Moving? Check for WMD's BEFORE you buy that house

Living within the zone of a WMD program at your local elementary school can be dangerous business. It can involve treating your child for long-term radiation damage if not permanent disability. Before you move, call ahead to the school and find out if the individual school within the district is using a program deemed "constructivist". To help you, we've listed below the most common constructivist programs on the market as well as a listing of districts known to use these programs.

Since this list will not be independently verified by this site owner, please be aware that you should always call ahead and not avoid a district just because it's listed and also not trust a district just because it's not listed. Schools and even teachers within a school can use programs independent of what is being used right next door. Check ahead. This list is just a quick public service to help you determine where WMD's have been spotted.

WMD Sightings (This list is no longer updated.  I have been sufficiently innundated by districts from all over the country that before you move anywhere you will want to find out if they are using one of the above programs.  I cannot continue to update this list manually anymore. EVERY state has issues in multiple districts. There are so many you cannot ignore trying to contact the district before moving there. )
