PowerSchool Plans to Acquire New Orleans EdTech Company Kickboard

PowerSchool, the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education, has signed an agreement to acquire Kickboard for an undisclosed amount. This is one of several recent acquisitions of New Orleans-based technology companies. 

Kickboard is an education technology company that provides education behavior management solutions to schools and school districts. 

“Addressing students’ social emotional well-being and mental health is critical, not just for schools and districts, but for our families and communities, and as the industry leader in K-12 education technology, we’re committed to providing the best solutions to support them,” said Hardeep Gulati, CEO of PowerSchool. “Millions of teachers and students use our solutions every day and by combining Kickboard’s behavior management solutions for K-12 education, we’re taking an important step to providing real, comprehensive insights that give educators a complete view of the whole student.”

The businesses will continue to operate separately until the deal has closed.
