Hi Christine,

We (Burlington Schools) just converted from Blackboard to School Messenger.
We went live Nov 1, so its still kinda new. I think there were some bumps
in the road related to translation, but it was mostly with some of our more
unique languages and I think they got it figured out. School Messenger can
also be embedded in PowerSchool. And they turned out to be less expensive
than Blackboard.
