The project is called EMDS (Educational Media Digital Services).
Puerto Rico’s school district accommodates over 500,000 students making it the third largest US school district following New York City and Los Angeles. The current contract covers about 25% of Puerto Rico schools. Core Learning has appointed Vernet as its distributor in Puerto Rico and Vernet will represent Core Learning’s products to all schools in Puerto Rico.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Vernet in bringing digital curriculum resources to the teachers of Puerto Rico”, said Doug Hatch, President & CEO of Core Learning. “In addition to sales representation, Vernet also provides professional development services and can translate curriculum products into Spanish. We look forward to collaborating with Vernet on many projects moving forward. The current EMDS project is a great start. It also demonstrates an ability to assemble ‘best-of-breed’ offerings from multiple publishers and assemble the resources for a customer in a seamless, efficient manner. This is an effective template for other high level initiatives in digital curriculum procurement.”
