Boston — March 27, 2017 —itslearning, a leading global LMS provider, announced today that Washington School Information Processing Cooperative (WSIPC), has added the itslearning teaching and learning platform to its approved list of learning management systems. This development gives WSIPC’s diverse educational community the ability to purchase the teaching and learning platform, knowing that the solution has been successfully reviewed and found to meet or exceed all of the technical requirements outlined by the cooperative’s purchasing and procurement guidelines.
“This is a positive move for WSIPC members that need a state-authorized solution that leverages the purchasing strength and knowledge of the cooperative,” said itslearning CEO, Arne Bergby. “This partnership that will support WSIPC’s many member school districts speaks to the importance of having a LMS that is not only robust but also flexible enough to meet the needs of a very diverse group of students across five different states.”

With 280 school districts and nearly 730,000 students in more than 1,500 schools, WSIPC’s membership includes Educational Service Districts, other educational entities, and over 320 public and private schools and school districts.
