I guess I'm pretty lucky to be where I am. I'm with a large school board (152,000 students, aprox. 10,000 full-time teachers) and consequently, we have a pretty good set-up within our own system.
We have our own intra-net for our board and we can access anything ('ceptin porn and things like that!) from our system. We have our own email and addresses with our board and everything 'school' within our board can be accessed. I can even access my personal email from the board. They have a firewall in place and the security checks in place that block us or the students from places we shouldn't be.
We can use Microsoft Office/Open Office documents as both software programs are available for use. Anything, as much as we want, can be stored in our own private drive on the computer and, if we want to make those documents available to others in our own school or to anyone else in our board, we can do that too.
Of course, we have a huge 'tech' department that supports the whole thing. Gargantuan. I'm more and more amazed by what I find on the site. How did people manage before the internet/intranet? (I'm a dinosaur myself so I do remember the old way.... how did we do it?)
