Over the last few years, we have been able to upgrade all building-to-building communications to fiber-optic transmission lines as well as re-cable all schools to take advantage of those high-speed connections. We have upgraded all of the switches and routers throughout the district allowing faster access to internal district applications as well as internet access.

Wireless Access
We have increased the amount of wireless access points throughout the district with the intention of creating a "wireless district" that will enable scholars, teachers and staff to take advantage of devices that will enhance their capabilities. All schools are wireless campus wide. In addition, we have implemented a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment to allow those with wireless devices access to the internet safely and securely using our district-wide network authentication services.

Teacher and Staff Training
We offer training individual and small group sessions for teachers and staff covering areas such as district login requirements, use of our email system, Microsoft Office applications, and other areas which will allow our teachers and staff to become more efficient and take advantage of applications and resources.

District Support Applications
We provide applications that enable district-wide curriculum support for scholars and teachers as well as applications that protect all district users and assure that we adhere to the district's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and other federal, state or approved vendor requirements.

Resources such as Canvas, iReady, enCase, Accelerated Reader, SAM Spectra, MSIS, SEAS Web, Zoom, and other applications are provided for use by our teachers and scholars.

Cisco Umbrella enables us to provide safe and secure internet access to all district users. This filtering system ensures that dangerous and unwanted categories of websites are not accessible on our network while providing safe access to those websites that support educational and curriculum resources. In addition, we are able to filter requests from within and outside our network that do not adhere to our overall educational and curriculum objectives. Relay also affords us the ability to manage wireless devices so that scholars and teachers can access only those websites and applications that support those objectives.

Google is an online platform that allows scholars and teachers to collect, store and share information from a variety of sources. Scholars can save their assignments, research materials and other information in an environment that is accessible by internet anywhere allowing scholars and teachers the ability to communicate and collaborate.
