Arizona Google Apps for Education Map - Have you wanted to visit other schools using Google Apps for Education? Have you wondered if any other districts around you are using GAFE? Are you trying to get your district or school to "Go Google", but aren't sure where to start?

I have a teacher that created a Google Custom Search Engine for her students to use for research on a particular topic. It was working fine last week, but this week it is not showing any results. Has anyone else had this same problem recently, or any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks!
