Benefits of Using ToSolution for K-12 Education IT Support
- Infrastructure Stability – As more technology permeates the classroom, it is becoming more important to avoid downtime. Teaching, board meetings, staff training, school work, and projects are always in motion, and being offline means lost time and interruptions to lesson plans and meetings. Network, wireless, and server stability is a must-have. As your K-8 technology partner, ToSolution provides solutions that resist outages, yet can be cost-effectively engineered. In many cases, dollars saved through volume and educational discounts can go a long way toward engineering a solution that runs robust and redundant hardware and software and can get you more out of your technology budget.
- Mobility and Tablet Computing – As the educational landscape continues to shift, more and more mobile devices including Apple iPad and Google Chromebooks are being used to run apps for education including student assessments, cognitive testing, and progress testing. In addition, laptops, netbooks, and tablets are often utilized by students to complete homework, projects, and other coursework. More and more schools are adopting “open lounge” or “student center” concepts. We have experience and solutions like our ProMobile technology that can help facilitate solutions to these challenges, make deployment and monitoring easier, and keep the devices and the students using them secure.
- Student and Faculty Security – Providing a safe and secure environment for students and faculty isn’t just a “nice to have”, it is paramount in today’s technology landscape. ToSolution provides robust, CIPA-compliant solutions designed to keep students and faculty secure. As part of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) of 2000, ToSolution implements and certifies equipment that complies with these requirements, and that will allow your school to remain compliant. We have experience working with industry-standard student check-in and check-out suites, particularly important for keeping K4-K5 environments secure.
- Technology Support – Your faculty and students want support when they need it. You don’t have time or energy to spend on poor, lackluster, and unresponsive support. Your school’s technology can only be as good as the team supporting it. We have experience with many applications and testing programs in the K-8 education space including SBAC and Cogat testing. Most important is to have a partner on your side who knows how to implement the solution, can “speak geek” to your software vendors, but avoids finger-pointing at all costs and supports your school the way you need it. We are your first and only call in most cases. It’s reassurance for your entire school.
