I'm working for a school as IT Sys Admin. Can i get a edu license for Lightroom? Which documents do you need for granting this license? If it's possible I will buy LR instead of Aperture. Thanks.

You may purchase only one license of any Adobe Student and Teacher Edition product within a 12 month period. Purchases of Suite editions (such as Design Premium or Master Collection) are limited to one title per platform per year. This license may be used only on your privately owned computer.
