IRVINE, Calif. (CitizenWire) — Edupoint™ Educational Systems, a leading student information system (SIS) solutions provider to the national K-12 market, has been selected to implement its newest solution, LessonVUE™ curriculum management, at Mesa Public Schools (MPS). LessonVUE is designed to empower educators and administrators to drive classroom achievement through better management, alignment and analysis of curriculum while providing data to inform instructional decisions.
Mesa Public Schools (MPS) is the largest district in Arizona and has earned national recognition for excellence and innovation in public schools. It was named one of the top ten big city districts by GreatSchools.org, and five MPS high schools were honored in the 2010 Best High Schools Search by U.S. News & World Report. Edupoint has long been one of the district’s long-trusted technology partners, providing both its student information management, via GENESIS, and special education data management, via GENESEA, for several years.
“The addition of LessonVUE to our GENESIS technology suite makes perfect sense for the district,” said Lawrence Dutcher, Executive Director of Mesa Public Schools Information Technology. “We gain powerful new curriculum management capabilities to help us with intervention planning, specialized instruction and student performance analysis , and because it’s a module within GENESIS, the solution is fully integrated with the district’s other data management systems.”
The LessonVUE curriculum management solution is the newest offering from Edupoint and its selection by MPS validates the company’s product direction. Rob Wilson, President of Edupoint, announced the expanded relationship. “With the addition of LessonVUE, Mesa Public Schools becomes the first district to deploy the complete Edupoint solution suite – GENESIS™ SIS, GENESEA™ Special Education management, TeacherVUE™ grade book, ParentVUE™ / StudentVUE™ web portals, and now, LessonVUE. Mesa Public has been an important part of Edupoint’s success for many years, and we look forward to hearing the results it achieves with its use LessonVUE throughout the district.”
LessonVUE allows administrators to plan and manage the district’s curriculum, so that students receive a consistent educational experience across all schools and assigned teachers. Using LessonVUE, teachers and administrators create a framework of courses, units, lesson plans, and supplemental materials that can be aligned to state and local standards, enrolled by course or grade levels, and taught by all or a subset of teachers in the district. Through that framework, LessonVUE is able to measure and track student progress and assess the effectiveness of specific curricula and lesson plans, so that, ultimately, teaching strategies can be adjusted to ensure students achieve.
Mesa Public Schools has begun implementing LessonVUE within its GENESIS SIS environment.
