    We have Organisational Units for departments [English, Maths, Science, Learning Support etc] We also have Organisational Units for staff who do not fit into these divisions ]Temporary Staff, GTP, Administration, ...]

    This helps when allocating printers. Many staff have expressed a preference to print to a particular printer no matter which machine they logon to. While others like to print to the closest printer [usually the printer in the where they are logged in] I also have some sub OUs that have policies that modify the policy inherited from the OU above: One example is where a member of staff 'must' be able to see the C:\ drive [as it is hidden from most staff]

    HTH.

    Staff domain (legacy setup, it's just a child-domain of the student/main domain)
    Teaching staff
    -Each faculty
    Admin staff
    -Office staff
    -Senior staff (SLT etc)

    SLT have separate admin accounts (only available on their own laptops using Log On To) and teaching accounts for classroom work. Everyone under the Admin staff OU is a Power User, Teachers are just Users. Seems to work pretty well.

    Pupils - Locked down tight. Shared documents drive is set to read only [but can't be seen].
    Non-teaching - locked down, to a degree. No studentwork drive, IIRC. Has Staff drive.
    Teaching - same restrictions as non-teaching. Access to Student work. Has staff drive.
    System admin - unrestricted [I have about 9 network drives and 3 virtual CD drives.]


    Everyone gets the same filtering and only Sysadmin can install things.
