In order to upgrade StudentPlus and FinancePlus software, school district databases will be locked to any users beginning at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July 8, 2006, through 6:00 a.m. Monday, July 10th. StudentPlus is being upgraded to version 5.3 and FinancePlus is being upgraded to version 4.1. Both new versions should only be accessed through the APSCNPLUS 1.33 client. Therefore, it will be necessary for this client to be installed on the computers of all users needing access to either StudentPlus or FinancePlus after 6:00 a.m. July 10, 2006.

Potential errors could occur if users access StudentPlus or FinancePlus using the 1.33 client before the conversion to the upgraded software. Likewise, potential errors could also occur if users access StudentPlus 5.3 or FinancePlus 4.1 using an APSCNPLUS client older than version 1.33. Therefore, do not install APSCNPLUS 1.33 until after 6:00 a.m. July 10th and be sure to uninstall previous APSCNPLUS clients at the same time. APSCNPLUS 1.33 is the ONLY client that should be used after the upgrade to StudentPlus 5.3 and FinancePlus 4.1 occurs.

Instructions for downloading APSCNPLUS 1.33 and removing previous versions will be on the following site by 6:00 a.m. July 10, 2006:

A link to these instructions can also be found on the APSCN web page at: APSCN GUI Install

District users should also install the most current version of the APSCN GUI (2.9) in order to have access to the latest file transfer options. Directions for installing APSCN GUI 2.9 can also be found on the APSCN web page shown above.
