Our goals in the purchase include beginning our Chromebook 1:1 program, refining our understanding of the SSIP purchasing protocols, enhancing student access to the internet, and improving school safety. A brief description and rationale for each item follows.

Chromebooks: The district will use these begin the 1:1 Chromebook program.

Security Cameras: Sixteen units will be added to the existing sixteen cameras currently in use.

Surveillance Network Video Recorder/File Server and 48-port POE Data Switches: This will replace the outdated 16 port VCR deck currently in use. The recorder/server will support the expansion of the camera security system. Wires have been pulled and the final step is the purchase and installation of sixteen cameras, the switches, and the recorder.

Wireless Access on School Buses: Wireless hotspots will be purchased and installed on school buses to enhance student access to the internet on bus rides to and from school, sporting events, curricular trips, and extracurricular events.
