The South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) has awarded a multi-year contract to the software solutions unit of Little Rock-based IT service company Mainstream Technologies. The goal is to create a system of record for educator certification and licensing that enhances efficiency and operational effectiveness across the enterprise by:
- automating the creation, tracking, retrieval, and reporting of educator certificates;
- recording, tracking and reporting teacher supplemental compensation; and
- creating a centralized repository for all certification and compensation information.
The Office of Educator Services, which is responsible for the recruitment, preparation and certification of educators, will serve as the provider of the new system.
Jeff Byers, Mainstream’s vice president of software solutions, said: “We are excited about this opportunity to expand our work in education, particularly in the area of educator certification.”
Mainstream also has an operations facility in Conway and a sales office in Bentonville.
