Houghton Mifflin Harcourt said in a press release that it will keep its recent acquisition SchoolChapters and its employees in West Hartford.

Boston-based Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, among the world's largest providers of pre-K-12 education solutions and one of its longest-established publishing houses, announced the deal on July 1. The acquisition is the result of a partnership developed since HMH invested in SchoolChapters in April 2013.

SchoolChapters, founded in 2011, manages the educational accreditation process for school administrators, and connects parents and students to homework and notes over a cloud network, according to the Hartford Courant.

"We believe in the power of technology to transform the learning experience and drive teacher effectiveness and student success," Brook Colangelo, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of HMH, said in a press release. "This acquisition represents a further investment in leading-edge technologies that place the needs of learners and educators at the center, and signals our unwavering commitment to digital solutions that drive improved student outcomes."
