Edupoint Honors First-Ever Synergy Achievement Award Recipients in Online Event
Company recognizes outstanding client success stories with technology grants
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.
The awards program attracted nominations from Edupoint partner districts of all sizes across the country. Districts were invited to submit any number of nominations in three categories: Process Improvement, Student Outcomes, and Communication & Collaboration.
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). The grants ranged from $2,500 to $5,000.Chesapeake designed a flexible IEP to address service delivery during the pandemic.
