County Wide Failure of Student Information System Impacts Automated Attendance Calls by Randy Trani

This morning our school district and most of the school districts served by the Multnomah County Educational Service District were notified that a system update of the student information system, Synergy, had caused a catastrophic failure. Technicians at the MESD are working to fix the problem.  It is not known when the system will be rebooted.  Until Synergy is restored school districts are unable to make automated attendance calls or print off student records.
