Follett Aspen Student Information System Partners with MyFlexLearning


MCHENRY, Ill., Sept. 16, 2021 — Follett School Solutions and Nash Consulting, LLC, today announced a partnership to integrate the Follett Aspen Student Information System with Nash Consulting’s MyFlexLearning, a flexible scheduling platform. Together, the two systems give schools the benefit of the robust Aspen master scheduler and the ability to provide flexible and personalized daily offerings for students via MyFlexLearning.

Officials from both companies explained that many schools are finding they need to schedule individual student periods on a just-in-time basis – more granularly, frequently and flexible than typical class schedules. Aspen provides powerful master scheduling capabilities for schools to deliver core subjects, while MyFlexLearning enhances this with ad-hoc enrichment and intervention opportunities controlled by the teachers and students.

The seamless integration between Aspen and MyFlexLearning ensures that relevant data is shared securely and daily between the two systems. MyFlexLearning will have current Aspen data so that flex time operations run smoothly. The integration also leverages Aspen’s data configuration capabilities to allow school users and parents to view students’ flex time schedules without leaving the Aspen platform.
