"I want a list of all unplanned outages for the next six months!!!" -PHB

Can you give me an example?  I'm not in the Public Ed field, but have
been involved on the side for years, but when you say proactive, I'm not
sure that we are on the same page.

For example, my solution to proactively deal with Virus Outbreaks is
three levels of Anti-virus software, updated hourly, plus an SUS server
(WUS is sooo cool, but beta+production=headaches) and a scripted MBSA
scan weekly.

It takes me about 5 minutes a day to check on the virus updates, about
15 minutes a month to review SUS updates, and about an hour per Monday
to review the MBSA logs.  Comes down to a grand total of 6 hours a
month...

Is that the kind of "plan" he is talking about?

Does anyone here (besides me) work in an educational/K-12 setting?
Namely, public education...

My boss just sent an agenda out for a meeting, and the biggest part of
it is determining how to be proactive about a lot of things around the
district... while that's not a bad idea, I'm wondering how he's planning
on pulling that off, when every knowledgeable person in my department
has enough of a workload for three people. Going beyond that, I've
worked with most of the other school districts in our area, and none of
them appear to be proactive at all... and employees that I've spoken to
in other districts agree.

<sigh> I know I probably shouldn't even send this message out, but what
the hell... I haven't got anything to lose at this point.

Thoughts?

Andrew
