    Lose the ICT suite. Gain a smaller room with a horrible window looking into two classrooms. Lose 19 computers and a fraction of my workload. Cry myself to sleep. Data entry. Make tea. Find summer job.

    finally found out what our budget for september is today so can start making plans, getting ees licencing in place as well as a new file server are first on the list followed by sorting out new images for everything.

    im also hoping to get all of our copiers replaced and papercut mf implimented... just wish these damn companies would email quotes/price lists rather than insisting on face to face meetings for everything

    Mine was to replace every remaining PC's HDD with SSD, but we've started early. Otherwise it'll be pretty quiet - some server upgrades and retirements, clear our office for redecoration/carpet/new cabling. Should be good.

    Installing new PC's and laptops.
    wiping and rebuilding our Mac server.
    Moving, re cabling and setting up two IT classes.
    Finishing adding all of the support staff to next years timetable.
    possibly having 20 new projectors and smartboards installed.
    creating all of the new user accounts for next year.
    backing up and removing all of the old staff and pupil accounts.

    And they wonder why I want my technician for three weeks instead of two, I do actually want to take a holiday in the summer you now.

    SSDs in as many machines as cash and time will allow, hopefully 60'ish

    Couple of office moves to help with, couple of new rooms for 6th form to setup
    Support our lets who use our school and equipment for nearly the whole 8 weeks.
