Upgrade Access Control To Genetec

Looking for a little guidance on upgrading our access control system. For reference, we are a K-8 school district with 10 schools, a district administration building, and a warehouse. Our VMS is Genetec and we are committed to that. We would like to upgrade our access control system from Keri System (NXT) to Genetec. Each location is currently equipped with 4 readers (limited due to cost of controllers). What is the best route to take? We are using older HID proximity readers that operate on Wiegand. Is this going to be an entire rip of the system? What about badging, is that a separate program or is it accomplished in Synergis? What about installing and integrating wireless locks for classrooms?
