There are a lot of great things happening technology-wise at CSD! For starters, we doubled our internet speed from 50 Mbp/s to 100 Mbp/s in December 2015. We also revamped our network backbone to include enterprise-level wireless access points and network switches in order to support our rapidly growing need for fast data transmission both on our local network and over the internet which the federal erate program made possible.
Title I funds played a major role in our initiative to provide 200 classroom Chromeboxes for student use. This not only allowed us to provide 6 computers in each classroom, but also a second stationary computer lab consisting of 30 Chromeboxes in the Fall of 2015!
In the Spring of 2016, we replaced our antiquated staff laptops with new HP Probook 450 G3 models that will carry us for at least five years. Again, Title I funds are to thank for this much needed upgrade for our staff and will provide 39 new laptops this year alone!
In the Summer of 2017, we hope to use Title I funds to add a third stationary computer lab consisting of 30 Chromeboxes as well as a third mobile lab consisting of 30 HP laptops!
Stay tuned for more exciting CSD Technology news!
