Running head: YOU DECIDE You Decide: Leonard Cooper Charter School Carmelita McNeill DeVry University, Charlotte Abstract This is paper on Leonard Cooper Charter School networking and print server. I will explain the problem and offer a solution to the situation. There are several in finding a resolution to resolve the issues. The first step requires interviewing the stakeholders of Leonard Cooper Charter School to hear the problems of the current system. This will help with determining what the network should be doing and how to go about getting it done.
