[vox-announce] Linux, LUGOD and Valley Oak Charter School

Last Saturday, while LUOGD was holding a demo at the Davis Farmer's Market
for this year's Software Freedom Day, we spoke with a group of people who
are hoping to turn Valley Oak Elementary School in east Davis into a
Charter School.


Their handout at Farmer's Market mentioned they hope to become a 'tech school',
and their draft Education Program for the charter school discusses this in


We asked if they had considered Linux or other Open Source software, and they
showed great interest in it, and in our user group.  We've opened a dialog,
and Bill Storm, Valley Oak's Faculty Contact, responded quite positively:

  We need to meet.  I'm extremely interested in chatting with you about how
  your group can be a part of our efforts.  Our tech guy at Valley Oak (Devin)
  and I have had a number of conversations about the network and OS... and I'm
  pretty familiar with it, though not deeply conversant.  Please do let
  everyone know about the 9/24 meeting, and pass along our website,
  www.vocharter.org <http://www.vocharter.org/> .

If you're interested in Valley Oak Charter School, and/or how LUGOD may be
able to help them with their computer technology, please consider attending
their public information meeting, this Monday, September 24th from 7-8:30pm.
