K-20 Network Technical Support
State funding supports K-12 schools on the K-20 network through highly skilled technical staff in Regional Institutional Technical Units (RITU). The RITUs are based in each of the nine Educational Service Districts (ESDs).
RITU staff deliver direct technical support for the network
and represent their ESDs on a working group that directs the technical, procedural, policy and fiscal components of the network’s K-12 sector. These lightly staffed, highly capable units deliver
fast and effective trouble-shooting
on a large scale: RITU staff resolve hundreds of trouble tickets annually, solving connectivity and technical problems for school districts across Washington.
