Linn Benton Lincoln Education Service District in Oregon Selects Synergy Education Platform

ALBANY, Ore. -- Edupoint Educational Systems announced today that Linn Benton Lincoln Education Service District (LBL ESD) has selected the company's industry-leading Synergy® Student Education Platform for its K-12 student information and learning management needs. The consortium's Synergy solution will include Synergy Student Information System (SIS), Synergy Online Registration, Synergy MTSS, Synergy Analytics, and Synergy Special Education (SE). LBL ESD serves over 33,000 students across 12 school districts and more than 89 schools in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln counties.

Linn Benton Lincoln ESD leadership began to look seriously at replacing their in-house SIS after noting significant advances made within the student data management industry in recent years. The consortium issued an RFP and embarked on a rigorous three-round evaluation process, narrowing the pool of contenders based on the ability of each system to meet an extensive list of requirements. The evaluation team decided on two finalists following a series of user-focused product demonstrations and selected Synergy Education Platform in the final round after consulting with numerous districts using each solution. The evaluation process included users with a broad range of roles and job titles, with participants from all 12 component districts.

Synergy Education Platform is a comprehensive student data management ecosystem that provides the real-time performance data educators need to improve learning outcomes for students while also helping districts streamline processes, improve communication, and increase collaboration. Synergy provides student information management, online registration, learning management, assessment, MTSS, special education, and analytics in one seamless platform that includes a powerful suite of native, role-based mobile apps.

"Of the many products we looked at, Synergy stood out not only for its functional capabilities but also for its intuitive design and the ability for users - including parents - to do everything in once place," said Tim Jones, Deputy Information Technology Manager at LBL ESD. "We offer a fully-fledged helpdesk to all of our districts, so we wanted not only a SIS that would work well for our users, but also a partnership that would enable us to provide the level of support that our districts are accustomed to receiving. After speaking with Edupoint, we felt we had found that partner."

"Through Linn Benton Lincoln ESD's selection of Synergy Education Platform, the consortium's component districts and schools will have the opportunity to adopt a powerful, centralized data management ecosystem with an extensive toolset rich in advanced features," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "We look forward to partnering with the district over the long term to provide users with a robust, evolving data management system that supports positive learning outcomes for all students."

Introducing the First Digital App of Connected, Arts-centered Learning for Kindergarteners

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Creative Blueprint, launching 2/22/22, is the only EdTech company that connects art-based learning to the national education standards and measures students' progress. We address the problem of low student engagement by making arts-centered learning accessible to parents and teachers.

Students are navigating a hybrid classroom environment and parents are looking for simple ways to supplement their kids learning on and off the screen. Creative Blueprint strives to fill the gaps in mainstream education so that students can have the financial, social, and professional skills they need to achieve their goals and create the impact they want to see in the world. Students should feel confident, capable, and empowered to expand their knowledge beyond the confines of their classroom.

Kids learn in a variety of ways that aren't always catered to in school. Because mainstream education is outdated and inherently inequitable, Creative Blueprint connects creative and critical thinking skills to school curriculum in order to help them succeed in a rapidly changing world. When you identify and respond to your student's intelligence and learning style, you help them approach the world on their terms. Playing to their strengths can make practicing new skills less frustrating. Ultimately, helping them develop a lifelong love of learning.

By infusing the national education standards into hands-on projects, students build on the shared goals of their classroom while exploring concepts in fun, new ways that expand their understanding making students more likely to succeed in a rapidly changing world by better equipping them with the 21st-century skills that are needed to solve complex problems.

In the app users can search from a library of 30-minute projects that make learning simple by:

* Watching video directions for every project

* Finding projects that only use items you already have

* Focusing on specific skills

* Connecting to the core curriculum

* Tracking progress through assessments

Parents can sign up for a free subscription using code CBLAUNCH222 at check out. Teacher accounts are always free. We're launching with 60 projects for kindergarten but that's just the beginning.

Edupoint Selects Kyrene School District for 6th Annual Partner for Life Award

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 Kyrene School District (KSD) has been selected as the recipient of the company's 2021 Partner for Life Award. Edupoint Founder and CEO Bob Weathers presented the award to Damian Nichols, Executive Director of Information Technology for KSD, at the 2021 Synergy Connect Users Conference last month in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Kyrene School District serves a diverse population of approximately 18,000 students across 26 schools in five municipalities. The district's information technology team provides broad support for everything from classroom devices to the network and infrastructure technology they rely on, with a focus on providing the best possible services to everyone in the KSD community.

