Hi Michelle and all:

We have a person that is a master at this stuff and she has been challenged
by Seesaw a little.  Very simple system but does not seem to allow alot of
flexibility. Seesaw has to create your schools, tedious a bit and then we
ended up manually moving students from our existing schools to a new
virtual academy we created.  Not great.  We are also waiting on them to get
a couple of major issues resolved.  Maybe you or Amy can help on this
one....

We have opted this year to not include PreK.  But when PreK teachers create
a "free" account, they are tied onto our licensed account and then when we
"remove" them from that, they lose anything they created in their free
account.  Argh.  Frustrating on many levels.  Have you dealt with this?

Peter

P. S.  Michelle ... I need very much to talk to you about Powerschool
stuff.  Can we connect this or next week?
