The demand for technology in the classroom is always increasing, but budgets and resources aren’t. A school system extends beyond faculty and students to include administration, food services, transportation, and security personnel—and more. Piecemealing systems to manage different device types, ownership and operating systems quickly makes K-12 IT staff feel overwhelmed with multiple systems in its management process. With possible overlap as well as oversight, this creates inefficiencies and increases the risk of errors in data security, such as the challenge of keeping the various computing devices provisioned, patched, and updated.

IT Solutions for K-12 School Districts
Reliable and secure access to the latest and greatest digital classroom tools
K-12 IT departments need to be equipped with the right tools to empower a 7th-grade science teacher to create a digital lesson plan on photosynthesis and deliver content and quizzes just to his students’ class iPads. At the same time, a high-school math teacher needs to lock all devices into “assessment mode” to give an in-class calculus test.
IT challenges range from supporting 1:1 initiatives, protecting against ransomware, configuring and patching staff and student devices, users, apps and settings of devices used in specific classes in a school district to managing and securing multi-user mobile devices so schools can safeguard hardware by keeping it within the classroom. There is no denying that the demands of managing and securing technology can overwhelm understaffed K-12 IT departments.
