ED TECH TIDBITS
A FEW REMINDERS IN REFERENCE TO YOUR CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY:
2-5 Classrooms: All 2-5 classrooms should each have a student computer station with 4 desktops. If you have not set up your desktops, please do so, as you should be utilizing them for small group learning stations.
K-1 Classrooms: All K-1 classrooms should each have 4 laptops for student use in each computer station.
Ensure your desktops/laptops are in working order and submit service tickets to TS as needed. Keep in mind that TS must 1st service any devices that you feel may not be working and either repair or notify you of need for surplus.
MOBILE LAB CARTS:
If you feel that a laptop/desktop is no longer working, you must FIRST contact TS to have a technician troubleshoot. A TS Technician must determine if that machine is fixable or should be surplussed.
If an item is identified for surplus, please email me with RPS tag # of item along with a description and TS service ticket # to indicate item has been identified as surplus (ex: RPS tag #765832, Hp Compaq Desktop, service ticket #323175).
NOTE: Technology items should NOT be moved out of classrooms to surplus area without going through this process.
