Introduction oregon sis icon
The Edupoint Synergy contract allows for 5 one year extensions beginning at the end of the fifth year. We are mid-way through the fourth year so the Oregon Student Information System (OSIS) steering committee is reviewing our past experiences with Edupoint and developing contract modification language.  

History
In the late fall of 2010 AAL, the developer of the eSIS student information system, was purchased by Pearson, a large multi-national corporation. eSIS users were informed that eSIS was to be discontinued and would no longer be maintained after July 1, 2012. All Oregon eSIS license holders were offered a one-to-one license exchange to move to the Pearson PowerSchool product along with reduced implementation fees. 

At the State Information Technology Managers meeting held on Friday, January 7, 2011, a steering committee was selected to lead the coordination and hiring of a project director, to oversee requirements gathering and, to steer the creation of an RFP for one or more student information systems meeting the needs of all Oregon school districts, ESDs and the Department of Education. The steering committee was comprised of Karla Hobbs (Multnomah ESD), Les Moore (Eugene SD), Kristen Duus (Salem-Keizer SD), Marita Ingalsbe (Portland SD) and, Rick Wahlstrom (Northwest Regional ESD). It should be noted that Salem-Keizer SD is participating as the license holder of another deprecated student information system owned by Pearson (SASI).

Edupoint Synergy was selected through the RFP process and has been implemented within many Oregon districts.
