      • Troubleshooting of common technology issues
      • Google Apps and web support
      • Training new students on FLHS technology practices
    • Support high school staff by:
      • Serving as tech assistants during technology rich lessons
      • Helping technical staff set up and manage hardware and software
      • Providing building staff with tech support of hardware and software

    How do I apply?

    Team members are part of a for-credit technology course designed as a vocational learning experience.
    • Students must apply and be accepted to join the team. 
      • You should register for the course as though you will be accepted, and then complete the application.
      • See the application page to learn more.
    • For Tech Team I (a student's first year on the team) a student must register for a 1 credit commitment (equivalent of 2 high school courses) during a single academic year.
    • For Tech Team II (only for students who have successfully completed Tech Team I) - students may register for 0.5 OR 1.0 credits per year. (students must reapply for acceptance into Tech Team II)

    What do student techs do?

    As a member of the Tech Team, students will spend their assigned class time staffing a “help desk”. Students are available for spontaneous problem solving, and they assist staff as necessary. While working on the team, students are expected to:
    • interact with other students and staff in a professional and business-like manner
    • show work ethics appropriate for any professional environment
    • develop and demonstrate technical abilities and communication skills
    • demonstrate self direction and personal initiative
    • develop good time management skills
    • take directions from superiors
    • work well with others

    What happens in Tech II (second year experience)?

    In addition, Tech Team II students are expected to:
    • continue to work the help desk and do building support
    • assist in training and supporting Tech Team I students
    • provide deeper support for building needs
