Lab Upgrades

  • Computers were purchased using the school district Capital Tech Funds to replace the computers in the following labs:
    • Middle School 405
    • High School Focus Lab
    • Chimacum Creek Primary Lab
    • High School 108 Lab
    • Elementary School 925 Lab
       
  • Machines taken from these labs are being sorted so that machines past the end of their “life cycle” are decommissioned securely and donated or sold to earn funds to the school’s general budget
     
  • Machines taken from these labs that are using technology less than 6 years old (the recommended shelf life) are being recommissioned to be distributed as needed to classrooms, offices, and other locations

 

Teacher Laptops

  • Laptops were purchased using the school district Capital Tech Funds to replace every teacher computer currently in circulation
     
  • These are being rolled out one at a time with a full distribution expected to be completed by March of 2016
     
  • Teachers currently using Macs are being offered the opportunity to receive free training on how to accomplish the same tasks on these PC laptops that they currently perform on their Macs.  Their Macs are also not being taken from them until/unless they decide they feel comfortable fully transitioning to a PC laptop.
     
  • Laptops taken from teachers are being sorted so that machines past the end of their “life cycle” are decommissioned securely and donated or sold to earn funds to the school’s general budget

Internet Speed Upgrade

  • Our internet speed was upgraded from 100Mb/s to 1Gb/s on the evening of 2016/01/07

 

  • Our network lines between the main campus, primary school, and transportation building were given their own dedicated machine so that internet usage did not affect local network data speed between the buildings
