Cullman County Schools computer technicians Steve Mayo, right, and Shane Martin work on computers at the central office Thursday afternoon. Mayo has been with the system for 10 years, Martin since January. Each tech is responsible for repairing and maintaining approximately 1000 computers each. That doesn’t include updates to software and other issues involving tech support. After losing some technicians to other systems for higher pay, the school board updated the department’s salary schedule last year. Now, the school board is facing similar challenges in other departments.
