Edupoint Selects Genesee Intermediate School District in Michigan for 5th Annual Partner for Life Award

FLINT, Mich. -- Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for K-12 student information and learning management, is pleased to announce that Sue Gilliam, former Director of Technical Services for Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD), has been selected as the recipient of the company's 2020 Partner for Life Award. Bob Weathers, Edupoint Founder and CEO, and Rob Wilson, Edupoint President and Chief Innovation Officer, recently notified Gilliam about the award by phone.

GISD is an educational leader in Genesee County, Michigan, delivering high-quality, innovative educational programs and support services to students, parents, and educators across its consortium of districts. GISD partnered with Edupoint in 2012 when the district selected Synergy as the SIS provider for its member districts.

"When we first implemented Synergy, Bob Weathers came to visit and was surprised to find a small team with many new people," Sue Gilliam said. "Typically, we would have rolled out a project this size over three years, but everyone was so excited we decided to do it all at once. I was impressed with Bob and Rob Wilson from the get-go. There was so much integrity and helpfulness. They did whatever they could do to make us successful and it was huge to have that kind of support."

The Edupoint leadership team was impressed with Sue and GISD as well. During a period of rapid growth in 2014, Edupoint recruited GISD to provide Synergy training support to some of the company's implementing districts across the U.S. In 2016, GISD became Edupoint's Synergy support provider in Tennessee. The district's Technology & Media Services team currently provides support and training services to 34 districts and charter schools in Michigan and 37 districts in Tennessee.

"Edupoint saw us doing good things and their response was to reach out and ask us to do more with them," said Luke Wittum, Assistant Superintendent of Technology and Media Services. "That partnership has helped us grow as an organization, supporting our own systems right here in Genesee County and continuing to grow our expertise, which benefits our constituents. It's been a win-win partnership."

"Sue and GISD have been wonderful representatives for Edupoint," Bob Weathers said, "always willing to go above and beyond. Sue worked very closely with many different contacts here at Edupoint and her focus on relationship building led directly to the strong partnership we have today. We wish her all the best."

Sue Gilliam retired in July after 12 years with GISD. In recognition of Gilliam's and GISD's valued contributions, Edupoint has awarded $10,000 to GISD to be granted as a student scholarship based on criteria of the district's choosing.

Derry Township School District in Pennsylvania Selects Synergy Education Platform

HERSHEY, Pa. -- Derry Township School District (DTSD) has selected the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform by Edupoint® Educational Systems for its K-12 student information and learning management needs. The district's cloud-hosted Synergy solution will include Synergy Student Information System (SIS), Synergy MTSS, Synergy Assessment, and Synergy Special Education. Derry Township, an award-winning school district, serves approximately 3,500 students across five schools in South Central Pennsylvania.

Synergy Education Platform is a comprehensive student data management ecosystem that will help DTSD streamline processes and boost communication and collaboration across all sites while providing the real-time performance data needed to improve learning outcomes for students.

DTSD leadership launched a Request for Proposal Process (RFP) to select a new student data management solution when the district's previous SIS began to lag significantly behind technology trends. After evaluating four solutions against an extensive list of requirements, performing software demonstrations, and checking references, the evaluation team decided unanimously in favor of Synergy.

"The mobile apps were a huge sell," said David Sweigert, Director of Infrastructure Technology at Derry Township. "Parents and students are our customers, and now we'll be able to give them a reliable way to look at grades, assignments, absences, the calendar, and all the things they want to see. The available integrations are also really nice, and the reporting tool is much more intuitive than what we've had. Getting a favorable review from a nearby regional technology leader, School District of Lancaster, helped tip the scales as well, because they have always been ahead of the curve with their student information system, and we knew they had done their homework."

"By selecting Synergy Education Platform, Derry Township School District is getting not only a powerful and flexible student data management solution that will grow with their needs, but also, in Edupoint, a partner with a track record of continuous innovation," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with DTSD, meeting their real-world needs as we evolve and adapt together to new trends in education and technology."

