Houston ISD Supports Changes in K-12 Digital Content Purchasing

By Megan White

Hayes Software clients from Houston ISD made headlines this month by helping lead the charge for interoperability standards for the purchase and use of K-12 digital content. This new style of small batch purchasing (by the chapter, lesson, video, etc.) would increase usability and options of digital content in the classroom.  Education Week is reporting that these changes could “upend long-established purchasing patterns and help educators more easily access materials from multiple vendors.”

We’re honored to be the 1:1 device and classroom equipment inventory solution for Houston ISD’s PowerUp initiative, driving equitable access to technology for schools, students, and staff. Additionally, Hayes has committed to working alongside HISD to support their commitment to ensuring every dollar spent on content is managed and tracked.
