1 Network/Technology Infrastructure Plan As prepared for the TUSD Governing Board Summer 2007 John Bratcher Network Security Systems Analyst

2 Main Goal of plan Develop a technology infrastructure plan to address the district technology needs to support student achievement and effective business support services for the next 5-10 years Supplement to the Approved Technology Plan approved by the Governing Board June 2006 Working Document that will guide decision-making

3 Executive Summary Key items about plan To support long-term decisions made relating to technology infrastructure Supports District Educational Technology Plan An understanding and knowledge of what infrastructure exists AND what is needed for the future

4 Executive Summary Process for developing document: The historical context of how technology developed in TUSD The documentation of the current infrastructure status Identification of stakeholder needs and priorities using a survey of employees, parents and community members

5 Executive Summary Process for developing document: A comparison of existing infrastructure to industry standards and recommendations The development of recommendations to bridge the gap to improve the infrastructure to support the educational technology plan and business services An analysis of the gap between our current status, stakeholder needs and priorities and industry standards

6 Executive Summary The expected outcomes: Establish a district standard of technology / infrastructure capacity for all classrooms Establish a district standard of technology / infrastructure capacity for ALL school sites Establish a district standard of technology / infrastructure capacity to meet business support needs

7 Executive Summary Analyze the differences between our existing infrastructure and our recommended district standards to develop recommendations for necessary upgrades Propose sequence of actions to bring classrooms, schools, and offices up to standard Estimate costs and identify sources of funding to achieve these goals

8 Executive Summary Potential funding sources: Bond* E-Rate Building Renewal Other Capital Funds Other Funds to be Determined * guidelines have changed

10 Purpose The following goals were established to ensure successful implementation of the plan: Document existing infrastructure Identify current and future stakeholder needs Establish district infrastructure standards to meet our future needs Develop an action plan and budget/funding parameters to move from our existing infrastructure to the upgraded district network infrastructure needed to support current and future academic and business needs

11 Purpose Members: Lorrane McPhereson John Bratcher Mary Veres Bob Holt Cherie Odeski Chris Van Dyke Al Manzo Mark Miller

12 Purpose Why these members: Lorrane McPhereson –Facilitator / eRate John Bratcher – Desktops, Servers, Data Networks Mary Veres – TS Executive Sponsor Bob Holt – Disaster Recovery / Back-ups Cherie Odeski - Purchasing Chris Van Dyke - Education Al Manzo – Telecomm Networks Mark Miller – eRate compliance

13 Historical Context Evolution of Technology in TUSD Business Computing Student Information Management Local Area Networks Individual departments/schools Wide Area Network 1999 Bond Project SFB Project Telecommunications Individual circuits to PBX

14 TUSDs Existing Network Infrastructure Converged network – voice and data travel over the same physical cables 5 sites act as WAN hubs WAN uses primarily T-1 (1.54 Mbps) and DS-3 (45 Mbps) circuits to connect schools to hub sites LANs primarily operate at 100 Mbps Internet uplink operates at 75 Mbps

16 Data and Internet Services

17 Data and Internet Services – today*****

18 Wireless LAN vs Wireless WAN

19 Bandwidth Contexts ComputerIDFMDFHub Site Internet Morrow Hub 100 Mbps bandwidth on LAN 1 Gbps bandwidth on LAN 1.5 Mbps bandwidth on WAN 45 Mbps bandwidth on WAN 145 Mbps ISP Uplink

20 Bandwidth Contexts – today***** ComputerIDFMDFHub Site Internet Morrow Hub 100 Mbps bandwidth on LAN 1 Gbps bandwidth on LAN 1.5 Mbps bandwidth on WAN 45 Mbps bandwidth on WAN 100 Mbps ISP Uplink – today*****

21 Voice Services Historical Perspective Each phone/fax had its own circuit Current PBX WAN Configuration Not completed resulting in problems with: 911 – provides site address not location of the phone Voice Message functions are limited Caller ID disabled These will be corrected with planned E-Rate funded upgrades

22 Specialized systems that depend on the network Environmental Management Control Systems (EMCS) Fire Alarm System Security Alarm/ Video Surveillance System Access Control System Irrigation Systems Distance Learning Systems Conference Bridge System Remote Access (VPN) for staff and teachers (limited) TUSD Television Broadcasting System

23 Needs Assessment/Priorities Survey TUSD staff 2000 Parents/community members 65% of responders rated themselves as average tech users 62% of responders had DSL/Cable internet access at home 25% of responders did NOT have internet access at home

24 Greatest potential for increasing student achievement More computers in the classroom Access to more computer labs Up to date websites Interactive white boards in every classroom More on-line classes Digital curriculum On-line texts Use of digital cameras/video production Streaming video/Video-on-demand

25 Greatest Obstacles Computers operate too slowly Internet connections are slow Out of data hardware/software Lack of training for technology Lack of technology support Lack of instruction in technology Limited access of TUSD network from home
