TECHNOLOGY UPDATE
Kevin Plambeck, Career and Technology Director, thanked the Board Members for having a special meeting specifically for technology. He explained the timeline to upgrade the network, storage, and servers, relative to the district’s deadline for on-line student assessments, which begins March 9th. It was critical to order the necessary equipment, as soon as possible, with the approval of the Board. A back-up generator also needs to be purchased to ensure an uninterruptable supply of voltage during a power-outage. Mr. Plambeck stated that current revenue from the School Facilities and Technology Levy and “carry-over” funds from last year would pay for the expenses.

Board members commended Mr. Plambeck for meeting the needs of students.
