The cloud software company PowerSchool has added an online tutoring service to its learning management system (LMS).

According to the news release, a partnership with the online tutoring company Skooli will give district administrators using PowerSchool's Schoology Learning LMS access to Skooli's comprehensive academic online tutoring programs led by over 1.2 million professional teachers. PowerSchool said its customers include more than 90 of the 100 largest districts by enrollment in the U.S.

The announcement said Skooli’s program involves 24/7 support and personalized one-on-one online tutoring sessions with licensed teachers or people who hold higher-ed degrees and specialized certifications, who have been interviewed and vetted with a Level 2 criminal background check.

The partnership comes amid the growing popularity of online tutoring as schools work to reverse learning loss that occurred during remote instruction and the COVID-19 pandemic, and as educators are raising questions about the tutoring potential of AI chatbots.

"Through this collaboration, administrators can easily provide students and teachers a way to access support without ever leaving the Schoology Learning platform," PowerSchool's Chief Product Officer Marcy Daniel said in a public statement.

Skooli was a sponsor at the PowerSchool EDGE conference in July in Orlando, Fla., where the company shared insights on online learning and touted how partnership with PowerSchool could help address recent learning loss.

"We recognize the profound influence a great teacher can have on student outcomes," Skooli CEO Rene Frey said in a public statement. "As the only online tutoring company attached to a teacher licensure and recruitment platform, Skooli is dedicated to providing equitable access to high-quality education for students worldwide."
