   Poudre School District Selects Edupoint's Synergy Student
   Information System

   IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) - Edupoint
   (TM) Educational Systems, a leading student information system (SIS)
   solutions provider to the national K-12 market, has been selected by
   Poudre School District to implement its Synergy(R) 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. After a comprehensive review of leading SIS solutions,
   the district selected Edupoint based on the robust features and
   benefits of the integrated Synergy solution and the company's well-
   regarded support services.

   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."

   "We're excited to add Poudre School District - our second Colorado client - to the Edupoint family," said Rob Wilson, President
   and COO of Edupoint. "The Synergy Education Platform is an ideal solution for growing school districts in this era of constantly
   changing regulatory requirements and demand for improved student outcomes. Synergy lets a district meet today's
   requirements with tools to better manage students and integrate parents into the entire educational process, while it provides a
   powerful development and enterprise integration platform for the future. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial
   relationship with Poudre."

   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.
