RE: Computer to Tech. Ratio


At U32 we are running a 1 computer to 2 kids ratio.

1 Director/Network Admin /Techy / Cord. /Web Master / Software Engineer
1 Techy / Network Admin / Support / Web Master
3 Stipend Technology Leaders for the classroom

At the elementary schools  1 computer to 5 kids ratio 
1 .25 Director (me again)
2 full time Network Admins / Techy / Webmasters
2 partime Technology Leaders for the classroom

I think we need a true understanding of what a Coordinator does and a what a Director does.  Some of us are doing multiple rolls very well.
