Company Background & Overview
Since 1994, TransACT’s vision has been to provide a comprehensive set of legally-reviewed forms and notices in a wide range of languages for both native English and limited-English speaking parents. TransACT has helped thousands of K-12 educators nationwide achieve compliance with complex parent notification requirements.
The company is led by President/CEO and founder Rick Passovoy, who has assembled a world-class, quality focused team to support the needs of its customers. Rick has an extensive 20-year management background in K-12 education startups with well-known integrated learning systems (ILS) companies, as well as a 10-year management background with Fortune 100 companies.
The TransACT offices were originally located in Mukilteo, Washington, offering services that enabled the Mukilteo School District to communicate successfully with the parents of 12,000 students representing more than 50 different home languages. In October 2006, TransACT moved its headquarters to Lynnwood, Washington, a suburban community north of Seattle.
TransACT’s core competencies include:
- Legal and policy content development for multiple languages
- Web-based document delivery and accountability systems
- Federal programs compliance, guidance and personalized customer support
TransACT services meet the requirements for several federal funding opportunities, including Title I-A, Title III, Title V, Title IX and Title X. This allows schools to easily budget for services, save time and limited resources, and focus on their core business – educating children.
TransACT Today and Tomorrow
To date, more than 3,500 school districts, roughly one quarter of all districts in the country, have activated subscriptions in one or more TransACT services. Many of these districts have been clients for more than a decade.
Having mastered the delivery of multi-lingual compliance materials for schools across the country, TransACT began developing innovative software tools designed to let professionals in education – and any other sector – easily navigate the complex maze of compliance guidelines. TransACT® RoadMaps were created to guide people to the right information and documents. Taking the logical leap led TransACT to develop ActPoint®, a wizard-based application that allows users to easily create and implement fully customized decision trees to ensure compliance at all levels.
TransACT maintains professional affiliations and memberships with several industry associations and organizations, including:
- American Association of School Administrators (AASA) Allied Member
- Association of Education Services Agencies (AESA) Business Partner
