The district boundaries encompass much of the City of Tucson, the city of South Tucson, and segments of Catalina Foothills and Tanque Verde.

    Independence Public School District is a school district headquartered in Independence, Missouri, United States. The district serves most of Independence and Sugar Creek. As of 2008 the Superintendent of Schools in the Independence Public School District is Dr. Jim Hinson. Comprehensive Alternative In November 2007, the voters of Independence, Missouri and Kansas City, Missouri, voted for seven schools, consisting of one high school, one middle school, and five elementary schools, to be taken over by the Independence School District. This is perceived as another major setback for the Kansas City, Missouri School District and a huge undertaking with a great boon for Western Independence. Jim Hinson, the superintendent of the Independence district, believed that the KCMO district fought the annexation was because it was a "pride issue" and because the KCMO district feared that other parts of the district could secede. The transfer did not include the C. R. Anderson School, which was originally called the Pitcher School. KCMSD annexed the school in 1957. The school became an alternative school for troubled students in the 1980s. The school closed in 2000. Transfer to Independence

    The Spackenkill Union Free School District, also known as Spackenkill School District, is a New York school district in the town of Poughkeepsie, New York. The Spackenkill Union Free School District was chartered by the New York State Legislature in 1865 and is one of about 130 remaining union free school districts within the state. The uniqueness of remaining independent without centralization with other districts has helped Spackenkill remain a small and close-knit school district. The name Spackenkill stems from Spack's Creek. Spackenkill is a Dutch interpretation of the Native American phrase "speaking waters", which was given to a noisy stream running through Spackenkill Road, located just across the street from the present Croft Corners Fire Company. The district's first school building was on the site of the present firehouse and was built in 1866 or 1867. It was a traditional one-room schoolhouse built of bricks brought from Holland as ballast in sailing vessels. Beginning in 1912, older pupils were sent outside the district to continue their education. By 1920 the one-room schoolhouse was overcrowded with an enrollment of 55 pupils, and plans were made for a new building.

Although the district was formally established in 1906, the first known school building in the area was built in 1851. It was a small, single-room adobe structure, crudely constructed, and heated with a one small stove. Between 1874 and 1900, three brick schools were built and rebuilt to keep up with the growing population. In 1905, Murray City annexed an area of land that increased the population to 5000. As a result, the city decided it was necessary to have its own school district, which enrolled nearly 1000 pupils in the first year. There was a staff of twenty teachers, and two music and art specialists. A beginning teacher made $45 a month. The three school buildings in the newly established district were renamed through a student competition in 1906. The names selected were Arlington School (formerly District #25 and Central School), Liberty School (formerly District #24 and Winchester School), and Pioneer School, located near 300 West and 5300 South.

The regional schools (originally Apponequet, subsequently Apponequet and the then-Austin Middle School) were likewise controlled by the both towns under the District. Under this system, an elementary school teacher is employed by either Freetown or Lakeville, but a middle or high school teacher is employed by the District.

As a public system, the CBE is required to accept any students who meet age and residency requirements, regardless of religion. In terms of student population and school count, the CBE is over twice the size of the other major school district board in Calgary, the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD), which teaches mainly, but not exclusively, Catholic students. The other two districts based in the city, both Francophone, are a fraction of the size of the CBE with only a handful of schools each. In land area, the CBE is the smallest of the four Calgary districts, as its territory is limited to municipal limits of Calgary (although its area is only slightly smaller than that of the CCSD). As the city limits have expanded, the CBE boundary has remained in sync. All CBE land overlaps the other three districts. The CBE operates 219 schools in grades K-12. Non-adult student enrollment was 96,860 as of September 2009. The operating budget was $790 million for the 2005/2006 fiscal year. A group of seven elected trustees govern the CBE.

    Chicago Public Schools

    • Schools: William Howard Taft High School
    Chicago Public Schools, commonly abbreviated as CPS by local residents and politicians and officially classified as City of Chicago School District #299 for funding and districting reasons, is a large school district that manages over 600 public elementary and high schools in Chicago, Illinois. Chicago Public Schools is currently the third largest school district in the United States, with more than 400,000 students enrolled in the school district. Unlike most school systems, CPS is headed by a chief executive officer rather than a superintendent. The position was redefined after Mayor Richard M. Daley convinced the Illinois General Assembly to place CPS under the mayor's control. Illinois school districts are generally governed by locally-elected school boards, where each district board hires a superintendent, who in turn hires administrators such as principals, who then must be approved by the school board. In contrast, the CPS board is appointed by the mayor, essentially making the entire system completely accountable to the mayor. CPS is headquartered in the 125 South Clark Street building in the Chicago Loop. Barbara Byrd-Bennett is the current CEO of Chicago Public Schools
