With so much new technology converging in the K-12 environment, it is quickly becoming too much for one person, or even an internal IT department, to handle. To review your school district's current state of technology we have developed a series of technology assessments
that can be implemented quickly and affordably. These IT assessments provide a simple audit for your district's readiness to upgrade equipment, to prepare for your next round of strategic planning, to introduce new technology into your current infrastructure, to address new challenges, such as online testing, or simply to assess your current spending and how you might be able to save funds.
The assessment process begins with a series of conversations/interviews with key district administration about your short and long-term goals and desired solutions. We then learn about your current environment through a series of onsite visits to collect data and details in the following areas: Infrastructure, Endpoints, Telecommunications, Security and Safety, Applications, Operations and Services.
Once the interviews and data collection processes are complete our experienced team evaluates the data to compile a complete list of suggestions and recommend solutions to the district. The final assessment outputs include a personalized scorecard that graphically portrays your current technology status and indicates areas of relative strength and weakness; additionally we provide an Executive Summary for administrative/Board presentation that portrays your current state in non-technical terms and relates your technology status to teaching and learning issues.
We are currently executing two “State of the Technology
” assessments at both Beaver
School Districts. Both projects are scheduled for completion by the end of March 2012.
