Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Introduces New Education Services Organization for K-12 Customers

Launch of HMH Education Services brings comprehensive set of solutions to schools and districts

BOSTON--()--Global learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced HMH Education Services, a newly formed organization that will offer a comprehensive set of services to K-12 districts, administrators and educators.

HMH Education Services will provide a full spectrum of support, from technical planning and curriculum implementation guidance to district-wide data analysis and school improvement offerings. The team will also introduce new ways to deliver professional development to educators, including additional digital and blended learning options. Highlights include a new “Digital Learning Essentials” series, which offers best practice training for technology-enhanced instruction, and “AskHMH,” an online teacher resource available 24/7. Multiple modes of delivery will give customers increased choice and provide educators with a more flexible development and support experience.

“Our customers’ needs and environments are changing and we’re changing with them,” said Chris Goodson, SVP of Education Services at HMH. “Technology is transforming the way we teach and learn, as well as how we connect with educators, students and parents – both inside and outside the classroom. This transformation requires a new way of thinking about and delivering services to our customers, and we have reshaped our organization to do just that.”

HMH Education Services is expected to reach over 400,000 educators a year and will provide a comprehensive menu of solutions from which customers can build their own customized services portfolio. These include:

  • Leadership and transformational support at school and district level;
  • Data analysis and implementation offerings;
  • Technology readiness and planning services, including implementing 1:1 learning;
  • Professional development and training at teacher and classroom level;
