Certica Solutions, provider of the Certica Connect™ K-12 data and application integration platform, announced that YES Prep Public Schools has chosen Certica to deliver a comprehensive platform of data architecture, based on the Ed-Fi data standard and technology. YES Prep Public Schools is a Houston-based public charter school system serving 11,600 students in grades 6-12.

Certica’s Ed-Fi team was created through the acquisition of Educuity, Ed-Fi pioneers based in Austin, Texas, in August 2016. The Ed-Fi data standard and technology components enable educators and education technology companies to achieve data integration and application interoperability between education data systems, and enable processes to improve student outcomes. YES Prep also currently uses Certica’s data validation application, Certify™, which enables K-12 organizations to validate, monitor and improve data related to funding, accountability and state reporting.

Mark Rankovic, President and CEO of Certica, said, “YES Prep has recognized that true, personalized learning must be driven by accurate, integrated, real-time data. YES Prep’s vision was consistent with our company’s Next Generation K-12 Data Architecture approach and our Certica Connect platform-as-a-service strategy, which allows for centralized integration, access and enrichment of education data, metadata and content – for K-12 agencies and EdTech providers, alike. We’re excited to deepen our existing partnership with YES Prep and help this organization achieve its goals.”
