The district is carefully reviewing classroom AV equipment for future installation. As a district, we want to match the new classroom technology to our instructional goals and objectives. We plan for the HEC, high school and middle school classrooms to be upgraded in the summer of 2019. North Aurelius and Alaiedon in the summer of 2020 and Steele in Phase 2.
Over the summer, technology improvements ($770,000+) will include replacing switch infrastructure in each building which is currently up to 14 years old. Wireless connectivity will be significantly improved across the district. Backup batteries will be installed in each building to provide at least one hour of power to phones in case of a power outage. In addition, the computer labs at the elementary schools and middle schools will be re-purposed, the business classes at the high school will be upgraded, and some PA systems will be improved.
