Sounds like you are trying to make the best of the situation at hand
there. Just always remember, You are stepping on a woman's domain
here,,,:-) The first time running the Imacs as TC's and one hiccups,you
WILL be the goat in the female teachers lounge, as you know full well
how these old hens network! (That was a joke).
As you said, kind of ironic that the money you DID save the district
there utilizing TC's gives these people the opportune to "get what they
want". You just have to try and pacify everyone in the mix I have found.
Like the old Louis Armstrong song goes " Wouldnt it be a Wonderful
World" if everyone would embrace the K12LTSP/ K12Linux approach in any
school/library/state office setting. Downside: Would put a lot of
"network guys" out of a job, not having to chase viruses,failed
hardware,file corruption, and on and on!
Stated many times before, when she and the higher ups sees Macs costing
$1000/piece versus TC at $250/piece, instantly $250=weak,,,:-)
This is the mindset referred to in the REAL world as 'simple'.

Take Care,
