Academy conversion worries [Solved]
Like many schools, our school has jumped on the Academy band wagon, and hope to have converted by January 2011. We already have arrangements for replacement for FMS which is "Academy friendly", however what I am worried about now is our SIMS database..
I have read that Academy's "must" have a new SIMS instance and cannot transfer data from the school to the academy DB. Under normal circumstances, this would be fine - set up a new SIMS db, get hired help in to manually enter stuff that couldnt be carried over. Fair enough - but what about those who use things like SIMS Learning Gateway? (And therefore Active Directory Provisioning?) I presume we will need to re-provision all 3000 accounts (including staff + students!)
