You tried to change process' group while starting paster as user with uid=1000 (which usually doesn't have rights to to that). Remove "--user=schooltool --group=schooltool" from your command or start it as root.

You tried to start schooltool as a user. Need sudo:

sudo /etc/init.d/schooltool-2009 start

But of course such "crashes" are annoying. Still the same now.
