> 1. Student information system (Online viewing of students activities both
> academic and extra-curricular,attendance,Marks grade etc).

Opensis (*http://opensis*.com/) : It is a very interesting tool to start
with . It stared with postgresql as backend database but soon migrated to
Mysql with the aim to be intergrated with Moodle (http://*moodle*.org/ ).So,
its really cool to deploy both opensis and moodle and wait for the opensis
integration with moodle so that they both can have a SSO.

Also not to forget they have a SMS module (not included in the community
version) that can be used to inform the parents about their wards
performance, attendance and other things

2. Library management module.

Koha (http://www.*koha*.org/)
NewgenLib (

Koha no doubt is the best available solution but govt. committees have more
confiidence in Newgenlib (because of unknown reasons :P ) so better go for
Newgenlib if you have to take permission from one of these yes of library
committees.Also I am a bit doubtfull about the acquisition module of the
koha , someone told me that this module is a bit cumbersome as far as Indian
financial auditing policies are concerned

Also another important things to note here is that whether the staff and
student of that school will take it or not as login to all these services
are separate and it will be really painful for them to login into these
services separately.

You can also have a look at how HP govt. is going to implement this in all
its government school's in the coming time as deepak has told me long ago
that HP govt. is in process to have a Prop. solution for the same.
