    The Technology Department is responsible for the administration & maintenance of the Hillsdale Public School District technology infrastructure. Our department is responsible for overseeing all educational technology initiatives, purchases, training, and support agreements.
     
    The Technology Department is responsible for over 300 desktop computers, 250 Laptop Computers, 12 servers and variety of networking and video equipment. We have a Meru Wireless network that consists of Access Points and a Controller. Our network supports A,B,G and N.
     
    Each classroom contains a teacher workstation wired to a mounted television set or a projector for desktop viewing. Every classroom has a network printer and access to shared color printers located in common areas.  Our middle school is equipped with a television studio, that streams a live morning television show each day to every classroom through our Video Furnace network appliance.  Currently there are interactive projectors in each of our schools as well as wireless slates and document cameras available for classroom use.

     

    Our district operates a Wide Area Network allowing for data sharing and network administration for all 4 locations. Each school is fully networked with every classroom having network, Internet, and video access. All of our schools have a managed wireless A,B,G,N network, with 100% coverage throughout the schools.  Each faculty member has a unique username and password to access our network. They each receive a secured space on the schools server for file storage. Each faculty member has their own section on our district website which they maintain. All faculty members have an email address. There are shared student accounts that provide access to network share folders for file management. This allows for Administration, Faculty and Students to have access to their files from any computer in the district.

     

    The technology department also provides ongoing professional development for faculty, staff and administration. We have a commitment to advancing the integration of technology in curriculum and to integrate it into administrative tasks to improve our day to day operations.

     

    One of the best ways to improve is to communicate with those you serve.  -- Anonymous
