Inside Community High School District 99’s Untethering

  • A strategic planning initiative among stakeholders about technology improvements led Community High School District 99 officials to begin a network upgrade and wireless implementation in 2011.
  • IT staff relied on CDW•G’s Advanced Technology Services team for help planning and implementing an infrastructure that would make a tablet rollout to teachers possible.
  • The district deployed an all-Cisco infrastructure in summer 2011 and rolled out Lenovo ThinkPad X220 tablets to the teachers for classroom use this fall.

Participants: Rod Russeau and Greg Belina, of Community High School District 99; South High School’s Ed Schwartz; North High School’s Gwen Henderson and Lisa Lichtman
