Our Company

Educational Vision And Networking Services, Inc. (EVANS) specializes in educational improvement projects and computer assisted management practices.  Founded in January, 1999, we offer a variety of products and services designed to assist clients in better managing the operation of their organizations.

EVANS, Inc. began by creating the original SIP2K:  School Improvement Plan 2000 software program.  The program was designed to assist schools and school districts in developing effective school improvement plans with a strong emphasis on eliminating much of the unnecessary duplication of effort when schools need to develop multiple action plans.  The program provided structure to the planning process while allowing flexibility in the content of the plan.

SIP2K2:  School Improvement Plan 2002 followed with many more components than its predecessor SIP2K.  The newest version, SIP2K10:  School Improvement Plan 2010 provides the client with more flexibility in the types of data maintained in the program and added the ability to export data to Excel to generate graphs.

During 2002, customized relational databases were added to the list of EVANS, Inc. products.  Databases have been created for such programs as:  RECASST, GEAR UP, Dropout Prevention, and Health Careers Access Program.

EVANS, Inc. also provides a number of services, such as:  AS400 query design; custom database development and management; desktop computer applications; on-line surveys; program evaluation; school improvement planning; and, web design.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide products and services designed to assist clients in utilizing technology and effective planning in order to make their programs operate more efficiently.

 

Our Goals

  • To create products, such as custom databases, which will assist clients in managing organizational data more efficiently.

  • To provide services to clients who do not have the time or expertise to provide the services themselves.
