District-Wide Unified Communication System
This large project began in the summer of 2015 and affects every building in the District. The new system greatly improves communication and safety with a built-in emergency notification application.
The application notifies key personnel of any security or safety concerns with the touch of a button. Color-coded alerts can be sent to individuals or an entire building, both over the intercom and through pop-up alerts on workstations. If a 911 call is made from a particular classroom, emergency responders are automatically able to see where the call has been placed.
In addition, this project includes adding infrastructure to support outlets and data racks in all classrooms, including portables.
Final Cost: $5,282,000
Funding: 2014 Bond
Schedule: 03/2014 - 09/2017
"We wanted a system that provided additional security features that tied to our paging system, as well as provide first responders with more specific information as to where an incident may be occurring."- former Administrator for Technology Services, Jordan Beveridge
