ADE Announces Opt-In Statewide Student Information System Contract Award - 7/16/2014

Please see the official letter from the Superintendent on


Dear Fellow Educators,

The Arizona Department of Education is pleased to announce that Edupoint Educational Systems, Inc., has been awarded the contract to provide a Statewide Student Information System. We asked you what technological solutions you needed to effectively educate Arizona’s students and this contract directly answers one of your most critical areas of need—an affordable student information system.

As described in the Arizona Education Learning and Accountability System (AELAS) Business Case, more than two-thirds of LEAs annually pay between $18 and $57 per user for education software systems of varying capabilities. The Statewide Student Information System (SSIS) provides extensive student management functions and integration with ADE systems for an annual cost of $10 or less per student. ADE will also provide ongoing support to all LEAs that opt for the new SSIS, guaranteeing seamless compatibility with other AELAS systems and technologies.

ADE is committed to supporting every school and every educator with the resources they need to help students reach their goals. A key component of the AELAS initiative, the Edupoint-powered SSIS features powerful administrative and reporting capabilities. The SSIS’s function as your portal to other AELAS services will become even more valuable as we roll out additional dashboards in AZDash, streamline SAIS reporting through AzEDS, and offer more learning management and collaborations tools.

Thank you for your ongoing support and enthusiasm for the education transformations we are striving to achieve through AELAS and other agency initiatives.  Our AELAS outreach team will be sharing more detailed information about pricing and opportunities to opt in to the SSIS over the summer.  In the meantime, you can contact Linda Harris via email at or by phone at (602) 542-3071 for more information.
