Mrs. Lisa Wiegmann and Mr. Dirk Garrett presented a technology report of the prior year.  Many purchases were made throughout 2010-11.  Mrs. Ringwald received a grant to help her purchase a smartboard for her room.  We will have to purchase new software (Ghost), which will make a copy of a computer and transfers that copy to a new computer in 10 minutes.  Mrs. Wiegmann’s room received 25 new computers that are designed to handle Dreamweaver and drafting software for Mr. Schonhoff’s class.  They have a 3 year warranty.   Mrs. Ringwald’s room also received 25 computers with 4 GB memory each.  Her classes don’t need that much memory.  They also have a 3 year warranty.  All new computers are running Windows 7 Professional.  Mr. Harre’s classroom will receive 6 computers which is partially paid for via a grant.  Projectors in 2E and 3E that were 9 years old were replaced.  We did not discard the old ones and will use them for backups.  A new server was purchased.  All staff and students will have user names and passwords.  This will allow us to better track a student or teachers’ files.   Students will not have to have a flash drive and will have their own folder.  We purchased Microsoft Office Professional 2010.  50 licenses were purchased by Kaskaskia College since they use our classrooms for college courses.  An additional 50 licenses were purchased by Software Assurance.  We had to purchase 129 licenses and 8 MAC licenses.  CTE funds purchased 2 Smart Slates and a Smart Response System.  Mrs. Wiegmann, Mr. Garrett and Becky Boeschen will be providing some technology training on August 17 to all staff members.
