student information, identify health trends and compile information for
district and state reports. The form letter feature generates

compliance to meet your specific state requirements. These are just few

client/server systems this backup is sent to the server for tape backup
at night and in standalone systems it is sent to the computer's hard
drive. Second, since data files can be damaged by computer viruses and

files. To ensure this data is kept safe, we recommend that you back up
