We at Woodstock also are use Rediker software administrators Plus - and
just started using a  module for school counselors.  We use Gradequick
for grades and period by period attendance.  I'd love to learn more

This is our second using Edline as an online course management system
for teachers.  It works seamlessly with both of the above programs.
