Time Moves On

Sorry about the scarcity of posts– we had a slower week with the HS students at Alternatives, and I used the time for a lot of meetings with vendors and to catch up on paperwork. Then we had a four-day October break weeekend, so I took the family to Portsmouth and Gosport for three days and two nights (I’ll make a separate post about this trip).

At the moment, I’m working on several threads. Researching student information systems (PCR Educator, Veracross, Senior Systems, Blackbaud, and custom FileMaker), interviewing IT consultants, preposing redesigns of three computer pods in the HS, a co-location plan, the MS laptop program, the school’s web presence, academic content management systems, and working out the budget for next year. Lot’s o fun. Maybe I should try to work on more projects simultaneously?

I will admit that the student information system research is bearing interesting results. At first, I thought only the newer, smaller vendors had moved to serious web connections and interactivity with other databases, but it appears that this challenge may be being picked up by some of the larger vendors as well. It would be nice if we could have more flexibility with the system, without having to start with an underdeveloped system.

Meanwhile, back to the email and meeting appointments. More later.
