Madison School District officials are floating a plan to start paying for needed building maintenance and renovation that would be funded in part by a rolling series of $26 million referendums held every 4 years, with each pot of resulting debt paid off before the next is issued.The referendums, if approved by voters starting in 2020, would yield $6.5 million per year that the district would match with $3.5 million from operating budget dollars — about double what the district normally...
Oaklawn Academy, an international Catholic boarding school for middle-school boys in rural Edgerton, hopes to start boarding a handful of older boys this fall who would take classes at Edgewood High School in Madison, at a total cost of $38,000 for room, board and tuition.As many as five former Oaklawn students could attend Edgewood when classes begin there in mid-August, Oaklawn vice principal Tom Ryan said.
The Madison School District has hired what might be the Madison Police Department's busiest retiree -- former South Side policing veteran and community policing pioneer Joe Balles -- to coordinate the district's safety and security operations on an interim basis through Aug. 31.And after that, the district wants to hire Balles as security chief outright, bringing extended stability to a position whose former occupant lasted less than three months.
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".
