With this partnership, the companies are looking to improve the integrity, security and flow of data between Blackboard’s product portfolio that offers a range of K-12 solutions for teaching, learning, communication and parent engagement, and PowerSchool®, Pearson’s K-12 student information system (SIS).

The first Blackboard solution to be integrated is the mass notification provider Blackboard Connect™.
