Background: The Director of Technology will reported on upgrade to systems and infrastructure as a result of the passage of Measure C.
There were four main areas affected by the recent passage of Measure C:
With last upgrade to network and its related servers and storage devices being done in 1999, significant work has been done on the infrastructure. Every school received new wiring to put a data drop in every classroom and wireless capability where appropriate. This network will allow the District to install Voice over Internet Protocol.
Over 600+ computers were installed at the school sites. These standardized computers will allow the lean Technology staff to remotely support the PCs.
A new training facility with standardized computers has been completed.
With a solid infrastructure and standardized computers, the District is positioned to roll out to two applications to the teacher's desktop: 1.) Online Attendance Tracking and 2.) Measures: Access to Student Achievement data.
The rollout of this standardized equipment and the inability of individual teachers to load software is a significant change for the District. Over the coming months, a process to review and approve authorized software will be implemented.
