 WiFiDistrict Network & Wireless Service

The Santa Rita Union School District's Internet network was originally designed and implemented in 2000. Since that time, there have been numerous changes and upgrades made, as a result of e-rate funding or bond, providing sites with the latest networking technology. Broadband access is the District standard, and our bandwidth at all schools: 4 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, MOT building, district offices, and a preschool is 1 Gigabyte, and currently supports a myriad of 5,000 devices via 220 WiFi Access Points, including computers, laptops, Chromebooks, tables and IoT devices. In July, we are upgrading our internet bandwidth to 2 Gigabytes across the district.  We are planning for future dramatic growth in both web based and digital content. We have deployed a Caching Server to assist with fast content delivery across the network.   The needs of the curriculum and instruction drives our network upgrades.  It is essential our learning resources are available anywhere and anytime.

Aeries
  Student Information System  
The Santa Rita Union School District will use the Aeries Student Information System (SIS) beginning the 2017-2018 school year. It provides our teachers, administrators, parents, and students controlled access to student information via a Web browser interface and mobile app access.

Computer
 1 to 1 Device Initiative District wide

 We are rolling into our 4th year of a very successful 1 to 1 device initiative using Google's G-Suite Tools for Education on Chromebooks from TK through 8th grade.  Our 6th-8th grade students get 24/7 access to a Chromebook during the school year.  At the TK-5th grade level, we utilize Chromebook carts in every classroom for student use.  We HP and Asus Chromebooks both touchscreen (K-2) and non-touch (3-5) in the classroom.  

 

GSuite  

Google Apps for Education (Google G Suite) 

Our district, Google Education Group Steinbeck Country, and California State University, Monterey Bay has offered a Google Certified Educator Level 1 class every semester for educators in our district and many of our neighboring districts. The course is taught by our District Certified Google Trainer and technology coordinator.  The district has utilized the Google G Suite as our primary office suite in the classroom since 2013.

Additionally, we provide support for planning, assessment, and data collection of innovative projects and staff professional development.

The Santa Rita Union School District's Educational and Information Technology Department provides computer system repairs both on site as well as in the district office.  Through the online Mojo Help Desk, all district staff members can submit requests for service. Our technicians will often resolve issues at the school site during the same or next business day the request has been placed where possible. Additionally, district staff can drop off devices with their library media techs for repair (in most cases).   We are a self-maintainer shop and are certified to provide repair of Dell, HP, and Asus computers and Chromebooks.
