In one of the sessions on staffing the department, there was mention of an NAIS “approved” ratio for IT staff to devices. Can someone point me in the right direction, because I can’t see to convince Google to find it. Thanks.

I went to NAIS’ PGP for technology list and didn’t see any such reference. But if you search “Technology Staffing” on the site, you will find a 2007 article that says a school of 1100 students should have a staff of 6: Not sure if this is what was referenced. There’s also some interesting insight in this Tim Fish/Albert Throckmorton article: “Guiding Principles for Technology Funding” ( Would love to see that one updated!
