Demand for School Safety Solutions Reaches an All-Time High

Schools Seeking Pell Grants and Perkins Loans Need VELI Safety Solution to Comply

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - February 21, 2008) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED), the developer and marketer of the School Safety Management System (SSMS), announced that new Federal legislation is mandating schools and colleges to implement a comprehensive security platform in order for the school to remain eligible for Federal funds and grants.

The Laws S1642 and HR 4137 now require campus compliance for Safety and Crisis Management under strict guidelines. The campus must have a Crisis Management Plan if it is to seek Title IV Funds such as Pell Grants or Perkins Loans. Campuses that do not comply with these new laws face losing Title IV funding and could face other penalties or sanctions.

The VELI SSMS platform, already being implemented at campuses around the country, provides and exceeds all of the requirements currently being mandated in this legislation.

CEO John Bay stated: "This government legislation confirms that our approach is right for the need and right for the time. VELI is setting the standard for security platforms in education. The company continues to review its revenue projections for upward adjustment in light of this new development and the resultant surge in demand that we have already begun to feel."

Virtual Ed Link has made its mantra a "culture of preparedness" that establishes the planning, training, and teaching necessary to help save lives in times of crisis. The demand for VELI's life saving product will continue to grow as campus administrators recognize the VELI System as the standard for school safety.
