· We’ve moved.
o The weather delayed the crossover of communication equipment and wires form the old building to our new facility.
o Most of the communication equipment and wires were in place by Wednesday late morning. At that time the only school left without data communications was the Middle School (MS). I was finely able to get the data line back in working order around 9:30 pm. on Thursday
o The fiber connection between the new District Office (DO) and High School (HS) worked as planned. This will bring better stability and connectivity to the HS for data/network services.
o Also having better stability and connectivity is the Elementary School (ES). With the DO housed within the ES facility, data/network services are improved.
o As of Friday, Bryan and I have been finishing up incidental issues with the move.
· With the new board and conference room completion, VTEL (Video/Telephone Conferencing) will now be up and operational. This is exciting news for the district. It should open up several opportunities.
· Currently this department is working with Dr. Adler on the Title IID - Enhancing Education through Technology Competitive Grant.
