We visited Dr. James Sebert, Superintendent of the Fond du Lac School District, on August 2, 2010. His district serves approximately 7,600 students and operates 14 school buildings, including nine elementary schools, three middle schools, a high school and an alternative high school for at-risk students.

Our visit focused on:
