Schoolnet was founded in 1998 by Jonathan D. Harber and Denis P. Doyle, experts on the convergence of education reform and technological advances. Harber, a visionary developer of education technology, and Doyle, a former Assistant Director of the National Institute of Education, recognized the problems inherent in utilizing disparate technological platforms to meet a multitude of education challenges. Together, they developed the Schoolnet Instructional Management Suite in order to streamline education technology and create programs that were easily understood by educators.
In June 2011, Schoolnet was acquired by Pearson, the world's leading learning company. Schoolnet and Pearson share a common vision where we believe in learning - all kinds of learning - for all kinds of students. Pearson offers world-class solutions for K-12 education, including PowerSchool, Chancery SMS, PowerTeacher, and others. For more information on Pearson, please click here.