Lincoln County School District in Oregon Selects Synergy Education Platform

NEWPORT, Ore. -- Lincoln County School District (LCSD) has selected the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform by Edupoint® Educational Systems for its K-12 student information and learning management needs. The district's cloud-hosted Synergy solution will include Synergy Student Information System (SIS), Synergy Online Registration, and Synergy Special Education. LCSD serves over 5,500 students across 14 schools on the Oregon coast.

Lincoln County's move to Synergy began when Superintendent Dr. Karen Gray asked Technology Director Vince Dye to research Synergy as a possible replacement for the district's SIS. Dr. Gray and several other administrators had come to LCSD from Oregon districts that used Synergy and believed that Lincoln County could benefit from what the platform had to offer. Dye visited several Synergy districts, attended a regional Synergy user conference, and thoroughly analyzed the functionality and utility of both Synergy and the district's existing SIS before determining that Synergy had more of the cutting-edge features and functionality LCSD needed.

Synergy is a comprehensive student data management ecosystem, accessed through a single interface with one login and real-time data systemwide. Synergy will simplify processes across the district, including the generation of a key LCSD report that pulls together behavior, attendance, and grade data that teachers can use for getting students to their teaching and learning targets.

"We have to be able to monitor those indicators to bring interventions to students so they can be successful," Dye said. "We've been making continuous improvements in the technology of our district both in front and behind the scenes and this will be a monumental step in taking our district to the next level. The student information system we have been using is good, but Synergy is the best. I'm excited about the opportunity we have to bring it on."

"This is the kind of student information system and dashboard our teachers, families, and students deserve," said Dr. Karen Gray, Superintendent at LCSD. "Having gone through the conversion to Synergy in another school district, it was the best thing we ever did. Synergy is even better in 2020, very much on the cutting edge and exactly where Lincoln County School District should be. It is going to save us a lot of time and energy."

"With Synergy Education Platform, Lincoln County School District is getting a seamlessly integrated student data management solution with a robust, evolving feature set," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Officer at Edupoint. "Synergy will make it easier for district users to do things they were already doing and also make it possible to do new things they have never done. We are pleased to join with LCSD in a long-term partnership focused on continuous improvement and improved student outcomes."

Virginia Preschool Educator Offers Free Curriculum for Parents Amid Pandemic Woes

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- The best teachers truly care about their students' lives both inside and outside the classroom, and Denise Shields of Creative Kids Preschool -- and now also Creative Kids Virtual Preschool -- is proving that by her actions during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a press release from the school.

Shields, a longtime educator based in Fredericksburg, Va., has announced that she is offering to parents, at no charge, her virtual preschool curriculum for children ages 3-6 including 40 core online lessons, 40 at-home crafts & projects, and 40 online story time books to supplement learning. She knows how much the assistance is needed for parents with young children at home, due to social distancing to guard against the spread of COVID-19.

Shields founded Creative Kids Preschool in 2011. She sees teaching as her calling and not just a career.

"I've been teaching preschoolers out of my home right here in Fredericksburg, Va., for the past 12 years," Shields said. "What an honor and privilege it has been to teach and prepare hundreds of young boys and girls for their next journey to kindergarten and beyond.

"This past spring, like most schools nationwide, I had to abruptly shut down my preschool because of COVID-19. It was devastating at first; Creative Kids Preschool is my life and passion and I love my preschoolers," she said.

"However, I quickly put together a solid online preschool program for my pre-k students and together we made the adjustment," Shields added. "I've decided to share my entire fall online preschool program at no charge."

Through this effort, Shields and Creative Kids Virtual Preschool offers a full quarterly curriculum with 40 full-length preschool lessons that include activities, educational games and story time books. Each virtual lesson is about 30 minutes long. They are theme-based, and the themes include Animals, Colors, Farm Life, Insects, Dinosaurs, Seasons, Nutrition and Pets.

