    Just curious - our district is adopting it, and of course, the transition is proving to be a bit... hinky at best. Class rosters are wrong, teachers can't log in, nobody's been trained, lol.

    I don't know about that program but we are having similar issues. Our district adopted a program the big wigs said was wonderful - small towns are using it! Guess what - our district is bigger than those small towns - it is losing data, purchase orders, not issuing checks, freezing up, is harder to use than the old one, etc. etc. It is a nightmare and our school year hasn't started yet! We are so late paying bills that the vendors have shut us down and supplies to start the school year are delayed. We have a new attendance system too - totally paperless - can't wait to see the results of that!?!?!

    We use JPAMS. It is taking a few days to work out all of the issues.

    We use JPAMS. At my old school we entered attendance and grades, at my present school we just enter grades. Sometimes there are a few glitches at the start of the year, but it's very easy to use and has some interesting report options with it.
