    Summer 2024 Educational Technology Improvement Update

    The classroom teaching station computer installation is Phase 1 of the Bond 2020 Tech Classroom modernization project and is currently underway in the Bond 2020 School Group Fifteen. Phase 1 has completed 70 schools since the project began in 2021. Phase 1 project includes a new Chrome desktop computer and new 22 inch monitor in each classroom. School Group Fifteen includes Ockley Green, James John, Woodlawn, Woodmere, and Kelly.

    The Phase 2 design and installation work is also underway for the Bond 2020 Educational Technology Improvement Project’s School Group 1-5. School Group 5 includes West Sylvan, Arleta, Mt. Tabor, Beaumont, Rose City Park, Harrison Park. In this school group there are 3,656 total students with 49% of the students coming from historically underserved communities, the average building age being 86 years old. Work needed for all schools in this phase include Wifi upgrade, fiber backbone, and classroom tech upgrades.  

    Phase 2 of the Classroom technology improvements will include a wall phone for the teachers by the classroom door, a laser projector mounted to the wall, and teacher audio amplification system and microphones so everyone can hear the teacher in the room. A new gym intercom call box will be installed in each school’s gym which will be included in the school’s emergency communications plan and will enable the gym to call the front office or 911. In addition it enables any office in the school to call the gym intercom call box directly. Wi-Fi will be installed in each classroom and fiber network improvements will increase Wi-Fi speeds for faster online connectivity throughout the school. Gyms that have existing tech carts will be receiving a table-top style laser projector to replace the existing projectors, computer and monitor that rolled into the gym and are used for daily health and gym classes.
