WAN – Wide Area Network
As the need increases for students and teachers to access electronic resources, the inadequacies of the current District 6 technology system had to be addressed. The District received an E-rate grant from the federal government to upgrade the system. The new system will increase capacity to use Internet-based multimedia educational materials and will greatly increase access, reliability and response time.
In basic terms, we multiplied the amount of devices each transceiver could handle, making it more efficient for students and teachers.
We are extremely grateful to our sponsor of this project – JBS who contributed $20,000. This project was the first and very necessary step in our commitment to supporting technology innovation for our students.
