Market Leading Software teams with Nationally-known Thought Leader

(November 19, 2015 – Frisco, Texas)

SuccessEd, the innovative software provider for educators, is proud to announce that John Seidlitz has joined their Board of Advisors.  Mr. Seidlitz is the founder and CEO of Seidlitz Education, the company whose mission is to support school districts and teachers with increasing academic achievement for English Language Learners.

“We could not be more pleased to have John join our Advisory Board,” says Jim Bridges, SuccessEd CEO.  “Several months ago, we hired John and his team to review our ELL product, ELLA.  It did not take long to realize that our two organizations shared a like heart and vision for the children and teachers that we serve.  Bringing John onto our Advisory Board was a natural next step.  So much of our success as a company is due to the invaluable contributions of subject-matter experts like John and his team.  In this role, John will be applying his wealth of experience, skill, and knowledge to help guide the future development of ELLA.  Hundreds of educators are already using ELLA and we know that John’s insights and suggestions will help us serve them, and many others, even better,” Bridges added.

John Seidlitz expressed his excitement about the deeper relationship saying, “At Seidlitz Education, our mission is to help English Language Learners grow in academic literacy.  Whether through consulting, coaching, or training, we want to help educators help these students.  SuccessEd shares this same passion.  The more I learned about SuccessEd and their ELLA product, the more I became excited about its potential to help us both achieve these goals.  I am proud to be a part of this team and am excited about what we can do together in the years ahead.”

ELLA was first launched by SuccessEd in the fall of 2012, and is now being used by hundreds of educators around the country.  With ELLA, educators are able to accelerate the cumbersome process of gathering and organizing ELL records.  The result is greater accuracy and, most importantly, more time with the kids and less with the keyboard.  Edna Garcia, Director for Federal and Student Academic Services at Plainview ISD shared her thoughts, saying “ELL records require crucial attention to detail. SuccessEd has streamlined the documentation process and allows us to continue to be thorough in a systematic manner. We appreciate the faces and minds behind a product that will allow us to remain compliant while also returning time to our teachers and key district members.”
