PCS Edventures! Announces School Management Software

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2006 -- PCS Edventures! (OTC BB: PCSV) today announced that it has introduced a new school information management tool called STEPS™ for the $1.0B annual US market.

STEPS™ (School Tracking Education Performance System) is a comprehensive school information management software and centralized data-warehousing system designed to meet criteria for NCLB and the needs of teachers, administrators, parents, and students. Its four components allow for absent students to locate homework assignments, parents to access their children's progress, teachers to simply and quickly enter student data from their desk, and administrators to quickly locate data on students as a group, a class or an individual. Those components are Master Scheduler, Office, Classroom, and In-Touch. Master Scheduler has a 90% placement rate and In-Touch allows teachers to do some of their work from home, by remotely accessing the system at school. Teachers were an integral part of the design and function of this system and as such, it is the most robust and user friendly of all the systems available today.

STEPS™ manages an education-enterprise through tight Internet-technology integration, unique technology leveraged product support, and advanced cross-platform technologies that ensure usability, security, and reliability on Microsoft® Windows®, Apple® Mac-OS®, and many various Unix® operating systems. This cross platform flexibility and proven architecture provide a vehicle for PCS to cross-market into the school administration software marketplace.
