When a school district is so small that it only has 350 students, it takes a resourceful superintendent to get things done. With so few students, per-pupil funding isn't much, and the operating budget is small.
Despite limited capital, the superintendent of a small rural school district in Texas put a high-speed internet drop in every classroom and made its administrative processes paperless. His trick? He did it himself.
"I don't mind getting my hands dirty; I know most superintendents don't have time to pull cable," said Randy Moczygemba, superintendent of the Medina Independent School District.
