Project Overview

In January 2011, a new pedestrian gate was installed which features remote access that allows school staff to control access to the campus from the main office.  The system includes a two-way voice communication, keypad to access the school and a video camera that enables staff to recognize visitors at the gate. 

The system has no archival capability and the cameras are strictly used for recognition and access.  The purpose of the gate is to optimize access control and will be used when the double gate is not being monitored in the courtyard.


Two existing classrooms were upgraded to the district’s new technology standards.  The standard includes a projector and screen, document camera, DVD player, and a sound system with a wireless microphone.  The school has been upgraded to 1Gpbs networking and campus-wide Wifi.  The telephone systems were replaced with a district-wide IP telephone system (VoIP).  One teacher and eight student laptops were provided.  Wireless access points were installed throughout the campus and the phone system was replaced with a new IP telephone system. The campus network infrastructure was upgraded to one-gigabit bandwidth to support the wireless access and telephone upgrades.  The technology upgrades were completed in 2010.
