The Client Service Specialists Team, Client Services Technician  and the System Support Specialists Team work on the Helpdesk answering phones as well as in the field solving technical issues.  Both of these groups work from a queue based ticketing system.  

Technology Support Specialists are assigned around 8 to 10 schools each and require tickets be submitted/escalated by building level Tech Coordinators or User Support Specialists unless other arrangements have been made for assistance.
