If I understand it correctly, the setup at your school requires to join 
the three Windows servers to a Samba4 domain. This is possible with 
Debian Edu as well, if Administrator rights are available on the Windows 

Debian Edu doesn't provide an Internet content filter out of the box, it 
would need some knowledge to set up such a service. It is possible, 
though, to block Internet access for groups.

So while it should be possible to replace the existing Karoshi server in
theory, it would need some work.

Hope it helps,
