Preparing for the new school year with Imagine School at Palmer Ranch
At the beginning of the second school year Wright Computing LLC made sure all of the Imagine School at Palmer Ranch had a fully functioning communications infrastructure. The top floor of Imagine School at Palmer Ranch was not used in the first year, so in preparation for the second year we set up all the physical cable connectivity to the classrooms including the patch leads for both voice and data to allow each room to have a phone, a teacher’s laptop, 3 or 4 terminal N-computing student stations and a printer. Once the physical connections were all in place then we did all the software configuration of the new equipment including building the N-computing student stations, building 10 new laptops for the teachers, adding all the equipment to the server, and setting up of all the new teacher and student accounts. To keep up with more modern technology Wright Computing researched, purchased and installed a new Meraki wireless network. This has improved the redundancy of the network and enables faculty to move freely around the classroom. We work closely with the on site tech support teacher and often give help and suggestions on how to fix problems, going on campus to help fix more serious problems to keep Imagine School at Palmer Ranch operating as smoothly as possible.
