As thought leaders in K-12 student information management, the founders of Edupoint have set the standard for
SIS solutions for almost thirty years. Our innovative solutions have been used by thousands of schools to manage millions of students.
Edupoint’s founder, Bob Weathers, has dedicated his life to K-12 student information management. Beginning as an IT Director for a large California school district, Bob created his first administrative software product for schools in the 1970s, and went on to develop several commercially successful K-12 software systems over the decades. He was an original developer of SASI and SASIxp, one of the all-time best-selling SIS solutions in the world. Bob, together with Tom McGrew, Edupoint’s Chief Technology Officer, and Rob Wilson, Edupoint’s President and Chief Innovation Officer, provide active thought leadership and steer the company as it follows in Bob’s legacy of success.
Edupoint’s mission, like the company itself, has evolved over the years. No longer are we simply focused on the management and reporting of student data, though that remains a core competency and focus. We recognize that today’s technologically advanced solutions must do much more than simply manage data. The true power of data comes when it is shared, real-time, with those that can use the information to inform decisions. And as such, our mission has expanded, to focus on harnessing both student and instructional data to inform teaching, increase collaboration and positively impact student success.
We believe the benefits of an effective K-12 education for every student to be self-evident.
We value and respect the educators and staffs that work in our country’s schools, and believe they deserve the best tools and support that we and others can provide them.
We believe the greatest value accrues to school systems and to our company when we work together as partners in an open, respectful, and collaborative manner.
We believe in the full up-front disclosure of all costs, efforts, and challenges that will be faced by a school system undertaking deep integration of information management technology into classrooms, schools, and administrative offices. When we contract to implement and support our solutions, our customers can count on us no matter what unexpected challenges may arise.
We believe that well designed and highly integrated information management technology, focused on both instruction and school operations and management, is one of the pillars for improving our country's K-12 education system.
