Virtual Ed Link -- SSMS Product Automates NJ State Board of Education and Office of the Attorney General's Requirements

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED) -- Virtual Ed Link is expanding its efforts into two new areas -- Homeland Security and Law and Public Safety. These two New Jersey State Departments are responsible for the safety and well being of students across the state and as such, both organizations have a high interest in the collection of intelligence in local school districts.

The primary purpose of the VRED School Safety Management System (SSMS) product is to collaborate information from the school to the administration, staff, parents and community. Not only is this collected information valuable to the school community, it is also very important to these particular state agencies. Information and statistics regarding firearms, illegal drugs, hate crimes, gang activity, student violence and terroristic threats are all major topics of concern by state authorities.

In New Jersey, all school districts are required by the State Board of Education to adopt and implement policies and procedures consistent with the State Memorandum of Agreement approved by the Attorney General and Commissioner of Education. This memorandum is then signed by each school and municipality statewide.

"The Memorandum of Agreement between the school district and the State's Attorney General's Office includes sections on school security planning and training. We are having discussions with officials on utilizing this vehicle for implementation of the SSMS product for school districts," said John Bay, President and CEO of Virtual Ed Link. "This seems to be a very viable alternative and solution to the tight budget scenarios we are encountering with local school districts." 

The SSMS solution coordinates information manually and electronically from sources throughout the school district -- processing this information into actionable intelligence. This patterning and processing is done through proprietary algorithms designed by VRED, Viyya Technologies (VYON) and other integration partners. The resulting intelligence can then be utilized by the school administration, local authorities and state agencies to prevent security and safety breaches within the school system rather than just reacting to problem after it occurs.
