State College, PA July 1, 2009—Schoolwires is offering significant savings on its premier suite of solutions and services designed to help districts realize the value of the strongest, safest and most effective website and community management solutions, the company announced today. Schoolwires is one of the nation’s leading providers of strategic online solutions for building stronger school communities, more effective schools and greater student success.
The 2009 Value Bundle is a specially-priced solution suite that includes the industry-leading Schoolwires platform being used by more than 1,000 districts to help engage students through online resources, empower teachers through online classroom collaboration tools, and inform community members through dynamic web content. Integrated within the Schoolwires platform is a digital file sharing solution that is designed to increase opportunities for collaboration within and beyond the classroom as well as a service request management solution that is designed to ease the process of requesting and tracking service requests across the district. The specially-priced suite also includes a flexible package of professional services credits for districts to use as they choose to meet their unique professional development needs.
Natomas Unified School District (USD) in California purchased the complete turnkey suite of Schoolwires solutions to meet the communication and collaboration needs of its large district population of 12,175 students. “We have seen tremendous value already, in part because Schoolwires offers optimal pricing for the full suite, but also due to the faster adoption and flexibility that comes with this comprehensive, easy-to-use solution,” said Joe Jenkins, chief technology officer at Natomas USD. “Since we implemented the Schoolwires suite, Natomas has increased and enhanced its communications capabilities significantly, and adoption has skyrocketed due to ease of access of all applications across the platform. Licensing this specially-priced suite is the most cost-effective, sustainable and smart approach, even if a district does not have immediate plans to implement the entire suite immediately.”
“Schoolwires understands that budgets are tight and dollars need to be stretched. By providing this robust solutions suite with favorable pricing—the 2009 Value Bundle—we hope to make it easier and more affordable for districts to connect with their communities. Because of the economic times we are facing, getting more connected is a strategic imperative for every superintendent who believes community and parental involvement is key to the district’s success,” said Edward S. Marflak, founder and CEO of Schoolwires.
