Included in the various services offered are assistance with:
- preventative maintenance services;
- regular, on-site support and related training;
- remote assistance when not on-site;
- administrative network management and disaster recovery planning;
- short- and long-term technology planning; and
- arrangements for group discount purchases on like-equipment or software across districts.
Network Services staff are available to provide technical consultation, support and training on a daily basis. We will also provide free estimates with not to exceed pricing for special projects.
Our primary audience is the small- to medium-sized district with a less-than-full-time technology coordinator, whose duties may also include teaching, transportation, coaching or other duties as assigned.
Districts of any size, even those with full-time technology coordinators, can also benefit from becoming an NSC member. Technology coordinators can draw from the NSC staffs knowledge and expertise in a consulting capacity, request research assistance on a difficult issue or arrange for an extra pair of hands for major projects.
What an NSC membership brings to the district is access to highly skilled, knowledgeable staff dedicated to quality service and a team that can help you ensure a stable, secure and reliable network.
