I was the architect and project manager on the district side. I worked with multiple project managers for each of the vendors that we had in to do the big big stuff (pulling 500,000 feet of cable, etc)You sure seem like you are the boss!
Luckily I had the full support of my boss (IT Director) and the rest of the district administration in implementing this. She had her own projects to worry about. We also moved our student information system to a completely new vendor and she was busy working with the curriculum department aligning our technology goals to state standards.
