Everyone wants to know the weather (these images originally came from Purdue's Weather Processor, but they have transferred it to Unisys Corporation, so now they are on Unisys Weather):
The Surface Data Plot legend explains the map you see when clicking on the image.
The 500 millibar Height Contour is useful for determining how weather patterns are likely to move.
A comparison of current surface and 500 millibar plots may also be useful.

The Ann Arbor Board of Education:
Over the past few years (1999-2001, although some were talking about the problem as early as 1997), the Board has been considering what to do about overcrowding at Pioneer and Huron High (when they can agree that there *is* overcrowding or that it is a problem). So after a few years of thought on the matter (I was one of those suggesting that the redistricting in 1997-1998, discussed below, should *also* address the problems at the high schools), I wrote an essay describing a plan for an additional campus in the Ann Arbor school district. The Ann Arbor News published it as an "Other Voices" in late May or early June, 2000.
During the 1997-1998 school year, the Ann Arbor Board of Education redrew the boundaries around the elementary schools, which took effect in August, 1998. The school district administration published some official information. Others published more information obtained from and about the school district. Additionally, I have a few comments on part of the process, originally written for publication elsewhere. The Ann Arbor News published my essay on the reasons for redistricting.
One of the questions considered was how much growth in the student-aged population can and should be expected over the next five years. The United States Department of Education has published a Special Report on the Baby Boom Echo. An interesting tidbit is that the public school enrollment in Michigan is expected to decrease between 1997 and 2007, as shown on the map on Page 7 of the report, even though enrollment nationwide is projected to increase by four percent. While overall public school enrollment is dropping, though, they expect Michigan to see an increase (of less than ten percent) of secondary school enrollment, as shown on the map on Page 15. The text describes high school enrollment, and subsequent pages show the numbers for grades 9 through 12.
