Here are eight keys to laying the backbone for your district's technology program:
1. Assess your power needs. If you want a lot of computers, you'll need enough power to run them, as well as the necessary cooling systems to keep your equipment happy.
2. Identify suitable places for your cable closets. Again, be sure these areas have enough power and cooling capabilities.
3. Build in surge protection. If planning a new building, be sure to have the architect include this feature, as well as color-coded outlets in the classrooms.
