Technical blog issues (aka "Where'd it go?")


Hi all. So you may have noticed that the School Zone blog looks different now (hopefully, better). That's because we've moved to a new hosting platform that should make our blogs more versatile and easier to view from multiple devices. The problem is that in switching blog software, not all of our old content transferred over.

Embedded documents, old live blogs from school board meetings, videos and some databases now no longer show up properly in the new blog format. We are in the process of restoring some of these items, particularly more recent ones, but not all content will be available for easy viewing. Sorry about this. Going forward, this should no longer be a problem. Thanks for understanding.

    BN needs to proofread and fact check these blog posts. 'One-five' should be 'one-fifth'. Also, Kimmel first ran at 12:05am, then midnight before moving to 11:35pm. It never ran at 12:35am.
