VELI Thrills Upstate New York School Community! Implementation of Safety and Security System Is Ready

BOCES CoSer State Funding Helps Administrators Secure VELI Solution

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - February 26, 2008) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (VELI) (PINKSHEETS: VRED), the developer and marketer of the leading edge School Safety Management System (SSMS), announced its activation in the elementary school of the South Colonie Central School District.

The initial activation will take place at the Roessleville Elementary School in Saratoga Springs, New York, one of three schools in the district. Activation in the Middle School and the High School will be completed in March.

Superintendent Michael Marcelle stated: "The administrators and the parents in this school district have been searching for a security solution that will give us confidence that our school children and all associated with the school district will be prepared and protected. The VELI SSMS solution meets that objective perfectly!"

The first activation will occur over the next two weeks in the district elementary school, followed by the district middle school and high school before the end of March. Altogether, the school district indicates that their community of nearly 5,000 students, parents, teachers, and administrators will be active registered users of SSMS by April 1, 2008.

VELI receives a licensing and customization fee as well as $4.95 annual fee per registered user. The South Colonie School district indicates that a portion of these fees will be satisfied through the newly announced VELI entry into the New York State BOCES CoSer funding program. The CoSer program is geared to the needs of the individual schools and districts in New York that install the safety and security program.

CEO John Bay stated: "This VELI installation represents the first one paid for in part by government funding. I'm happy to see that state and federal funding programs are beginning to step up to the plate and help school campuses secure our VELI system. South Colonie represents the first in a long line of schools now in the process of securing and implementing the VELI safety solution through the assistance of state and federal funding programs."
