Frontline Education Recognized for Adding Value to K-12 Administrators and the EdTech Industry by a Variety of Organizations in 2021

Frontline Education, a leading provider of administration software purpose-built for educators in K-12, has been recognized throughout 2021 for its innovation, expertise and commitment to serving K-12 leaders by providing technology that supports the growth of people and optimizes the management of processes.

In December, Frontline’s HRMS solution was selected as a finalist by Supes’ Choice under the HR/Finance category. Part of the Frontline Human Capital Management Suite, HRMS enables HR teams to drive talent, compensation, benefits and position management in one system for better insight and management. The Supes’ Choice Awards is the only education industry award judged exclusively by school district superintendents recognizing education technology products that are solving the most challenging problems facing K-12 education today. In September, EdTech Digest selected Frontline’s Student Analytics Lab (formerly Forecast5 5Lab) as a finalist for the Cool Tool Awards. Frontline Student Analytics Lab consolidates disparate data sources into a single analytics environment helping administrators do the important work of identifying learning gaps and determining intervention methods to improve student achievement outcomes.

As a mission-driven brand in business to support school leaders and teachers, Frontline places great emphasis on its culture and core values.
