The Technology Services Department is responsible for the day to day operations of our district network. We use the TechDesk system to have work orders generated by staff at each site.
District wide and network related assistance:
Our staff of Technology Support Specialists serve all sites and departments in the district. These specialists are split into two groups, each responding to work orders for a range of sites in either our "North Zone" or our "South Zone." Midway through the year, the teams will switch zones to support a new set of sites. This model of support allows us to be flexible with deploying personnel and helps build district-wide support capacity with our staff.
