The eSchoolPLUS student information system was named to the 2013 District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products. Featured products were nominated by K-12 educational leaders and administrators from across the country as those that have made a positive difference in their efforts. The list is selected by District Administration editors based on the quantity of nominations received per product, as well as an evaluation of product quality based upon an explanation of the nomination.

SunGard K-12 Education President and CEO George Pepper is honored by the recognition. “SunGard K-12 Education is proud to develop administrative software that supports our nation’s educators in helping to improve student achievement,” he said. “Every day, our team is focused on providing tools that make our customers’ jobs easier. eSchoolPLUS reflects our customers’ ideas and suggestions for the kinds of functionality they need from their student information system.”
