Edupoint® Educational Systems, a leading student information system (SIS) solution for the national K-12 market, has been selected by Spotsylvania County Public Schools to implement its Synergy® Education Platform. Seeking to replace a legacy system that no longer met district needs, Spotsylvania sought a system that included not only a rich SIS feature set, but also integrated special education functionality and role-based mobile applications.
Spotsylvania County Public Schools, located in northern Virginia, needed a modern solution to support the district’s 24,000 students across 34 campuses. After extensive solution demonstrations to multiple user groups – including teachers, office staff, and district administrators – the district selected Synergy for its rich SIS feature set, streamlined state reporting, and role-based dashboards that place relevant information right at an individual user’s fingertips. The Synergy® Special Education (SE) module will provide the district with robust collaboration tools and customized workflows to streamline the special education process, while powerful web and mobile applications ensure parents and students are engaged in the education process with real-time information about what’s happening in the classroom, including current grades and automatic alerts about attendance and discipline issues.
“We are excited to be working with Spotsylvania County Public Schools as they implement the Synergy Education Platform,” says Rob Wilson, Edupoint’s President and Chief Innovation Officer. “In this high-achieving district, Synergy will not only engage parents in the education process, but also provide teachers immediate insight into student performance to inform instruction and maximize teaching effectiveness. We look forward to working closely with Spotsylvania as their long-term student data management partner.”
With Spotsylvania’s selection of Synergy, Edupoint continues its growth within Virginia, and now currently supports over 40% of the state’s K-12 student population. The district plans to go live with the Synergy Education Platform in time for the 2014/2015 academic year.
