Arbortext, the leading global provider of automated publishing software, today announced that Calvert School Education Services has selected its software to create and deliver customized lessons, workbooks and other materials to students, educators, parents and administrators.

"Arbortext's ability to automate the process of assembling and publishing content makes our software especially useful to school systems that must publish fresh and accurate educational materials to a number of audiences with varying needs.
