Public Schools and RSS

The Colonel Mitchell Paige Middle School in La Quinta, California, is using RSS and podcasts to keep parents in touch with the day’s activities. There’s a podcast of the morning announcements. Some teachers are recording information about tests and how-to tips for students and parents. And other teachers are using RSS to let parents know about their child’s homework assignments.
I wonder how many public school libraries could help — or already are helping — their school by providing this sort of infrastructure?
