Hi All,

I thought that Pearsons had purchased Chauncery, SASI and Powerschool? Are 
they going to continue to support all of these? I heard they were not and 
were going to and change everyone over to Powerschool. Is this not the case? 
  Here at WNESU we are looking into changing from Win School to something 
more updated. So far whats out there is way to expensive for what they 
provide in features and service. I was leaning towards a n open source 
solution, and would like any feedback from anyone who has tried it.

This discussion has been great and timely.
