No I wuz talking about the school Internet not the Internet at home. Does the school get their Internet at Windstream? My best friend goes to Garrard County and he said their Internet is never down.

No idea where the school gets it. I know that Windstream is one of the very few ISP's that provide more than dialup around here, though.

Half of the computers in my room haven't worked all year. I sent in a work request back in September and nobody has even looked at them. Fixit, I feel your pain.

Yeah, and you gotta love the update that was sent out earlier in the year that broke the Internet on every computer in the district. We were trying to give PAS tears and it messed us up for about a month. Why would you not test the update before it was sent out? Who is over Technology now? Is it Karen Patterson still? Sometimes I don't think she knows straight up.

When you create positions for certain people or hire friends instead of hiring qualified people,technology falls apart. Why is Lincoln County the only district that does not have a dedicated Technology Coordinator or Director of Technology? Lincoln County combined the duties and gave the job to a principal.

Does the Central Office just not care? Is technology just not important enough to get qualified people in to fix the problems? How can they just continue to turn a blind eye to all the problems? Must be nice to have good, well paying jobs and not ever worry about getting fired even if you can't do the job.

Oh yes, this (intermittent internet outages)is why. It has nothing to do with 70% free and reduced lunch, insufficient tax base to fully fund basic school programs, teachers who havent had a raise in 5 years, classroom budgets that barely pay for paper, parents who had babies in their teens and can't read any better than 3rd grader or buy books to help them become better readers, or even pay for the gas to get them to library.

Fix the internet and it will all be well.

To me, it just shows lack of leadership across the district and that the hiring practices of this district need to change. Seems like the Central Office is too big and takes too much of the financial resources. When positions are cut, it is never at the Central Office.

Is Bobby qualified to fix them, or just a fix it man?

What makes him an idiot? Do they get fixed and just not stay that way or do they never get fixed?
