SAGE ANALYTICS ADDS EDUCATIONAL CONTRACTS IN ILLINOIS AND VIRGINIA

SAGE ANALYTICS ADDS EDUCATIONAL CONTRACTS IN ILLINOIS AND VIRGINIA
 PROVO, Utah, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Sage Analytics announced today additional educational contracts in the Chicago and Virginia School Systems for $167,000. More than 38 schools in the Chicago School System have subscribed to the Sage Analysis during the course of the last two years. The Sage Analysis is a diagnostic tool used by the school systems to identify and remediate problems that degrade the quality of the educational experience. The tools have attacked the root causes of attendance, discipline and performance problems. The current contract for $105,000 in Chicago will allow four schools to pursue the remediation and intervention phase of the analysis.
 Sage Analytics also announced a $62,500 contract for the Prince William County, Virginia School System to evaluate the learning environment as well as provide training to principals in decentralized management techniques. Dr. Joe Petterle, director of Sage Education, said that "The decentralization and organizational management of school systems have changed dramatically in the past few years. The Sage Analysis provides managers both a framework and tools for making site-based management work to bring about improved pedagogical techniques."
 Sage Analytics has conducted studies in more than 179 schools across the country. Dramatic improvements in scholastic scores, improved instruction, increased course offerings, reduction in disciplinary problems and increased attendance have all been recorded. Jon Stephens, chief executive officer of Sage Analytics noted that "With the election of Bill Clinton we anticipate a renewed emphasis on educational priorities. The Economist recently commented that high levels of U.S. productivity have been directly correlated with the quality of education. To compete in the global economy in the '90s, improved education is the key building block."

(NASDAQ: SAII), founded in 1979, develops and distributes the Sage Analysis decision-support software technology and related products, primarily to the environmental remediation, economic development and educational markets.
