Northeastern Regional Information Center (New York) to Offer Synergy Education Platform to Member Districts

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Northeastern Regional Information Center (NERIC), a division of Capital Region BOCES, has contracted with Edupoint® Educational Systems to offer the company's industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform to its customers. The cooperative educational organization serves 135 school districts and seven BOCES across 17 counties in New York's Capital Region and northward.

NERIC leadership began considering an addition to their menu of student data management systems after observing the trend toward consolidation in the education technology marketplace. The evaluation team used a multi-step RFP process to identify potential vendors and solutions, inviting customers to the final demos and asking them to rank each solution. The team ultimately elected to partner with Edupoint to add Synergy to NERIC's student information system offerings, taking into consideration both the customer survey results and the impression that the system made on the organization's staff.

Synergy Education Platform is a comprehensive student information and learning 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 helps districts manage student information, online registration, student learning, assessment, MTSS, special education, and analytics in one seamless platform that includes a powerful suite of native, role-based mobile apps.

"Our team and our customers were impressed with Synergy," said Jeffrey Luks, Manager of Student Services at NERIC. "Our customers especially liked the system's integration potential and ease of use for teachers, and there is interest around the larger Synergy ecosystem as well, notably the MTSS module. We're excited about the future and the partnership that we have with Edupoint on the Synergy platform."

"NERIC customers selecting Synergy as their student information system will get comprehensive functionality, the flexibility to adapt and evolve the system as their needs change, and solid integration with a diverse portfolio of third-party applications," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Officer at Edupoint. "We are pleased to partner with NERIC in providing powerful data management capabilities to school districts in Northeastern New York."

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."

Edupoint Enters Alaska with the Matanuska-Susitna School District’s Selection of Synergy Education Platform

PALMER, Alaska -- Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District (MSBSD) selected Edupoint(R) Educational Systems to implement the district's industry-leading Synergy(R) Education Platform. The district's Synergy solution will include the full suite of Synergy modules - Synergy Student Information System, Synergy Learning Management System with RTI/MTSS and Assessment, Synergy Special Education, and Synergy Analytics. MSBSD is the second-largest school district in Alaska, serving approximately 19,000 students across 47 schools near Anchorage.

"Our vision was to acquire a new SIS that was modern and responsive, would evolve with technology changes and the changing needs of K-12 education, and would help us improve efficiency and optimize our costs while continuing to prepare all students for success," said Justin Michaud, Senior Program Manager, IT, at MSBSD.

"Our other goal was finding a company that would partner with us strategically. When you take students, staff, and parents into account, our new system will touch over 30,000 people, so we needed a partner that would work with us over time to continue meeting our users' diverse and growing needs. We determined that Edupoint would be the best partner to ensure that we can do that."

With Synergy Education Platform, MSBSD will be launching not just a powerful SIS, but a comprehensive ecosystem that will enable users to seamlessly manage everything from core student data to special education processes, with online registration, learning and assessment management, RTI/MTSS management, in-depth, interactive analytics, and engaging web and mobile portals for parents and students.

The role-based mobile apps included with Synergy - ParentVUE, StudentVUE, TeachverVUE, AdminVUE, HealthVUE, CounselVUE, and SE VUE - will enable the district to provide an innovative mode of access for end users and to better serve families who depend on mobile devices rather than computers.

The MSBSD Evaluation Team selected Synergy following a request for proposal (RFP) process that included a competitive two-day product evaluation and gathered input from a 30-person focus group of subject matter experts from across the district.

"Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District needed a forward-thinking data management solution with broad functionality and found that in Synergy Education Platform," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Officer at Edupoint. "We are pleased to be partnering with Mat-Su for the long term to support student success and look forward to welcoming additional Alaska districts to the Synergy family."
