Message about PowerSchool Ownership

Dear NC Educators,

Many of you may have heard that Pearson is selling PowerSchool, the student information system portion of Home Base, to Vista Equity Partners, a U.S.-based private equity firm. This transaction is expected to occur in the third quarter of 2015 with a year-long transition. We do not anticipate any changes to PowerSchool operations, and you can expect to have business as usual. Please note, this transaction will not have any impact on Home Base, which includes PowerSchool and many other digital tools.

If you have questions about this, please feel free to contact Rosalyn Galloway, NCDPI Home Base Manager,

Tracy Weeks
NCDPI Chief Academic and Digital Learning Officer
