Recent Technology Upgrades

The department remains involved in a series of upgrades to the district's technology infrastructure. District upgrades include all Elementary Schools, Learning Center, and Career center. Efforts are underway to provide wireless density with increased coverage area using new Cisco/Brocade gigabyte switches, Cisco AC\5Ghz capable access points, and robust, properly scaled uninterruptable power supplies. Prior year upgrades (in excess of $1.5 million dollars via Erate) include fiber optic cabling, new gigabit capable switches, and new access points.

These upgrades have enabled students and teachers to access the internet faster while efforts are underway to equip classrooms with Chromebooks, Windows 10 computers, and short-throw projectors; Additionally, Office 365 and G Suite productivity and collaboration software migration is planned in the future.
