MSJ uses Edline and I think it is OK, I really don't like the fact that there web version is a PC only program. Parents and students do like the parent portal where their grades can be checked on.
Our website is Wordpress but I am a very big Drupal fan and have used it to create several educational sites (including http://www.vita-learn.org/
, or http://www.askbj.net/
). I think it would make a good front end for a school website.
For teacher webpages where they post assignments and such I prefer to give them a choice between Google Sites, Edline, moodle, or other if they request. With so many tools out there I think each teacher should have a choice as to what is the best method for themselves.

A few web site questions.....
Wondering if any other Vermont schools are using Edline as a website for teacher pages, delivering course content and for reporting grades and progress?
This is our 4th or 5th year and we went with Edline primarily because it was relatively inexpensive and integrated well with our SIS and grading application.
If so, are you also maintaining another primary school website?
Question #2 - Any schools using Drupal for their school website? I'm considering a renovation this spring/summer and have been experimenting with Drupal. Would love a little more feedback before I committ.
