2016 Q1 Update

Written by on . Posted in IT - Information Technology

Upgrades completed in summer of 2015: The network at the HS/MS was upgraded with new 10GB fiber and new 10GB switches.  Once the smart schools money comes in Burton St will be done with new Fiber and Switches to bring them to 10GB. We were at 1GB. This spring all wireless access points will be upgraded with the new wireless a/c technology. This is all being done to put the network in a good shape to handle online testing and the thousands of devices that connect to it on a daily basis.
  • Computers should never take more than 1-2 min max to log in. If they do a work order/call/email needs to happen asap to address the problem.
  • For inservice courses I would bring the concerns to Terry Ward. Now that he is in his new roll he can make sure this is happening. I do know this current year there are several Tech inservices being offered in Google classroom, Google Apps and using Chromebooks.
  • I can talk with Terry to see what he can do. Do you have any specific your looking for? Other than whats being offered this year?
