Our rules have been updated and given their own forum

I'm still working on a resume for the purpose of seeking other employment, but in the meantime I was considering asking for a raise in salary.
I have worked for my employer (a public school system) for 10 years.
I am the Network Technician for all 5 schools in the county. I have a supervisor who is paid 25% of his salary from the Technology budget, and therefore spends 25% of his time or less helping me. I am it, I'm the man, I'm the one on everyone's shit list when they can't print, can't turn on their computer, or can't figure out their iPad.
When I started we had 5 servers and around 150 computers that pretty much just ran Office, Email, and a couple of schoolwide applications. Now we have 18 servers, Nearly 400 computers/cell phones/iPads, full wireless networking in all 5 schools, and two dozen 3rd party applications that I have to support.
When I was hired, my starting salary was the same as a first year teacher's salary + $2k. Now my salary is $500 LESS THAN a first year teacher's and I've been here for 10 years. A 10 year teacher makes $5k more than I do.
Technically, I feel like I should be making the salary of a 10-year teacher +$2k.
I have no idea how to go about doing this, how to approach it, or what, if any, unspoken rules there are for such a thing. I just know I barely have the funds to pay all my bills every month and keep food on the table. I'm doing what I can to pay down some debts but it's really slow going and some extra salary would really help.
