Make a Plan with the Help of School Network Experts
The first step in upgrading a K–12 district’s network is determining the starting point. Working with a partner like CDW Education can help an IT team better plan its wireless journey.
Because K–12 IT professionals frequently wear many hats, they don’t always have the time or insights to build a plan for their network upgrades. Working with a partner can ensure students and staff stay connected, leaving IT leaders free to answer other needs.

CDW’s solution architects can assess a school’s infrastructure and help it create a plan for immediate and future upgrades. With the modern state of innovation, it’s almost impossible to implement a one-and-done networking solution that will carry a district through the next decade.
Instead, schools should consider network upgrades that are scalable and flexible. Also, consider a phased approach that allows for addressing the most urgent needs first. Then plan for continued updates in coming years, as funding and budgets allow. CDW Education, with its deep bench of technology partners, can provide the solutions schools need as the digital world continues to evolve. CDW’s experts can also help IT leaders plan ongoing upgrades around funding cycles, such as E-rate.
