Why do you have to have the premium version of SBS, if you have no
requirement for SQL or ISA server then Standard is good enough.  Buy a cheap
firewall to handle the imcoming.

what is driving the change to the server's status and configuration?  is it 
performance only?  if you outlined the key services this machine is 
providing the school, to what degree is it not meeting production 
expectations specifically?  if you did nothing, where are they at?

having a clear understanding and itemization of what it should be doing and 
degree to which it is not currently meeting expectations will help drive 
success with any change.
