Now, we’re no economic experts, but if you take a look at last year’s federal budget something is definitely wrong. This year just 4% of the federal budget is dedicated to education, and that percentage is projected to shrink to 3% in 2016.
Schools do get more money from the states and their districts, but it still doesn’t come close to the amount required to provide all of our nation’s children with the education they deserve.
Any school that is forced to cut back should look to their IT expenses first, as outsourcing your IT support with the right provider will allow you to pull off a near-impossible trick, the 7 – 10 split of budgeting: cutting costs without sacrificing anything.
Here are a couple questions you should ask to make sure you get the right provider should you decide to outsource IT support for your school:

How Are You Going To Reduce My IT Budget?
We just told you in the previous section that “outsourcing your IT needs to Colorado Computer Support will free of up more room in your budget,” but we moved on before actually explaining how we accomplish that goal.
Allow us to pick up the slack here and explain exactly how we will save you money.
With a small amount of funds to work with, it’s hard enough for most schools just to pay their teachers, so it’s pretty rare for them to have their own in-house IT department. Rather, they’ll get by as best they can with the help of tech-inclined parent and teacher volunteers.
These volunteers are helpful, but they don’t provide the skill set or resources that are used by IT professional to keep your network truly reliable and secure. As a result, schools that depend on volunteers most likely have a network that is prone to web-based attacks and hardware failures.
Colorado Computer Support offers the best of both worlds: you’ll get the level of service you need, at a price you can actually afford. For less than the cost of a single full-time in-house IT worker, we’ll secure your network, maintain your hardware, support your software, and virtualize your servers. Also, you’ll get direct access to high-end IT talent for advanced strategy and long-term planning.
Our solution focuses on being proactive and actively preventing downtime rather than losing focus when there isn’t an immediate problem to solve. With our help you’ll have less malware infections, more reliable hardware, and fewer instances of downtime. Preventing disaster will greatly reduce your IT expenses: and that’s how we reduce your budget.
Unfortunately, we can’t get schools the funding they truly deserve. What we can do is help you get the most value possible out of a limited IT budget. Contact us at (719) 355-2440 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
