“T is for Tech Support” – Be pro-active early in the year and avoid potential problems around deadline time!


OK, we know today’s students were born with a computer mouse in their hands, but when it comes to school technology, you’re pretty limited due to necessary restrictions from the school district. That’s why establishing a positive relationship with your school and/or district IT person can make a HUGE difference in the success of your year. As soon as possible each August, contact the school or district IT person and discuss the following:

  • Any newly installed firewalls
  • Installation of all software necessary for page production (including fonts, Adobe Flash, and any supplementary program software)
  • Permissions
  • Yearbook server locations, accessibility and size

Then, remember to nurture this relationship throughout the year with a birthday card, a thank you note, or an offer to buy lunch. It’ll go a long way in keeping your computers glitch-free!
