For a long time we gave the teachers choice.. what ended up happening was
every time we cycled a teacher out of a room, there was a new choice.
Every 2-3 years we were swapping jacks or running new lines (older
buildings = less flexible infrastructure).  This happened with phones,
projectors, SmartBoards.....

When we put a new phone system in a couple of years ago we put them by the
door, no questions asked.  If the room changed purpose (became an office
suite, for example) then we allowed that to change.  It saved a lot of work.
