  • Technology Budget Presentation 2010-2011 March 23, 2010
  • Technology at MSD In truth, there are very few functions or activities that take place within the Methacton School District that do not, in one way or another, involve systems, equipment, applications or staff offered and maintained by the Technology Department.
  • Technology at MSD We deal with a double-edged sword. We realize that technology is primarily a tool, not a goal or destination. Technology needs to work when people need it to work. When it does, it is often taken for granted. When something does not work as expected, that is when people tend to notice us. One of our tasks is to make sure that we are remembered before things break, to keep ahead of the curve in providing what our users (students, staff and parents) need.
  • Technology Support at MSD Technology Supervisor Technicians (4) Network Administrator (1) Secretary (1) Data Application Specialist (1) Technology Integration Specialist (3) Job Tasks include: •Specification and Acquisition of Equipment and Apps •Software and Equipment Installation •Setup and Configuration •Troubleshooting, Diagnostics and Repair •Planning, Research •Staff Training •Q&A

  • Budget Reductions to Date • Eliminated the purchase of cyclic replacement computers for students, staff and administration. • Eliminated purchase of printers for age-based block replacement, in favor of failure based replacement • Elimination of purchase of additional periperals (smart boards, projectors, televisions, cameras, etc.) • Eliminated purchase of sets of wireless microphone/amplifiers for teachers • Delaying purchase of additional seats of elementary classroom software pending proof of need • Reduced funds held as ‘Tech Reserve’ (unplanned failure replacement) • Changed vendor/provider of district anti-virus application for substantial saving in license fees • Elimination of second video camera at Board meetings
  • Cost Savings Ideas • Reduction in default printer settings for majority of district printers (task dependent) • Reexamining computer Shutdown/Standby configuration vs. off-hours update configuration • Reallocation of existing computers within the district for more effective location/utilization • Temporary deferral of computer operating system upgrade path
