Enterprise software is not a new idea in the world of business or sports, but in K-12 education, it has been difficult to break down the silos of ownership. MIDAS Education is the first Education Enterprise Management—or EEM—solution. MIDAS was built from the ground up on a single data model and provides ALL of the instructional functionality, data analytics, reporting, security, compliance, and ROI analysis normally found in 17 separate siloed systems. These systems include SIS, LMS, Web Hosting, RtI, Special Education, Health, Scheduling, Reporting, Compliance, and more.
To ensure security and scalability, MIDAS is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Consolidating data and reporting into one easily configurable system saves districts and state departments of education up to 70% of their annual software costs. LEAs and SEAs can start small with one or two modules and increase functionality as they grow their capacity and efficacy.

Learners practice letter sounds, onset rimes, and word building. Continuous assessments within the games track student performance with data collection in the enhanced Teacher Portal. Square Panda recently released SquareLand adaptive curriculum, an imaginative world of play and learning that uses adaptive mini games to engage students in early reading skills. Students play as Square Panda, exploring letter recognition, phonemic sounds, phonics, vocabulary and more advancing them. The more students play as Square Panda the more personalized the learning becomes advancing them according to their performance level.
