The Technology Department partnered with the Curriculum Office to develop a framework in Google Drive for the new Course of Study documents initiated this school year. The ultimate goal is to have documented processes and procedures for each course taught K-12 at the unit level.
The team has worked actively in the past ten months to plan out a network infrastructure improvement project for the entire Kenston Campus. With levy funding now available, the project will become a reality in the summer of 2015, with all new wiring and hardware throughout campus, providing a new level and quality of service to our users, both internal and external.

The Technology Department collaborated with a commercial recycler, Green Wave Computer Recycling out of Indiana, to provide a community-wide recycling and drop-off day in April 2015, where community members could recycle their electronic scrap such as TVs, monitors, PCs, keyboards, cell phones, and many other appliances.
The WordPress server was migrated successfully in August of 2014 to a commercial host in order to provide the next level of service to our end users and community users as website visitors.