At Creative Kids, students get to know Miss Denise and Ollie The Crow as they lead children in daily 30-minute virtual online learning using art, music, puppetry and engaging stories to help the youth develop the skills needed for kindergarten and set the foundation for future learning.

"Your child will love the educational, fun and stimulating theme-based lessons, giving them the early tools and support they need for their healthy development," said Shields.

Next Gen Acquires Entrepreneurship Organization to Expand Educational Reach

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Few understand the importance of fostering entrepreneurship at an early age quite like Dylan Gambardella and Justin Lafazan. Next Gen's co-founders credit their entrepreneurial success to their learnings - and failures - in launching businesses while still in high school. That is why Next Gen HQ is announcing its acquisition of TrepStart Independent Youth to encourage high school entrepreneurship.

The organization aims to introduce students to entrepreneurship in a unique and unconventional way, allowing students to better engage while developing a deeper understanding of their life goals.

"We first learned of TrepStart through members of our Next Gen community who joined the annual conference," commented Lafazan, Co-CEO of Next Gen HQ. "They recognized synergies between our missions, which became apparent to our team immediately upon learning more."

After attending an event in St. Louis and meeting TrepStart's leadership, the Next Gen team knew this would be a fruitful opportunity to reach and impact thousands of new young entrepreneurs.

Tanya Hamilton, Founder and Executive Director of TrepStart Independent Youth, agreed: "I am grateful that after 10-years of empowering thousands of teens nationwide, we were able to find such a great organization in Next Gen HQ to continue our mission.

Phenomenology Virtually Connects Broadway Talent to Public Schools During COVID-19

FREDERICK, Md. -- Phenomenology, Inc., an innovative production model in the performing arts, is facilitating connections between Broadway performers and the Academy of Fine Arts, which brings together more than 80 students across 10 public high schools who are interested in learning visual art, dance, music and theatre.

As public school programs across the United States struggle to establish meaningful curriculum due to remote and socially-distanced learning, caused by the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency, Phenomenology decided to take action to help bring master class programming to the AFA, featuring numerous Broadway performers, including, Jon Rua ("Hamilton"), Matt Wolpe ("Finding Neverland"), Jawan Jackson ("Ain't Too Proud"), Ginna Claire Mason ("Wicked") and others.

"As a corridor for the performing arts, the central mission of Phenomenology is to bring Broadway talent, projects and opportunities to Frederick, Maryland," said Jeffery Keilholtz, CEO/Artistic Director of Phenomenology. "Because of the leadership structure of our organization, Phenomenology is uniquely positioned to help connect AFA students to many of the most exciting performers on Broadway, and we are committed to increasing those opportunities for students in this new school year in a safe and effective way."

Broadway performers will conduct master classes for AFA students in remote fashion, where students and performers connect with each other online and in real time.

The AFA is an artistic community and career pathway program for Frederick County Public School students in grades 10-12. According to AFA Coordinator, Jonathan Kurtz, students participate in rigorous instruction that prepares them to enter some of the most demanding collegiate and professional arts programs. Some AFA classes are also for college credit.

"Phenomenology is providing access to Broadway professionals given that travel is not a possibility in our COVID-19 environment," says Kurtz. "Students are still able to learn from the experience of professionals and engage with them, thanks to the connections that Phenomenology provides."

Earlier in 2020, Phenomenology worked with AFA and area schools to facilitate a virtual performance opportunity for Maryland students by having Jackson ("Ain't Too Proud"), as their audience. Jackson also provided one-on-one insight with many of the student performers. Phenomenology also arranged to have Mason ("Wicked"), as a surprise AFA commencement speaker for graduating students in 2020.

Jackson and Mason are working with AFA students again, thanks to this new, more robust initiative facilitated by Phenomenology.

About Phenomenology, Inc.:

Phenomenology, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is an innovative production model to raise the quality of life for performing artists and technicians by creating meaningful partnerships in the entertainment industry - coupled with the production of high-value projects - to generate a first-of-its-kind corridor of professional activity between Frederick, Maryland and major media markets.
