Our network consists of 11 servers run on fiber to all 7 buildings in the district. The district has 17 computer labs available to students and staff and we are constantly focused on increasing access to students and staff!
We also service and maintain the video systems which include projectors in all classrooms, video feeds throughout the district, and active TV studios in some schools. The Community Room at the Central Service Facility is equipped with excellent presentation technology that is not only greatly used by the district, but several other groups in the community.
We also service and maintain the VOIP phone system for our district. This consists of hundreds of phones, with every room having phone access.
