Didn't we start a users group last year? I attended a few of the
meetings, is this the same group or a new one? Anyway one of these days we
will be going to the new SMS program ( I need to confince the districts to
spend the money to do so).
We are currently on Win School and are less than satisfied with the program.
I would like to be in the users group so I can see if it is worth updating
or going with a diffrent vendor.
Let me know if you will be meeting again.
