    What is a Network Manager?

    As Network Manager it is my responsibility to ensure our staff, students, and parents have reliable access to the centralized servers and storage, Internet web sites, network printers, and other technological resources needed to support modern classrooms. I am available to meet with site personnel to discuss wireless issues, telecommunications & networking needs, equipment compatibility, and server/storage requirements. I also contribute both design and content to our DCC web site which we hope is a valuable technology resource for our district and the Internet community.

    The Schools & Libraries Division (SLD) of the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) is the agency the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has entrusted with the responsibility of disbursing federal "E-Rate" technology funds to public libraries and schools. If we wish to receive our share of those funds, the SLD requires we comply with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) to prevent obscene, pornographic, and harmful Internet content from reaching our computers. As administrator of our district Internet filtering system and as a member of our district E-Rate team, I attempt to balance the legislative and administrative concerns (protection & privacy) for our educational environment with the libertarian rights (free speech & freedom of information) guaranteed the citizens of our democratic society.

    If you need to report a technological problem then you should submit a Technology Work Request to the District Computer Center. If you have an emergency affecting a large number of people at your site then you may also want to contact Kim Sullivan, our secretary, so she can see that the appropriate people are made aware of the problem as quickly as possible. In times of crises this allows other staff and telephones to be focused on resolving the problem. Non-emergency technical support questions may be directed to our technical support staff.

    District Computer Center Secretary
    We are lucky to have such an efficient secretary who can keep the rest of us on track. If you have a site emergency you should contact her so she can locate and inform the appropriate people. We try to keep her updated on all site and district-level emergencies so she can serve as our point of contact while we focus on resolving the problems.
    Our district is very fortunate to have several tech-savvy librarians, teachers, and administrators who help manage many of the day-to-day technology needs at their sites. We have designated technology liasons - or "Site Contacts" - for each campus. We also maintain a schedule of regular meetings where Site Contacts can discuss their needs and concerns with each other and with our district technical support staff.
