School IT Asset Management Guide

School IT Asset Management Guide

Technology in the classroom has evolved from being an unproven cost to a medium that enables learning, prompting large increases in IT hardware investments in school districts. As a result, districts have seen an influx of assets that are no longer “fixed,” thus proper IT Asset Management has become a high priority in optimizing financial management and compliance for these investments. To manage an asset effectively, it is important to understand the life-cycle of use of that asset from when it is acquired to the moment it’s disposed of. Doing so allows for the understanding of the total cost associated with that asset and how it supports key learning initiatives.
