Technology Support Index

The technology support index describes support capacity and efficiency for schools.  It is published by ISTE, and is a wonderful resource.

The only part I don’t like?  The document views having only one operating system as high efficiency - I agree that one OS is efficient, but not ideal - I think offering faculty a choice between 2 or 3 supported systems is the best way to go. I often talk about “what works best for the system administrator isn’t what works best for the school”.

For school administrators, I heartily recommend reviewing this document as a template for “how IT should function” in schools.
