About edCount

edCount, LLC, is a woman-owned small business founded in 2003 by Ellen Forte, Ph.D. At edCount, we believe that quality teacher-student interactions are at the heart of any healthy education system. Whether we are serving one classroom or multiple states, all of our services focus ultimately on improving this central experience for all students and teachers.

To support federal, state, district, and school level clients who are similarly committed to this vision and mission, we assist our clients in aligning instructional systems and building teacher and leader capacity, building quality assessment systems that support teaching and learning, and gathering data and sharing knowledge so that policy and practice may inform one another.

In less than a decade, edCount has risen to national prominence as a trusted advisor to education agencies and practitioners, a dependable business partner to organizations and businesses, and a visionary thought-leader in the education field. Since 2003, we have provided direct services to more than 18 states and U.S. territories and have provided advisory services to groups that together have included all 50 states and seven U.S. territories.
