Here is a letter I sent to various Unit 4 Administrators and a Board Member:
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,
The video is a huge hit! It is such a huge improvement over the previous forms of communicating information. It is exciting to see Unit 4 and the FIC moving in this direction.
While several of us were talking after the presentation, several things came up – specifically about getting information online and maybe even making a couple posters:
- put edulog online
- Show people a map with the school district boundaries and the location of each school. Maybe a 4′ x 3′ posterboard and people can insert pushpins (I have done this elsewhere with great success).
Jamar, Orlando and Judy asked for the URLs for my projects. Feel free to share these with others if you wish (for instance, I cannot locate Michelle Brown’s email address).
Google map + calculator for distance from your address to EVERY elementary school:
Lastly, I have an online database of the Kindergarten lottery data from 2009 – 2011. Some of it is really technical, but here are two fancy charts derived from the data:
2010 : http://lottery.cb-pta.com/test/visualize.php?year=2010
2011 : http://lottery.cb-pta.com/test/visualize.php?year=2011
I would be more than happy to entertain any more questions or comments. In fact, I humbly ask for your thoughts and honest feedback.
Have a most wonderful Friday!