For the 2020-21 school year, Kyrene School District launched Kyrene Digital Academy, an all-online K-8 school with live instruction following the same daily bell schedule used by other schools in the district. The move presented challenges for everyone involved, requiring flexibility from parents and adaptability from students and teachers, who had to learn new ways of doing things outside of a traditional classroom setting.

"One of the first things we had to do was nail down the tools that we were going to use," said Dr. Kyle Ross, Principal at Kyrene Digital Academy. "We knew we needed to call on our existing partnerships in order to make it as seamless as possible."

"It has been a huge team effort to make sure everything went off without a hitch and learning continued," Nichols said. "Edupoint was quick to react and make sure that the tools we were using integrated together so that students didn't have to go to three or four different systems in order to attend class online. They were flexible in receiving feedback and making changes to the products we were depending on. Because of that partnership, we really set students and staff up for success."

"Kyrene joined the Edupoint family as one of our first client districts in 2005," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "Following their initial success with Synergy SIS, the district has embraced one new module after another and now runs the full Synergy ecosystem, enjoying the many user-experience and data-flow benefits it provides. All along the way Kyrene has been an enthusiastic partner, continually providing us with invaluable feedback that has helped make the Synergy platform better for every user. I am thrilled to recognize Kyrene School District as this year's Partner for Life Award recipient."

Edupoint has awarded $10,000 to Kyrene School District to be granted as a student scholarship.

Adding 60 Text-to-Speech Voices, Narakeet Enables Educators To Easily Create Video Lessons in Regional Dialects

WOKING, U.K. -- Remote and virtual learning environments are putting educators under pressure to create engaging video materials, yet few teachers have the equipment or skills to record professional audio. Adding 60 new voices, Narakeet this week enabled educators to easily create video lessons and voiceovers in 40 languages and regional dialects.

NCTQ studies found that teachers spend 45 minutes on average planning lessons. Having to record audio and edit videos puts additional pressure on already busy schedules, often requiring hours of extra work per day. Neural AI text-to-speech systems, with natural sounding voices, offer a compelling alternative to recorded audio, cutting preparation time from hours to minutes. Until recently, AI voices only represented major language variants, limiting the effectiveness of this approach. According to Statista research, accent or dialect issues are the second biggest barrier to adoption for voice technology in 2021, affecting 66% of respondents.

"Students like to hear voices that sound like them. They engage better with content in regional dialects. Using our new voices, educators can make video lessons that speak to their audience much more effectively," said Gojko Adzic, founder of Narakeet.

Narakeet is a text-to-speech video maker that turns PowerPoint slides into narrated videos. This week's update brings support for English variants including South African, Irish, Nigerian and Filipino voices; French with Swiss, Canadian and Belgian dialects; Spanish with Mexican and Puerto Rican variants and improved Brazilian Portuguese and Indian English.

"Combined with the recent addition of Swiss German and New Zealand English, Narakeet now has a rich collection of local dialects in many popular languages, and one the largest collections of neural text-to-speech generators," said Adzic. "Some of our competitors may offer a larger list of options, but they include older technology which cannot mimic human speech, and often provide the same voice with regional variants. Narakeet does not reuse voices across local variants, so each voice is unique."

According to MarketsandMarkets research, the text-to-speech market was valued at USD 2.0 billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD 5.0 billion by 2026, driven by the rising demand for handheld devices and increased investment in government spending on education. The COVID-19 pandemic caused a significant growth in demand for cloud-based solutions, especially important for schools as they shifted from in-person education to remote, virtual learning environments and mixed educational models.

Alfvén & Didrikson is drawing from experience of scaling global success stories such as Trustly, Acast, Quinyx and Mentimeter, in helping Kognity succeed in this next phase of its journey.

State College Area School District in Pennsylvania Selects Synergy Student Information System

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- State College Area School District (SCASD) has selected the industry-leading Synergy® Student Information System (SIS) by Edupoint® Educational Systems for its K-12 student information and learning management needs, replacing eSchoolPlus™ SIS. The district's Synergy solution will include Synergy SIS and Synergy Online Registration in a cloud-hosted environment. SCASD serves nearly 7,000 students across 12 schools in central Pennsylvania.

Synergy Education Platform is a comprehensive student data management ecosystem, seamlessly integrated by design, that helps districts streamline processes and boost communication and collaboration across all sites while providing the real-time performance data needed to improve learning outcomes for students. SCASD will benefit from the system's robust teacher functionality, built-in email for communicating with parents and students, and Synergy state reporting tools that will save staff time by automating processes that were previously manual. The Synergy mobile app suite will boost mobility and autonomy for all users, making information more accessible to parents and enabling high school students to check in on campus with a swipe of their student ID.

