I just picked up my daughters' report cards for the year (they did well, 
thank-you) and was approached by the school administrator about writing 
an Acess application to help track attendance for next year 
(excused/unexcused, after so many unexcused absences a letter will be 
generated, etc.).  Since I have a feel for how large this request will 
become, I googled for school administration software on the Python site 
and was pleased to get 312 "hits".  There's software out there but -- 
alas -- it's difficult to tell what is being used, what people think, 
what's being maintained, etc. any of you have experience with any of this software?  This is 
for a small (~400 students k-12), private school that is not swimming in 
taxpayer dollars and I would rather use Open Source because we will 
probably need to customize some reports, etc.  Any advice you have would 
be welcome.
