So this is a very similar setup we have, except that every network
jack in each classroom has been "run home" back to the network room so
there's no need for the switches in each classroom.

In your example, is the switch a managed or unmanaged switch? I guess
this is where I'm stuck.  It appears to me in that case you described,
there is not a need for a managed switch.  Or am I missing something?

Thank you
