July Update from the Tech Office

Most of the technology equipment has been ordered, and we will continue to see new arrivals come in the next few weeks.

In fact, the new student netbooks for this year's incoming Freshmen just arrived today.

Been keeping busy, with ordering things and getting a few new laptops ready for staff members.

Also have recieved the new computers for the Roland Colony school, and will be working on getting them ready as well, however, I will complete all the student machines first.

Chromebooks and Carts should be coming in at anytime.

The next few weeks will be very busy, hopeful that I will have everything ready in time.  Although, I'm sure I will... but sometimes unexpected problems come up.

And What's a Friday blog post without a Friday Video?

Here's the new single from an old band... Toad the Wet Sprockets "New Constellation"

Update from the Tech Office

Staff laptops have been ordered and should be in shortly.

Laptops for the Roland Colony School have been ordered and will also arrive in a few moments.

Narrowing down on a vendor on our student netbooks we are ordering for the freshmen.  Should be ordered hopefully by the end of the week.

Also looking at ordering a new laptop cart for the "mobile lab".

Narrowing in on ordering 30 chromebooks with a mobile cart for them as well.

So we'll have a mobile chromebook lab, and a mobile windows 7 lab.

Working on getting the Symantec antivirus program up and running on our windows machines.

Also will be installing the Forticlient management system installed on the student machines.

Things will be coming together for the new school year in the next 3 or 4 weeks.

Hope everyone is having a great summer.  I've been busy attending alot of Basketball camps, and watching alot of little league baseball this summer.
