That sounds like a great program AND a great idea to free up the IT department for critical issues. It doesn't take a genius to ask if you've restarted the computer!
If it offers certifications that the student can take out into the working world, it's worthwhile. If it doesn't, it's just cheap labor. An expansion of the old A/V geek squad (not used as a pejorative, just the most apt descriptor.)
IT and technology integration has lagged behind IT and technology in schools for decades now, partly because the kids often know more than their teachers. Properly tapped, managed and utilized, it's a problem solver. Whoever leads this program had better be up to the security challenges.
