The Charlottesville School Board has OKd two new technology positions, WINA reports, which is the kind of thing that gets me excited. They want one person to maintain CHS and BMS student records and another — this is the cool one — to run the city schools’ website. So, local geeks looking for work, consider applying for this gig.
Picture this: city school blogs. Get the new superintendent, a couple of principals, and a handful of teachers blogging. Aggregate all of those and put them on the front page of the city schools’ website, and I’ll include them in the Charlottesville blog aggregator, of course. Whoever the new supe turns out to be, a blog is going to make them seem a whole lot more accessible to the people of C’ville. That’s something Scottie Griffin would have benefitted from.
