PowerSchool Group LLC Acquires TIENET from Maximus to improve instruction, intervention, and special education

By: PowerSchool Web Team | | No Comments |

PowerSchool is excited to announce its acquisition of TIENET, the market leading solution for special education case management, response to intervention, & behavior management! Providing educators with the appropriate tools, resources, & strategies for reaching students with diverse abilities is a key element of success in the classroom.

Education Week recently reported the rise of the number of students requiring special education services to nearly 6 million, nationwide. That number is inclusive of underperforming students who need personalized intervention, proactive support for autism, and students who have behavioral problems. A major factor contributing to that increase is educators not having access to adequate resources that fully equip them to accommodate a student's rate of learning.

PowerSchool and MAXIMUS collaborated two years ago to resolve this issue by implementing PowerSchool Special Education powered by TIENET. This acquisition extends the benefits seen through that partnership by allowing districts to seamlessly manage the entire special education process, including: pre-referral, eligibility, IEP development, service documentation, reporting to parents, 504 plans, and personalized education programs.  Read the press release to learn more.
