|Oracle Corporation has been providing solutions to K-12 Schools for a number of years. Our strategy focuses on all functional areas of school operations and instruction and we are striving to provide comprehensive solutions that address each of these areas.
|Today, Oracle offers the fastest growing portfolio of administrative applications, in the industry, to school districts. These include financial management, human resource and payroll solutions. Each of these solutions takes full advantage of Oracle’s industry leading database, tools, and information management products. Oracle has also developed a philanthropic program to support K-12, which includes Oracle Promise (a program to install network computers in needy schools), Oracle Internet Academy ( a program to train high school juniors and seniors on Internet programming technologies), and think.com, a collaborative learning environment for K-12.
|In addition, we have built a very robust portfolio of business partners whose applications take advantage of the Oracle platform. These business partners provide important applications that assure that we can provide K-12 Schools with the important solutions that they need. These applications include areas such as student information systems, transportation and food services. We will talk more about these business partners shortly.
