Edupoint™ Educational Systems, a student information system (SIS) solutions provider to the national K-12 market, has been selected by Poudre School District to implement its Synergy® SIS solution. The centralized web-based system will connect the district’s schools and administration facilities to serve students, their parents, teachers, and district staff.

Poudre School District provides K-12 public education for the region surrounding Fort Collins, Colorado. It is a growing area, with more than 27,000 students enrolled in 52 campuses. To meet increasing user demands and reporting requirements over the years, the district had enhanced their existing SIS system in-house to the point that it had become too difficult and costly to support. Rather than continue that investment, the district issued an RFP and undertook a formal review of replacement systems. The review process included detailed analysis of leading SIS solutions and two rounds of product demonstrations attended by representatives of the district’s diverse user groups. Edupoint and the Synergy SIS solution were determined to best meet the District’s defined requirements.

“Our users had tough questions, but Edupoint answered all of them,” said Don Begin, Poudre Director of Information Technology. “In the end, the district chose the Synergy system for its flexibility – we believe our requirements will grow and change in the future, and the architecture of the Synergy system fully supports rapid application development. Its integration of the SIS module with the electronic Gradebook, which are two separate solutions in our current system, will improve classroom performance and enhance communications with students and parents.”

The Poudre School District has begun implementation of the Synergy system, and all district facilities will be live on the system in time for the start of the 2013/2014 term.
