Recent studies indicate that half of all teachers who have access to technology in their schools do not make use of it in their instruction. The time has come for states and school districts to examine the potential of instructional technology leadership in the schools to address teacher training and support needs. In considering what type of roles instructional technology leaders might play in the schools, it is prudent to examine what models are already in place. An exploratory national survey was conducted to determine the presence of licensed IT professionals in school-based settings. Results were gathered through multiple channels: via the Internet, e-mail, and telephone interview. Results and implications of the study are presented.
