We are happy to announce that Madera County Superintendent of Schools (Madera CSOS) will be joining the Escape family! Located in the eastern San Joaquin Valley and the central Sierra Nevada mountains, Madera CSOS is home to 10 school districts, 81 schools and over 3,300 faculty and staff. Randy Ballard, Implementation Manager; and Carole Williams, Director, Customer Care had a planning meeting for the project and implementation will start soon, with a January 2020 live date. Stayed tuned here on our blog to follow their progress.

As a county, all of our school districts and the county office are extremely excited to join the Escape Family. The professionalism and knowledge of the Escape staff during the process of looking for another Financial System made it very easy to look deeper at the system. The conclusion with Escape is it would do exactly what we needed as a county. The positive comments from current users was another advantage in our ultimate decision to become part of the ESCAPE Family.
— Steve Carney, Deputy Superintendent, Business & Administrative Services
