Technology is at the intersection of all departments in the Ridgefield Public Schools. It involves the infrastructure of the district’s buildings (e.g., phones, Internet, facilities operations, and security), software (e.g., educational instruction), professional technical services (e.g., lunch payment system), and physical equipment (e.g., computers). This column will focus on the interplay of technology and facilities operations.
We are committed to making sure our facilities are maintained in a way that supports normal school operations without fear of system failure causing school disruption or closure. Increasingly, the core infrastructure of the district (e.g., mechanicals, heating and cooling systems, security systems, instructional systems) is supported by network infrastructure.
