.
