Illuminate Education Awarded Michigan REMC SAVE Contract for Data Warehouse Solution

IRVINE, California, May 16, 2016 – Illuminate Education, a leading education company that creates tools educators can use to promote student and educator success, today announced that it has been selected as an awarded REMC vendor in the State of Michigan. Illuminate Education’s Data and Assessment (DnA) solution was the only awarded data warehouse solution at the May REMC Association’s Board meeting.

“We are honored to have our data and assessment system awarded a contract by the REMC Association of Michigan,” said Lane Rankin, Founder and CEO of Illuminate Education. “The over 300 districts that we currently work with in Michigan know how important it is to have a resource such as Illuminate DnA. This includes ISDs such as Wayne RESA, Calhoun ISD, Oakland Schools, Eastern UP ISD, and Ingham ISD to name just a few. Through the REMC Save Bid program we look forward to introducing DnA to even more districts in Michigan as districts consider solutions designed to promote student and educator success.”

Rankin and his team of educators have been committed to creating tools that promote student and educator success for some time. In 2002 they created one of the first data and assessment platforms, Data Director. For the first time, this innovative system allowed teachers to use real time assessment data to identify areas that needed instructional focus. As the use of data became more prominent in school districts, it became clear schools needed a system for all their data. Student information systems, data and assessment management, and special education individual educational plans were all dependent on similar data. To meet this need, Rankin founded Illuminate Education in 2009 to encompass all of these functionalities in one platform.
