How about all the administrators and drones at the school district offices at the 1st St. administration building, the Focht adminstration building on S. Main, and the massive N. Hydraulic St. support facility? Students seldom walk into any of these buildings but hundreds of non classroom district employees do.
Remember: The district has about 5,000 full time employees and about 46,000 students.
