Eric: I understand the problem!! We even have technology coordinators that aren't using some very good materials to look at program. Have your admin. read the CoSn Total Cost of Operation stuff?

I have looked at this and other published recommendations, but as you know administrators want information about what's "really being done" rather than the "ideals". This seems particularly true as VT schools begin to hire "Ed tech Specialists" rather than "all-in-one" staff that may have been sufficient in the past. When will administrators begin to realize that recommendations like those of ISTE are research based and widely accepted? Eric Eric: The ISTE Support Index is very useful for answering some of your questions. http://tsi.iste.org/ Frank On Dec 1, 2004, at 11:17 AM, Eric Hall wrote: Hello All - I know this is a question that has come up in this forum recently and may be on many minds: we are in the process of evaluating/increasing our staffing for technology, and my administrators are looking for examples of how other schools in Vermont are handling technical support, instruction and classroom (integration) support. Any quick response to the following would be helpful: # of workstations (rough is fine): # of students/classrooms: IT admin position? (SU or local): # of "technical" staff (technicians, SU or local): # of "direct" instructional staff (lab setting): # of staff/student/integration support staff: Qualifications of technicians? Our current situation is: 675 students (K-8) 320+ workstations 34 classrooms (K-8) No SU level positions 1 "local" coordinator/technician/lab instructor/integration support .5 technician (low level of training) Thanks for your help!
