New Tech for 2020-2021?
As we start the 2020-2021 school year staff and students will find many changes in district technology. The most notable, teaching staff will be trading in their desktop computers for laptop computers. The 3rd grade teachers will be receiving new active panels in their classrooms, and two new carts of Chromebooks will find their way into the middle school. The district will also be making a significant change to is networking infrastructure by replacing most of its older switch technology with new brocade/ruckus switches.
