With the outstanding support of Pearson, our district experienced a seamless implementation in the migration from SASI to PowerSchool Premier

Pearson, the global leader in education and education technology, announced today that the Antelope Valley Union High School District has selected PowerSchool Premier as its student data management solution. The system will launch in the Fall of 2009 to support 13 high schools and nearly 24,000 students.

The district's upgrade from SASI to PowerSchool Premier is part of Pearson's SASI Customer First Program, which is designed to reward the longstanding loyalty of its SASI customers and provide them with an updated technology infrastructure capable of growing alongside their student information management needs now and well into the future.
"With the outstanding support of Pearson, our district experienced a seamless implementation in the migration from SASI to PowerSchool Premier," said Gary Allen, IT Director for Antelope Valley Union High School District. "The PowerSchool technology now enables us to focus on 21st century learning as we prepare our high school students for the next phase of their academic life."

The upgrade to the PowerSchool Premier infrastructure provides several key benefits to the Antelope Valley Union High School District. The centralized, web-based solution - which can be accessed anytime, anywhere - enables district end users to store their data in one centralized location and seamlessly generate attendance records, grade checks, report cards, and transcripts. With PowerSchool Premier, Antelope Valley parents and students now have access to real-time information like grades, attendance information and student progress.
By integrating Pearson Inform, a performance reporting system, district end users have access to intuitive reports on student achievement, which makes it faster and easier for schools to target assistance, measure progress, and create informed decisions.

"Antelope Valley is a great example of how our products can serve the unique challenges and meet the needs of different districts," said Paul Fletcher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the School Systems group of Pearson. "Our educational technology infrastructure goes beyond data delivery by supporting decisions that impact student performance and enhance collaboration among districts, schools, teachers and students."

PowerSchool Premier is the first student information system designed from the ground up as a web-based solution and offers easy access to real-time data via a standard web browser, on a Mac or PC. Paired with Pearson Inform, PowerSchool Premier moves K-12 schools and districts beyond administrative reporting by enabling them to use the data they collect to increase student achievement and identify trends and patterns that may affect student outcomes. PowerSchool Premier focuses on the needs of those districts requiring a system that includes ease of use, community focus, embedded functionality and lower administrative costs.
