EBSCO Information Services announces collaboration with PowerSchool to enhance Stacks Portals

Ipswich, MA -- November 11, 2020. EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) announces new collaboration with PowerSchool, a leading provider of K-12 education technology solutions, to facilitate easy access and inclusion in course programming for teachers and students via EBSCOed powered by Stacks.

EBSCOed is offered by EBSCO, a leader in research content and information platforms. The EBSCOed portal serves as a single access point to all approved educational resources across the state or within a school district's community. The portal, powered by EBSCO's web-based content management system Stacks, makes it possible for schools to aggregate and streamline access to all of their digital resources in a single personalized experience that is interoperable with other popular tools. EBSCO is collaborating with PowerSchool to integrate Schoology Learning, PowerSchool's learning management system, with Stacks. Schoology Learning combines everything needed for teaching and learning in one place, and is designed to help schools and districts improve student performance while enabling equity and access for every student, at home, at school, or anywhere in between.

EBSCO Vice President, SaaS Product Technology and Innovation, and Stacks Founder Kristin Delwo says the integration of PowerSchool will help deliver a customized experience for schools and school districts utilizing Stacks. "With EBSCOed powered by Stacks, teachers and students are able to access all of their digital resources in one place. By collaborating with PowerSchool, users can more easily access resources from within PowerSchool, as well as send resources to Schoology Learning from EBSCOed."

From the front office to the classroom to the home, PowerSchool helps schools and districts efficiently manage instruction, learning, grading, attendance, assessment, analytics, state reporting, special education, student registration, talent, finance and HR.
