Well, I cant answer that as this is what was "suggested" to me by the 
school. However, in my conversation with them I took it as, each school 
would host any apps they are using.

I was just literally thrown into this so its all new to me.

But from the responses I have seen and what I know about the school 
setup already - I dont think a thin client setup is something I want to 
tackle, nor do I think overall its implementable here.

Just a few of the responses about CPU and ram considerations - Im not 
sure the district has all that much going for it.

But I believe I have enough to warrant moving this topic off the plate 
and moving towards a straight forward Ubuntu install on all machines.

Thanks all for the information.
