The Web sites for Virtual Pre-K (http://www.virtualpre-k.org/) and Virtual Kindergarten (http://www.virtualk.org/) were originally built in 2001 and 2004 as part of an early childhood learning initiative at the Chicago Public Schools. These Web sites work in conjunction with a CD-ROM application and video lessons that are available for parents, teachers, and caregivers for use in the home, classroom and childcare centers.
The Adams 12 Five Star School district is located in Thornton, CO - just outside of Denver.

The site is integrated into our Active Directory, allowing staff to log in and update their respective sections of the site.

One of the important goals for this site was to represent each of the different language programs in the theme. This was accomplished by having rotating photos on the front page and in the right column on sub-pages. All images are tagged (using taxonomy) with the related program. Each page in the site may be affiliated with a program, limiting the side photos to photos tagged with the same program. For example, if an event is tagged as a ‘spanish’ event, only photos tagged as ‘spanish’ will appear along the side of the event.
As first part of an ongoing process to redesign the web presence for the MIT media Lab, studio:module developed a microsite to attract prospective students and researchers to the Lab. The site includes video, rich media and an in-depth overview to the researchers and personalities at the Lab.
I have an assistantship at grad school, and for the work I’ve been creating an educational site in Drupal for my professor. He teaches 3D modeling and animation, and also wanted a personal site.
We used the Andreas01 theme (I had to make some adjustments).
We extensively utilize Organic Groups to separate classes out, along with OG Vocab - so that each OG can classify its assignments however they like. We’re also using Image, as well as CCK Imagefield with ImageCache. OG Resetter comes in super-handy, too.
This site represents 18 months of on-the-fly learning and development by a director of a non-profit. Premium has been functionality and reacting to what the teen writers wanted. Have had considerable help from Drupal community along the way.
