The technology department at Cabool Schools has had a busy year, with one of its latest projects being a complete upgrade of the district’s phone system. Department director Randon Brown and his assistant, Nathan Mistler, have also been busy running new cable for the high school server room in “B” building, completing wiring for the new art and music classrooms, and getting the district’s student information system ready for summer school and the new school year, in addition keeping all computers and other devices running.

In a report last week, Brown summarized work done by the technology department so far during the 2015-16 school year:

•The department has closed over 1,500 work orders.

•The entire IT server infrastructure has been rebuilt to accommodate future growth.

•Over 240 computers were installed or replaced for staff and students.

•The department has maintained the district’s 17 on-site servers, which keep the district’s operations running on a day-to-day basis.

•Almost 100 new phones were installed for teachers and staff.

•Over 5,000 feet of wiring has been installed.

•Four Promethean boards were installed in classrooms.

•Over 15 security cameras were added or replaced.

•Nine printers were added or replaced.

•And, as part of its monitoring system, the department reports that the most-visited website through the school’s system was google.com, with that site being searched 4,330,559 times.
