What needs unblocked

Good evening. I just wanted to share my frustration as a teacher with certain websites being blocked by a school district. I teach environmental science at the High school level and my students and I have been focused in on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. My brother-in-law is part of the air force that is dropping chemicals on the oil spill to help clean it up. This is the first time in history this has been done and I would love to have him talk with my students about it. The problem is he probably won't be home until school is out. I would love to be able to use Skype and have him explain to the students exactly what he is doing but Skype is blocked by our school district. Arg!!!! If Skype was blocked by your school district and you were able to get it unblocked I would love to hear how you did it.
