    Re: General advice for the new guy

    Geography has cursed me into being a Brewer’s fan. In fact, I probably spend far too much of my time at Brewerfan.net.

    I’m at a private school, but it works mostly the same way in public schools in our state. Education in the US is left to the individual 50 states with some federal government intervention by withholding funds if you don’t play by their rules at the time.

    In Wisconsin (and I believe most states) we have school districts that are their own political entity somewhat separate from other areas of politics. They have their own governing boards and geographic area. They are beholden to state standards, but still have a high degree of autonomy. The districts have total control over how they wish to implement IT.

    Re: General advice for the new guy

    So, is that a district for each educational establishment (bloody hell, i don't usually do big words), or groups of the above (can't be bothered to write it again)?

    I am aware that writing "(can't be bothered to write it again)" is actually more typing than "educational establishment" but it's nearly 11pm, i've had some sort of virus type of illness for 3 days and I'm tired, so it's pretty fair that I can afford a bit of inane ramblings at the moment.

    Re: General advice for the new guy

    There are some exceptions, but a district normally is comprised of public elementary, middle and high schools in a given area. The district that my son attends is populated by students from several smaller communities and has a high school (grades 9-12), a middle school (7 & 8), and I think six elementary schools (k4-6). The largest district in the state is the Milwaukee Public School District which has 223 schools, 6,100 teachers, and 95,600 students.

    The private school I work at is virtually autonomous, but is technically part of area Catholic Archdioceses.

    Re: General advice for the new guy

    Might be a stupid question, but is it all in a geographically close/compact area then?

    Re: General advice for the new guy

    I suppose we are way off topic for the forum guidelines, but here is a map showing all the districts in Wisconsin.

    The 12 CESA districts are not really important. It was the only map I could find with districts for the entire state. If you click on the word CESA, it will link you to maps of each school district and should give you an idea about the varying size.

    Re: General advice for the new guy

    i seriously wonder what would happen if we rubbed clothes (collars etc) with potatoes, ignore the smell of course.

    Would it have the same effect?

    discuss!

    Re: General advice for the new guy

    Ignoring all the ironing talk (all talk and no action, like most men, I suspect!!)..
    Welcome, Blind.

    I think we should arrange a conference over there as soon as possible.
    I'd much rather go there than up to the frozen North where current conferences seem to be!
    AND before you all leap to your feet and yell at me, remember that I am on the South Coast so anything more than 50 miles up from me is 'The North!'
    How many females are in this sort of job in your neck of the woods?

    You NEED to look at a map; have you ANY idea how cold north-central states get in the winter? Think lots of monkeys looking for welders... Think snow over your head... Think snowballs cold enough to survive for a surprisingly long time in hell!
