I am coming to this thread from an independent school perspective - we know that all our parents, guardians etc have internet access. The release of info online has been widely supported by parents etc. It's save a shedload of effort on reports and so on; we've presented policies online to fit in with compliance while not making them open to the public. As yet we are both sending out paper copies and e-copies, although we are now meeting some market resistance where parents are refusing paper copies on environmental grounds. My forecast is that it'll be electronic only in 12 or at most 24 months. Where we have families abroad or on the move, online is better by far. Now we don't use SIMS and our system is pretty cost-efficient (SchoolBase) for online services - not sure how the finances work out for SIMS. But of you can avoid the cost of paper, copying/printing, envelopes and postage that's a huge saving (and the time and temper saved in not stuffing zillions of envelopes must be worth a lot too).

And don't forget the most important people - the pupils themselves.....................!
