• Question: "What technology items need to be approved by the District Technology Department prior to purchase?"

    Answer: Technology items needing approval are any items: designed to run on or work with an existing computer, electronic device, or connection to the district/site computer or telephone networks.  This includes any item that is attached to (internally, externally, or wireless), or installed on (i.e. all software) an existing piece of network equipment or end-user device.  

    All technology items must be approved prior to any purchase (including employee reimbursements, credit card purchases, on-line orders, purchases made on existing open PO's, ASB POs, etc.) regardless of the funding source.



    These are some of the more common examples:
