If you are planning your own local school initiatives, then yes, you should
plan for full support and organization of them -- including site assessment,
testing, logistics, delivery, and IT and RF infrastructure.  Of course there
are other groups dealing with precisely the same issues, so you won't be
entirely on your own.  The grassroots list was formed with the idea of
sharing experiences with some of these issues.
