    How are you feeding the screens? Would it be possible to grab RSS feeds from appropriate news sites and do a headlines screen?

    Any particular theme?

    I use a homebrewed little framebased page with a java refresh function (nasty I know but I'm not a web-dev). Just allow a few teachers access to a shared folder on the host PC and they can update the photos it displays. Any content I tend to do as am still working on a way to avoid teachers editing code.

    Maybe some stuff from schooltube?

    Depends the time you have and the resources, I just created a powerpoint for my former primary school, that was more than enough for what they wanted to display - dates - news - some photos etc.

    We use sadeo boxes to display content in this secondary school. All streamed from a server to the individual screens around the school.

    Maybe you could use some of the content from archive.org - Internet Archive: Moving Image Archive

    This stuff is mainly Creative Commons licensed, so very usable.
