Why: To give instructions to M&O, IT & Site Administration with a consistent process which will increase efficiency and consistency in repairing Specialty Systems on school sites
What: Facilitating the speedy repair, maintenance, and upgrades to specialty system.
When: Any time a speciality system device is in need of repair or maintenance, or when there are questions about the use, and ability of speciality system.
Who: While M&O and IT are always available as a resource and typically support the installation of these devices, the on-going repair, upgrades and maintenance is NOT always with M&O or IT. Often times, an outside service provider will be used when the repair or maintenance involves specialized or technical experience and knowledge relevant to a Special System or in emergency situations. In addition, there may be times where the repair, upgrades or maintenance is incidental to the purchase/lease of a Special System. See Education Code section 45103.1(b)(2),(3) and (7).
