Virtual Ed Link Showcases System at the NYSCOSS Fall Leadership Summit in Rochester, New York

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED) -- Dr. Alan McCartney, COO of Virtual Ed Link, announced today that the Virtual Ed Link management team showcased the VRED Safety and Security Management System (SMSS) at the New York State Council of School Superintendent's (NYSCOSS) Fall Leadership Summit at the Rochester Riverside Convention center in Rochester, New York, held on October 4 - 5.

More than 735 superintendents, deputy superintendents, key education leaders, noted educators and others attended The Council's Fall Leadership Summit as Dr. Alan McCartney shared the VRED system advantages for safety and security management in schools in table top discussions. His session entitled, "The 411 on School Safety and Security Management," covered the advantages of implementing an integrated enterprise-wide emergency response strategy. Points that were discussed included: the Building Blocks of Safety; Integrated vs. Separate Solution; In-House vs. Hosted Architecture; Management Features; Active vs. Passive Response; Common weaknesses in emergency preparedness and the importance of e-Learning in preparedness.

Superintendents attending the sessions were impressed with the flexibility and scope of the Safety and Security Management System. When they found out that we also can deliver an open source Learning Management System (LMS) that takes advantage of the hundreds of training videos and simulations, including our own such as Swine Flu Awareness and Internet Security for Parents, they realized that we were not "just" an alert and notification company -- they realized that we had a comprehensive safety and security portfolio to offer them.

The Company is following up on numerous inquiries in the recent weeks regarding the confusion of restricted shares issued last year as a dividend. The company believes there has been an inadvertent short created as a result which potentially represents a significant back office error of one or more DTC clearing firms. Since the dividend shares are restricted and cannot legally be traded, clearing firms and brokerage houses that are trading ineligible shares will be subject to covering those short traded shares by purchasing them in the market.
