Perkiomen Valley School District in PA Selects Synergy Education Platform

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. -- Perkiomen Valley School District (PVSD) has selected the industry-leading Synergy(R) Education Platform by Edupoint(R) Educational Systems for its K-12 student information management needs. The district's Synergy solution will include Synergy Student Information System, Synergy Online Registration, and Synergy Special Education. PVSD serves over 5,500 students in the Philadelphia region.

With Synergy Education Platform, PVSD will get a comprehensive student data management ecosystem in which the SIS and all core student data management solutions talk to each other by design, sharing data in real time from a single database for a seamless user experience.

District leaders at PVSD became interested in Synergy after attending a demo at a neighboring school district. The SIS selection committee then evaluated Synergy against several other student information systems, involving as many as 60 participants from every stakeholder group. The committee selected Synergy from four finalists after a round of full-day demos.

Key considerations in Perkiomen Valley's selection of Synergy included the platform's overall flexibility, the ease of transition for special education, the robust suite of role-based mobile apps, and the partner relationship the district would have with Edupoint.

"From a technical perspective, a smooth implementation is critical, and the references we spoke to put my mind at ease about working with Edupoint," said Karthik Ganesh, Chief Information Officer at Perkiomen Valley. "Our special education team is pleased because Edupoint will be doing the heavy lifting on moving our documents over. Synergy will also help us improve our scheduling efficiency to recoup a significant amount of time for our scheduling staff, and we'll have the ability to provide real-time information to families through the parent portal."

"Perkiomen Valley School District can be expected to see many improvements with their migration to Synergy," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO of Edupoint, "from extensive Google integration in the gradebook to greater overall efficiency and ease of use. We are pleased to have PVSD come on board and look forward to continuing to serve additional districts in Pennsylvania."

One of the primary reasons we chose Synergy, and what we look forward to most, is that it represents this vision as an actual product."

Decision-makers at Indian Prairie engaged in an exhaustive, three-month search, thoroughly reviewing and vetting all potential options in an evaluation process that consisted of two rounds of demonstrations and the collection of nearly 60,000 data points.

Edupoint Announces 4th Annual ‘Partner for Life’ Award Co-Recipients: Oregon’s High Desert Education Service District and Beaverton School District

MESA, Ariz. -- Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for K-12 student information and learning management, is pleased to announce that Rachel Wente-Chaney, Chief Information Officer for High Desert Education Service District (HDESD) in Redmond, Oregon, and Steven Langford, Chief Information Officer for Beaverton School District (BSD) in Beaverton, Oregon, have been selected as co-recipients of the company's 2019 Partner For Life Award.

Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO of Edupoint, presented the awards at the Opening Session of the company's 2019 Synergy CONNECT conference in Anaheim, California, earlier this month.

Edupoint's partnerships with HDESD and BSD were instrumental in bringing about the Oregon Student Information System (OSIS) committee's 2012 selection of Synergy as Oregon's statewide student information system, representing more than 400,000 students.

"Rachel Wente-Chaney and Steve Langford are two early adopters who embodied the spirit of partnership that Edupoint considers one of the cornerstones of our business," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Office of Edupoint.

"They implemented Synergy at their districts before the statewide search effort and helped open many doors in the state adoption. The selection marked an important milestone for Edupoint, both in terms of our growth in the Pacific Northwest and as an affirmation of our maturity as a K-12 solutions provider and our potential growth nationwide. With this year's Partner for Life Award, we recognize Rachel and Steve for their ongoing commitment to Synergy and to the support of learning at their districts."

"Redmond School District was the first pilot district to work with us and with Edupoint to bring Synergy to Oregon," Wente-Chaney said. "My team has been supporting student information systems since 2009, and we provide everything from end user support - when a teacher needs to know how to take attendance or enter grades - all the way through patches, updates, and custom programming in Synergy. The OSIS team has also done great work with us over the years."

"We have some fantastic teams at Beaverton that support Synergy for our district of 41,000 students at 54 schools," Langford said. "Everything we do in IT is done together in teams, and that concept of collaboration and teamwork is something that we look for in our partners as well. We very much appreciate Edupoint's willingness to sit with us and explore new ways to give our students and staff time and information."

In recognition of Wente-Chaney and Langford's valued contributions, Edupoint has awarded $10,000 to each district to be granted as a student scholarship based on criteria of the district's choosing.

Hillsborough County Public Schools, Florida, Selects Synergy Education Platform

TAMPA, Fla. -- Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) has selected the industry-leading Synergy(R) Education Platform by Edupoint(R) Educational Systems for its K-12 student information management needs. The district's Synergy solution will include Synergy Student Information System and Synergy Special Education in a cloud-hosted environment. HCPS serves approximately 220,000 students in the West Central Florida area and is the eighth largest district in the country.

"It was time to retire our district-developed mainframe-based system and replace it with a modern, expandable solution," said Rick Laneau, General Manager of Information Technology for Hillsborough. "Giving parents and students better access to their educational records from anywhere at any time was a priority, and we determined that Synergy was strong in that area as well as being based on modern technology standards. We liked the fact that we can use the system's Ed-Fi and OneRoster compliance to consolidate our interfaces with third parties. Edupoint has large district experience in 20 other states, so we felt that the company would be capable of meeting our particular needs as a large Florida district."

In seeking a new system, Hillsborough County conducted a thorough evaluation process that lasted over a year. After verifying the need to replace the mainframe, the district put out a request for information to see what commercial products were available. Half a dozen vendors responded and gave onsite presentations to a committee of more than 50 stakeholders. The evaluation team built a list of district requirements based on those presentations, and HCPS issued a request for proposal. After evaluating submissions from six vendors over six months, the district selected Synergy Education Platform as the most feature-rich and cost-effective solution.

"With Synergy Education Platform, Hillsborough County Public Schools is getting a future-ready student data management solution that can not only expand and evolve as the district's needs change over time, but is also designed to maximize parent and student access and engagement," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "We are delighted to be serving the HCPS community and helping the district support families through the K-12 journey."

Bethel School District in Washington Selects Synergy Student Information System

SPANAWAY, Wash. -- Bethel School District (BSD) has selected the industry-leading Synergy(R) Student Information System (SIS) by Edupoint(R) Educational Systems for its K-12 student data management needs. The district's Synergy solution will include Synergy Online Registration and cloud hosting to serve over 19,000 K-12 students in the Seattle metropolitan area.

Decision-makers at Bethel began considering new data management options in response to an aging SIS and changes taking place with their existing support provider. After narrowing the field to Synergy SIS and one other product, the evaluation team spent six months learning about each product's capabilities, ensuring that every role and department in the district had an opportunity to provide feedback.

"We were on an explorer route, looking to discover what a new SIS could bring to our district and what it could support," said Michael Christianson, Chief Technology Officer at BSD. "We knew there were things we didn't even think about doing because we didn't know what to ask for. In the end we chose Synergy because we believed it would have the biggest impact on our staff in schools and on students. We especially liked the mature communication tools for involving parents and the mobile apps that enable principals, security, and other staff to manage anything they want to without having to be at a desk. We're an Apple district, so the fact that there are native iOS apps was a plus."

The evaluation team found Synergy to be teacher-focused without a lot of setup. Teachers have quick access to reports in the gradebook, and the flexibility in standards-based grading will allow different teachers to use different sets of standards. Secondary schools can stay with traditional grading now and move to standards-based grading later if needed.

"Bethel School District approached Edupoint with an open mind and allowed us to show them what student data management can be," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Bethel in empowering their staff and helping their students achieve."
