Last Week of School
Summer vacation is almost upon us. As you saw from earlier communication this week, students' last day of school is the Wednesday. We've accomplished quite a bit this year and you should break your arm patting yourself on the back.
- The Aruba NAC transition has been huge and we'll continue converting elementary sites as time permits.
- The 1:1 program at Arthur has been a tremendous success.
- The new call manager installed over Spring Break is working like a charm, although we need 200K in licensing in order to convert the district to the new call manager. The new helpdesk reports from the call manager are amazing and truly useful.
- Wrapping our minds around E-Rate billing since Sue's retirement.
- We are almost 1 month away from go-live with Infinite Campus, our new Student Information System after 19 years on TERMS. Can you believe we've been doing this for almost 2 years! There will be some bumps, but nothing we can't handle.
- The testing season was just about perfect!
- Surviving an internal reorganization of IT Services. I know that took the wind out of the sails, but we continue to serve students without missing a beat.
- We've built a BYOD network and are awaiting testing with schools in order to solidify our service offering.
- We've build a new Guest Internet Access system that goes live mid-July. Procedure hasn't changes, as sponsors will submit a service request in ServicePRO.
- The filter complaints have been minimal this year with the default filter being set to a student filter, thereby maximizing instructional time with mobile devices.
- Atomic Learning has been a huge success at 23.7K video viewed by OKCPS staff. At 77K per year, that's $3.25 dollars per video viewed, which is cheap for self-directed online PD.
I do very much appreciate your work and the services you provide to OKCPS. We are a vital organ that is absolutely critical for OKCPS success.
