One of our clients uses Powerschool in a K12LTSP environment with no problems. It's entirely web based with a sprinkling of java applets here and there. The only 'gotcha' we had was that the applets use some specific TCP ports for communication that were blocked by the firewall. Once allowed, it works perfectly.
