Technology Support

 

 
ITS Technology is rapidly changing the face of the way we instruct, facilitate and operate at Wayne County Public Schools. There is a great demand for effective and relevant software for classroom instruction, student research, information retrieval, and administration of schools and departments. The requirements for properly operating hardware and peripherals to run these applications are increasing. The staff of the Diagnostic Center daily meets these needs by repairing the computer hardware and other technology used to support the instruction at and administration of our schools and departments. We also provide support for each site's local area computer network and the school system's wide area computer network; consult with principals and administrators on network infrastructure and technology purchases and upgrades, and provide a wide variety of other services.
 
  
Repair Requests:
Only designated personnel at each school may submit technology repair request, and only then after basic troubleshooting has been completed at the school level.  Your media coordinator, technology mentor, or principal can identify the repair request coordinator for your location.