SCASD's Information Technology leadership convened a 31-member steering committee to evaluate available student information systems based on their ability to meet core requirements and compatibility with systems already in place. For the final round of demos, the committee included stakeholder teams representing a broad variety of job titles from across the district and gathered feedback, which came back overwhelmingly in favor of Synergy.

"We were looking for a student information system that would give us everything in one place or easily integrate with other systems, and Synergy scored high in both of those areas," said Justin Hetrick, Director of Technology at SCASD. "The quality of the support we would receive was also critical, so we worked with several Synergy districts during the evaluation process verify that that requirement would be met. We're in the implementation phase right now and are very happy with the decision we made."

"With Synergy SIS, State College Area School District has chosen a powerful, innovative solution that will evolve with the district as its student data and learning management needs change over time," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "We are pleased to welcome the district to the Synergy family and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership that caters to the needs of end users and supports educators in helping students succeed."

The 37 finalists represent companies, products, and people that have gone the extra mile in response to COVID-19 in the Business and Education Technology sectors. Winners will be announced during the CODiE Award Winner announcement celebrations, on June 22 and June 23, 2021.

Acknowledged as the premier awards program for the software and information industries for over 35 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries.

"This year, these leaders helped our nation respond to the historic pandemic, literally enabling the continuity of our education system and the very survival of businesses, large and small," said Jeff Joseph, SIIA President. "Congratulations to this year's finalists for demonstrating the vitality, resilience, and importance of business-to-business and education technology."

Synergy® Education Platform unites multiple K-12 data management solutions in one seamless ecosystem, creating systemwide data connections that help improve administrative processes and learning outcomes without the need for third-party system integrations. Synergy streamlines the management of student information, remote and on-site learning, assessment, MTSS, special education, and analytics to help districts personalize learning, advance equity, and promote student achievement.

Some of the needs Synergy has helped districts meet during the pandemic include:
* Adapting to new challenges as they arise, often with urgency and little notice, such as the quick transition from in-person to remote learning, hybrid scheduling, meeting new state reporting requirements, and providing contactless enrollment to families
* Monitoring student health for in-person learning
* Responding to COVID outbreaks during in-person learning
* Delivering engaging and effective instruction to remote and hybrid learners and tracking student engagement
* Empowering teachers to teach effectively from home
* Identifying at-risk students, managing interventions, and tracking progress
* Communicating frequently with parents in their language of choice and supporting them as they support their students learning at home
* Helping teachers understand the whole student - even students they have never met in person
* Understanding and addressing the impact of the pandemic on student learning progress
* Assessing student learning and analyzing results at the student, class, school, and district level
* Preparing for the return to in-person learning

As a partner, Edupoint has proactively anticipated customer needs, shifting nimbly to a new set of "pandemic priorities" and making a significant investment in product development to rapidly deliver solutions such as contact tracing, one-click video conferencing, and much more.

"During an incredibly difficult year, Edupoint has helped our partner districts navigate truly uncharted waters," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Officer at Edupoint. "Not only have our districts found a way to navigate the challenges, but many have excelled. We've seen this not only in our third-party satisfaction surveys, but in the direct feedback we have received from our partners. The strength of our client relationships and ongoing open communication has allowed us to successfully address our partners' urgent needs. We are pleased to share this meaningful recognition with the entire Synergy family."

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Finalists were selected by teams of expert judges and represent the most impactful initiatives from software, content, media, financial information and educational technology companies. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists and account for 80% of the overall score. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

MESA, Ariz. -- Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for student information and learning management, awarded technology grants to six client districts as part of the inaugural Synergy Achievement Awards in November. The recipients were selected based on the impact of their nominated initiatives and announced at the company's Virtual Week event in November.

District nominations spanned a wide range of achievements, with several related to pandemic response. One rural district was able to quickly transition to asynchronous distance learning for alternative education students in order to prevent an anticipated 80% loss of enrollment during a stay-at-home order. Another district created a flexible IEP for students in remote or hybrid learning environments.

"Our partner districts are out there doing great things every day, and this year's Synergy Achievement Awards have given us a bigger window into their successes," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Officer at Edupoint. "It's been inspiring to see districts skillfully leveraging Synergy tools to adapt to the unusual and challenging conditions we have all been facing this year. We are thrilled to be continuing the awards program on an annual basis."

The districts selected to receive technology grants were Kingman Unified School District #20 (AZ), Empower College Prep (AZ), Charles County Public Schools (MD), Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District (AK), Clark-Pleasant Community Schools Corporation (IN), and Chesapeake Public Schools (VA).
