LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 9, 2019. FACTS and Mid-South Independent School Business Officers (MISBO) are pleased to announce that they recently extended their partnership agreement. The partnership, which has existed since 2013, previously offered special pricing for MISBO members purchasing FACTS Tuition Management, but is now expanding to offer special pricing for new schools purchasing FACTS Student Information System (SIS) as well.

We are grateful for their partnership and look forward to working together for many years to come.”
