Boston, MA. August 21, 2019 – Public Consulting Group, Inc. (PCG), a leading provider of solutions implementation and operations improvement services to the public sector, today announced that it is expanding its portfolio of web-based education data management tools in the EDPlanTM suite with the acquisition of the Script™ system and other related assets from their previous owner, Script, LLC.

PCG’s EDPlan platform, designed in partnership with teachers, education professionals, and project management experts, is used by thousands of districts and schools and more than 30 states to promote a plan for student success—in special education, academics, behavior, and beyond. Script™’s suite of tools, such as Script Special Education and Early Childhood, Script Dyslexia, and Script™ English Language Learner (ELL), will enhance the breadth and quality of the reach, promotion, and impact that PCG is able to deliver to its clients with EDPlan.
“We have a deep appreciation for the transformative power of robust data management systems – on student learning, family engagement, instruction, teacher effectiveness, compliance, and so much more,” said Grant Blair, Director of PCG’s Education practice. “We are always seeking ways to enhance our system and expand its capabilities to positively impact student and teacher success and are confident that the Script™ solutions will help us deliver on those improved outcomes.”
As part of PCG’s asset acquisition of Script™, a number of Script, LLC’s personnel will be joining PCG as employees or contractors, including Jason Van Dyke, CEO of Script, LLC. “I am excited to join PCG and look forward to making Arkansas educators’ jobs even easier,” said Jason Van Dyke. “The increased resources and support at PCG will allow the Script™ solution to remain Arkansas focused while better supporting school districts, educators, and students with PCG offerings as well.”
