I am the "tech guy" at the West Rutland School... here is what we are doing:
1) Elementary school computer room runs Ubuntu 6.1 (and the students
and teachers love it)
2) High school & middle school computer classes are "dual boot"-- we
do probably 75% of our work in Windows and 25% in Ubuntu.
3) We use Open Office.
4) We use Ghost4Unix (as opposed to Symantec Ghost).
5) We are experimenting with some open source titles (for example cmap
tools, a few science applications, etc.)
Yes, I am interested in joining an open source users group.
