Minimum Teacher Tech Requirements

While I was at the ECIS annual conference I started creating a list of what are the minimum requirements for teachers in our school for using the technology that they have. I know that this is somewhat specific to our school but I am interested in what other people think should be on the list.  I also think that some of the things on this list need to have a “source of reference” as in a guidebook for teachers or something along that line. There are many things on the list that do not happen regularly and a teacher may need something to “remind” them of the steps.  I would love to get some feedback on this.
