State College, Pennsylvania, June 30, 2014 – Today, Schoolwires launches its PassKey Partner Program to the K-12 education technology community, offering solution providers the potential to enhance their customers’ user experience through single sign-on efficiency while increasing product adoption.

As an increasing number of technology solutions become implemented in K-12 school districts, administrators, parents and students are forced to maintain multiple sets of log-in credentials to access these systems. Schoolwires, developer of the industry-leading Centricity2 Community Management System, affords K-12 technology companies the opportunity to join with them to enable a branded single sign-on experience for their mutual K-12 customers.

As part of the Passkey Partner Program, Schoolwires also provides partners with marketing support that enables partners to expand their visibility and reach while helping to impact adoption of their solutions within the K-12 education market.

The popularity of Centricity2 among the nation’s most forward-looking K-12 districts gives Schoolwires PassKey Partners a unique opportunity to improve the user experience of over 1,600 school districts and educational entities an estimated 11 million users. By establishing a presence in the PassKey Partner Library, solution providers increase their brand and product visibility among K-12 district leaders.

“The Schoolwires PassKey Program benefits both partners and K-12 community members by eliminating the need to maintain a variety of IDs and passwords in order to access the growing number of education technology systems deployed in today’s digital learning environment,” said Christiane Crawford, Schoolwires President and CEO. “We invite education technology companies who strive to reach more K-12 decision makers and improve the user experience of our mutual K-12 school district customers to join the PassKey Partner Program today.”
