Everything is going well

We are already a quarter of the way done with the school year. Students started their second quarter of classes last week Tuesday, the 6th. Time goes faster and faster every day.

Everything has been going great in terms of the network and computer system here at Paynesville Schools. With the hard work performed over the summer, staff and students were able to come back and start using the network and computer systems without many hiccups as they returned to classes. This was a big goal of mine - to make sure everything was updated, maintained and ready to go for the school year by the end of the summer. It is great to see hard work pay off.

I am consistently looking for things to improve for our network here. This is usually not an issue as technology changes day by day. There is always room for improvement in the network to make sure that it can handle what is thrown at it. One thing that always changes no matter what is network security. That is something that constantly needs to be monitored and taken care of to make sure that the network can perform at 100%. As we head into the winter months, I will continue making our network as secure as it can be.

Wireless (Wi-Fi) systems also change constantly as well to make themselves faster and more reliable. We replaced our entire wireless system February of 2017 district-wide. This provided more reliable Wi-Fi coverage. There is now a new generation of Wi-Fi available. Plans will be made to make sure that we keep our Wi-Fi up to date along with the rest of our network to ensure we are providing the best experience possible to staff and students.
