There is a very good article in this month's "Technology & Learning"
magazine called "Staffing Up for Technology Support" that, I think, very
accurately reflects the conditions and issues facing us with regard to
staffing in technology areas.
The magazine usually posts their major articles on their website at
http://www.techlearning.com/index1.html, but when I visited the site today,
they had not yet posted the March issue's articles.
I think this article would be a good one to give to school board members and
others who may need to understand that the need for technical and
professional support has evolved and increased, especially in the past
couple of years, and that the days of "jack (or Jill!) of all trades" tech
support are no longer as possible.
