I may start a war here, but I'm going to recommend Lotus Notes / Domino 
as the collaborative software for you. I've had quite a bit of 
experience with it in a large multi-national company. It can definitely 
handle all that you may want to throw at it. It does have some draw 
backs - what doesn't? IBM / Lotus can give your people a great deal of 
support while they get their legs underneath them. I'm not going to 
swear to it, but I think they can extend some pretty good terms to 
public schools. There are all kinds of specialized add-ons as well. 
Development tools are pretty robust as well.
