K-12 technology plays a larger role year after year as educators seek to improve teaching and learning by utilizing computing devices and online resources. Some states require mandatory on-line testing therefore, it’s imperative for students to have appropriate devices and internet access.
According to this Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) report, the top 5 hurdles for schools to address in 2020 include scaling and sustaining innovation, data privacy and ownership, evolution of teaching and learning, pedagogy vs. technology gap, and digital equity. In order to overcome these challenges, it is necessary to make sure your IT infrastructure is operational. This frees up time for educators to support student needs in place of working on technology issues.
JEM can assist with K-12 technology needs within such spaces as data centers and network closets throughout the district. We can also assist with district building management (emergency lighting, point of sale e.g. cafeteria). Let’s not forget about classrooms, computer labs and security in any IT areas.
Some of our past performance projects include server room IT infrastructure enhancements. We have also standardized telecommunication closets district wide. For example we have standardized racks, power (UPS and PDUs) and environmental monitoring.
