Fiber Optic Infrastructure, Network and Computing Device Access

Paulding County School District’s state-of-the-art fiber optic network infrastructure delivers high data transfer speeds, utilizes Voice-Over -Internet-Protocol (VOIP) telephony, and provides assurance of future technology expansion. Using over 100 physical and virtual servers, the network connects each classroom and office in the district. With over 11,000 networked computing devices, we provide an approximate 2.5 computer to student ratio. Computing devices (workstations, laptops, or tablets) are accessible in classrooms, labs and media centers.

 

Audio-visual and Interactive Devices

The majority of the District’s classrooms are equipped with interactive devices that include projection systems, document cameras and interactive boards/peripherals to provide collaborative and interactive instruction and engagement in the classroom.

 

Technology Support

The Technology Department of PCSD strives to provide the best service to our customers through expedited onsite support and appropriate collaboration and training with Instructional Technology and Professional Learning resources. A web help ticketing system prioritizes and routes requests for end users for quick response as well as a data resource to identify areas for improvement and training.
