2 Majority (> 50%) old workstations; 7,000 to 18,000… Bandwidth : k, now 10 MB Internet: now in all classrooms, I-based access to data; on-line information systems, i.e. access from home District-wide software: /Outlook, SPAM, Office; Pearson; ALS; United Streaming; Autodial absences, food lunch balances, emergency notices; Altiris – network-based management… Printers-every school 45ppm; all lasers… Tech specialists, Zone Techs…

3 Best Practices That Optimize Infrastructure Source:GCR & IDC data analyzed by Microsoft, 2006 Multiple Directories Multiple directories No WS Management Many passwords; SDcalls Manual user provisioning Single directory for Auth One authentication directory $1320/WS Cost$580/WS Cost$230/WS Cost Automated provisioning Meta directory Single Sign-on Auto password reset Auto user provisioning None No WS life cycle strategy Many hardware configs Many software config Many images Standardization 3 or 4 yr WS refresh Few hardware configs Few software configs Minimal # of images Stds Compliance Compliance auditing Compliance Enforcement Automated SW Distribution Minimal WS Security Anti-virus Reactive security Limited WS Security PC firewall Automated patching Comprehensive WS Security Anti Spyware Network Access Control Comprehensive PC Security = $160/WS Savings Standardization & Standards Compliance = $220/WS Savings Identity Management = $210/WS Savings

4 Basic Level School Technology Standard Review/discuss basic standards Make recommendations on changes/additions Discuss other items for inclusion into the basic standards

5 Caution!! This is not a wish list Every item has a cost We cant ask for the moon, because we wont get it Must be reasonable and make trade-offs Must haves Nice to have

6 Basic Standard – Assistive Technology Special needs accommodations Specialized hardware (examples) Braille printers High Speed Scanner CCTV for vision impaired Adaptive keyboards/switches/etc Specialized software (examples) Magnification Text-to-speech Study skill tools

7 Basic Computer Standards Student (workstations & labs) School Staff (Teacher & others) District Administrative & Others

8 Basic Computer Standards Student Workstations 1:15 student/teacher to computer ratio 1:15 included the teachers system 1 per teacher added under staff workstations 1:10 new recommended ratio Lab Extra lab for large schools (by level) Updated standard to incorporate FCAT on-line testing needs based upon a 3 week testing period EM: (if greater than 450 students) MS: 2 +1 (if greater than 900 students) HS: (if greater than 1,350 students) Magnet Case by case examination of needs dependent upon type of Magnet program Yellow text indicates change/addition to the Basic Standard

9 Basic Computer Standards School Staff workstations Teacher workstation One per teacher Media & Circulation (3+1:300 students) (no change) Clinic (no change) Lunchroom (no change)

10 Basic Computer Standards – School Staff Workstations (continued) Other Admin (Asst Prin, office staff, counselors, etc) (no changebased upon Staffing Plan) Itinerate (social worker, ESE, Psych, SRO) (no change)

11 Basic Computer Standards - District Administrative Computers & Others District Admin One per full-time staff Accommodation for unique situations Bus Barns Maintenance

12 Basic Computer Standards- Software OSMS OfficeNetwork- based Mgmt InstructionalLab Mgmt SW Exp: Netops Open Office or equiv StudentXXX Student LabXXXXX Teacher/AdminXXX

13 Basic Computer Standards – Time for a Change? Consider change to standard? Weve been standardized on Dell and Apple for seven years Dell versus other Tier 1? Are we satisfied? Is it time for a change?

14 Basic Standard – Labs Student Labs Number of labs dependent upon type school, covered earlier Student Labs consist of: 30 workstations Intelligent Classroom Outlet Projector Printer Whiteboard or Tablet/wireless projector Document camera Audio amplification Lab Management software (exp: Netops, Vision, etc)

15 Basic Standard – Labs Media Center (EM, MS, HS) ICO Projector Printer Whiteboard or Tablet/wireless projector Document camera Audio amplification Cafetorium (EM, MS, HS) (same configuration as above) Auditorium (HS) (same configuration as above)

16 Basic Standard - Intelligent Classroom Intelligent Classroom ICO Projector Document camera Whiteboard or Tablet/wireless projector Audio amplification

17 Basic Standard – Networking Core networking Wireless Parent-School Autodialer

18 Basic Standard – ITV Center Camcorder Tripod DVD Recorder TV Line Mixer CD/cassette player combo Handheld microphone & stand Video mixer

19 Basic Standard - Printers Volume 45 ppm, duplex, networked, copy & scanning capable (MFP) Color 25 ppm, duplex, networked Classroom 25 ppm, networked or direct connect 1: Class Admin 35 ppm, duplex, networked 1:3 admin staff

20 Basic Standard - Printers Consider additional standard? Kyocera Higher purchase cost, lower toner cost Supposedly lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Downside Another printer manufacturer for support & repairs Something else you must learn to install/configure

21 Kyocera TCO

22 Tech Standard Survey

23 Basic Standard – Other Ideas?
