Alma Acquires Always Prepped

Alma, an edtech company offering a holistic student engagement platform, acquired Always Prepped, Inc., a Chevy Chase, Maryland-based K-12 data integration company.

The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Funded by True Ventures, Always Prepped aggregates and analyzes student classroom performance, attendance and behavior metrics from several online programs in a single dashboard for teachers. The company launched its current platform in February 2014, and is being used by schools in 37 states and 24 countries.

The acquisition enables Alma to provide additional insights for educators at both the class and administrative levels.

Led by CEO and Co-founder Andrew Herman, Alma provides the cloud-based Holistic Student Engagement Platform (HSEP), which unites Student Information System and Learning Management System into an integrated experience that allows educators with a complete view of the student learning process. The software integrates multiple school and district functions into a single system that chronicles state reporting, curriculum management, lesson plans, grades, report cards, school calendars, inter-school messaging and notes, student data, parent communications, and assessments.
