SchoolTool Development Update

Written for SchoolTool Project by Tom Hoffman on 2016-04-01

We have good news and bad news. The good news is the the past two months we have written graphical dashboard views for enrollment, assessment and attendance that you will love, and we've finally smoothed out the process of promoting and graduating students at the end of the school year to everyone's satisfaction.

The bad news is, we have made no progress toward preparing the 3.0 release.

We're still a small company primarily dependent on one client -- Ark, who funded the work described above -- who is in turn responsible to make sure their clients are ready for their new school year. So we had to defer the (unpaid) task of preparing 3.0 yet again, to keep our clients happy, our business running and our families fed.

We are currently in the process of renegotiating our relationship with Ark for the next year. Ensuring we have a more stable and predictable schedule is a priority.

We will keep you posted.
