12 Needed Computer Lab Upgrades Elementary Labs have Mac OS X 10.3 Version not supported by NWEA Version not supported by Pearson Access (MCA-II Testing) Applications are no longer working the way they should -- Example: Firefox and I-Movie Replacing labs with PCs is more than likely

13 Mac Lab in Room 106 Similar position as elementary labs Mac OS X MB RAM -- Big issue

14 Business Lab PC lab slowing down immensely 4-5 years old, needing upgrade to keep up with technology resources, which is part of Technology Plan Needs Adobe DreamWeaver Needs higher capabilities

15 Two Ideas for Lab Upgrades Virtual Desktop labs in Elementaries 1 machine can run 6 computer places Lab of 30 computers would cost a little over $10,000, plus software licensing If one computer went down, 6 computer places would be unusable

16 Cont. Two Ideas for Lab Upgrades Minnesota Computers for Schools $175 per computer $5,250 for full lab of 30 computers Refurbished computers Windows XP installed licensing including free! 80 GB Hard Drive; 1 GB RAM Could get more powerful machines for just a little more

17 HS Library/Hallway Computer Lab 1 Mac lab needed at HS site Photo and Video Editing Software High Schoolers need that capability
