PowerSchool has acquired Hoonuit, a K12 analytics and data management company, which has been deployed by 12 US states, including Texas, Louisiana and Indiana to provide K12 analytics and data management solutions.

PowerSchool says it supports more than 45 million students in over 80 countries with K12 ed tech services, including student information systems, and classroom, finance, and HR management tools. 

PowerSchool chief executive Hardeep Gulati said: “With the acquisition of Hoonuit, PowerSchool can now offer a fully comprehensive education technology portfolio for K12 educators with advanced analytics woven throughout.

“The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation in schools, while also increasing challenges in equity, enrolment and learning outcomes.

“We are dedicated to ensuring the tools educators are using today to bridge enrolment and learning gaps, and better manage district operations, will also enhance student outcomes into the future.”

Shivani Stumpf, chief technology officer of Hoonuit, who is joining PowerSchool as vice-president of analytics, said: “Joining PowerSchool will allow us to help even more people gain access to our insights and analytics solution and empower educators, families and communities with actionable insights to improve student outcomes.

“Hoonuit customers will benefit from additional investments including continued integrations with any data source they currently use and a continued focus on data interoperability, security, and quality.

“PowerSchool customers will benefit from a unified analytics solution that supports personalising learning and advancing student outcomes.” 

PowerSchool is based in Folsom, California; Hoonuit is headquartered in Little Falls, Minnesota.

PowerSchool is jointly owned by Vista Equity Partners and Onex Corporation, two buyout groups.
