Flagstaff USD Expands Synergy Solution to Include LMS With Assessment

Posted on November 21, 2016

Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for K-12 student information and learning management, has been selected by Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) to implement the company’s LessonVUE® Curriculum Management and Synergy Assessment solutions and the Inspect® Item Bank that works seamlessly with Synergy Assessment. Synergy Assessment replaces Galileo by ATI in the northern Arizona district, which serves 10,000 students at 15 schools. 

“We needed an easy-to-navigate assessment solution that would allow us to input our own district-created assessments quickly and efficiently, deliver those assessments, and store that data securely so we could access it to see student growth over time,” said Dr. Robert Hagstrom, Director of Research and Assessment for FUSD. “We were already using Synergy for our student information system and gradebook, with everything fully integrated. Adding Synergy Assessment meant that tool would just ‘be there’ for teachers when they logged into their gradebook, and it provided the flexibility for teachers to have assessment results pushed directly to their gradebook. The ability for colleagues to share assessments, to create that collegiality and collaboration, was also attractive.

“Adding LessonVUE completes our learning management system. We can give students that digital experience they’re used to, with assignments and resources together on one page that can be shared with all students across a particular grade level. We can have that blended learning model where you do have a face to face teacher, but students help themselves to resources when it’s convenient for them. That’s a space students are going to thrive in.”

FUSD receives Synergy training, customer support, and ongoing assistance directly from Northern Arizona University’s Education Technology Consortium (ETC), a cooperative arrangement between the university and nearly 70 public and charter schools.

“We are pleased to strengthen our relationship with Flagstaff Unified School District through Northern Arizona University’s ETC,” said Bob Weathers, Founder & CEO of Edupoint. “With the LessonVUE Curriculum Management and Synergy Assessment solutions, Edupoint is providing Flagstaff the tools it needs to improve student outcomes and achievement, fully integrated with their existing SIS and gradebook. We look forward to supporting Flagstaff students’ success through our continuing partnership with ETC.”
