Hello to all!

I am hoping you are willing to tell me what you currently do at your
school as far as network administrator work goes. Do you have a network
administrator, a network engineer, or do you have a company that watches
over your network?

Thank you in advance for any and all advice/information.

I do everything. I have an engineer that comes in as needed (perhaps 40-50
hours a year).
