Securly, Inc. (“Securly”), the student safety and wellness pioneer and a portfolio company of Golden Gate Capital, today announced that it acquired Eduspire Solutions, LLC (“Eduspire”), an education technology company transforming student movement through its digital hall pass and flex period management solutions.
