The fire alarm was going off throughout the elementary school, but Susan Langlois, an English-as-a-Second-Language teacher, couldn't hear it, despite the hearing aids in her ears. The small group of first-graders in her classroom looked at the door and back at Langlois, confused. Unable to speak English, the children did not know how to communicate to their hard-of-hearing teacher that something was amiss and were never evacuated.
The Conroe Independent School District has opened submissions to residents for the naming of a new intermediate campus scheduled to open in August 2018. Those wishing to participate in nominating a name for the school facility, dubbed Flex 18, must ensure the submission follows board policy and guidelines, including sending in names that are either geographical areas, prominent individuals or public officials who have served in the district; or national or state heroes.
The Conroe Independent School District board unanimously approved Tuesday the appointment of the first principal of Grand Oaks High School, a new campus set to open next fall. Dr. Chris Povich, principal of York Junior High, was presented to the board by Superintendent Dr. Don Stockton to take on the role of top administrator at the high school whose mascot is the Grizzlies. "I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Povich for the last 20 years," Stockton told trustees at the July 19 meeting.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
