The attached is being sent to you on behalf of Michelle King, Senior Deputy Superintendent, School Operations.
- Memos aren't generally printed and sent out in school mail anymore, so this isn't a waste of paper and ink and toner and distribution resources – but in this email age it may be a waste of pixels and bandwidth and phosphors and screen time.
- “Superintendent_John@lausd.net” is kinda overly-friendly scary – though it eliminates the “Is it “DEE-see or DAY-see?” conundrum.
- But the chain-of-command/org chart/who-works-for-whom issue is weird. “The attached is being sent to you (by Superintendent John) on behalf of Michelle King, Senior Deputy Superintendent, School Operations?”
smf: This is so obvious (or oblivious) it’s not scary. But, belittling not-much, be afraid anyway…
