Each device in a teacher’s hands or delivered to a student or family has the potential to either facilitate learning or become a fail point.
The school’s device and technical inventory is an important asset. Effective device management in the context of a school requires managing a complex checklist of readiness for deployment for each new school year, including provisioning devices and maintaining their software and tracking their distribution and return. A partner that handles this efficiently, end to end, can ensure schools focus on delivery of instruction, not warehousing devices.
At a time when schools necessarily extend their mission beyond their walls, access to technology, devices, and connectivity at home is still a barrier.
Schools and districts across the U.S. are increasingly targets for ransomware and cyberattacks. When those succeed, there are costly shutdowns. It’s not only the financial cost at work, but the ultimate cost to students who miss important learning time and, potentially, key milestones in their advancement as learners. As with device management, managing security necessarily requires an end-to-end strategy. Where there’s a gap, there’s a vulnerability, and the most vulnerable are at risk. CTS managed a school’s security with the knowledge that schools themselves are critical infrastructure.
Full capability, laser-focused on your school’s specific objective:
Schools need the ability to flex, expand, plan, implement and support technology end-to-end—even if the school’s initial needs are modest. But a generic approach is unsuitable for a learning environment. Too often, managed IT services partners do not grasp the fundamentals of a school’s mission, the specific requirements of its instructional paradigm, or the extent of challenges faced by its learner population. Every school shares something in common, and types of schools from Law Schools to Community Colleges to Charter or Montessori have a specific focus inherent to their model. But one size never fits all. A deeper understanding of each is required, on top of a solid grasp of the range of technical opportunities and requirements appropriate to everything from school administration to classroom instruction and learning rubrics. CTS offers the entire array of technical services focused entirely on education. These include:
