Meet me in St. Louis, Louie

... meet me at the fair. Ah, Judy Garland sang about the St. Louis World Fair in the movie Meet Me in St. Louis. Dawn and I were in St. Louis this week, but sadly, Ms. Garland was not. Actually, Dawn is there all the time, because SHE lives there. But I digress... Ritenour School District in metropolitan St. Louis became the first school district to convert to the all new BoardDocs.

Michelle Clover is the document publisher at Ritenour; she's been using BoardDocs for about 2 1/2 years now. Dr. Cheryl Compton, the Superintendent at Ritenour, was willing to let Ritenour go ahead and move to the new system, and for that, we are very thankful.

You see, we needed a district that fit a certain profile to be the first convertee (is that a word?). We needed the district to be using most of the features of BoardDocs including online submission of agenda items. It was also important that there not be too many years of data in their database for ease of converting their information to the new format.

They fit all of the criteria. Imagine that!

Training went well, and Michelle was very excited about all of the new functionality. Heck, with the easy new features like drag and drop and auto-renumbering, what's not to like?

Now, when you travel a lot, it really is all about the food. I am happy to report that I expanded my culinary horizons this trip by having world famous St. Louis toasted Ravioli, meaning: fried ravioli. It was delish, but really, you could fry cardboard and serve it with some sauce and it would taste pretty good.

Their data has been converted now, and they are on their way. 1 down!
