SchoolsFirst has now joined the ranks of those charging vendors for compliance, citing the high costs of keeping districts in compliance. It makes one wonder how those who claim to do it for free are able to do so (the answer is they are losing money and hoping to make it up on product sales volume of their TPA partners).
For those districts utilizing SchoolsFirst, since the service is no longer free, perhaps it is time to look at the other available TPA's.
