Technology Report

S.A.P. Daily Tasks

Since January 15, we closed 681 routine notifications. Also, major requests such as computer lab upgrades in St. Mike’s Jr. High and upgrades of 29 computers between John Bernard Crock and St. Mary’s Schools.

We also transferred all schools to a local Net Sweeper Server. This server is stored at the Technology Department. This is a filter content server which gives us the capability to filter internet sites globally within our board.

We configured firewalls to block peer to peer traffic such as Kazaa, Limewire and Aires. This software was filling server storage, as well as causing major viruses in some schools. These viruses can be a possible security breach.

Computers for Schools

Since January 15, the Technology Department and Computers for Schools installed over 62 computers and 14 network laser printers in our School Board. We installed and delivered 42 computers, 56 monitors, one printer in the community as charitable donations.

P-12 Refresh

During the month of January, we installed, configured and delivered:

4 Digital Still Cameras

3 Laptops

6 Emac Computers

3 Printers

2 Scanners

12 Computer Systems – these computers are reflected in the 62 computers for schools
