Technology at a glance

 

The Union R-XI administration and technology committee place a strong emphasis on providing the tools necessary for students to excel in a learning environment.  Our technology department currently supports over 3000 desktop, laptop, and tablet computing devices on a daily basis in order to meet the needs of our staff and students.  All of our technology staff members are certified fiber optic technicians and are working rigorously to deploy fiber across all district campuses capable of 10Gbps+ transmission rates.

 

Our department takes pride in having 100% wireless coverage across district classrooms with the capability to support a wireless device in the hands of every enrolled student.  The technology staff works closely with the administration team and currently support several new technologies in the classroom including iPads, Chromebooks  for Education with Google Apps, laptops, interactive response systems, and the many facets of online learning and assessments.

 

The safety of our students and staff is a top priority at Union R-XI and as such, the technology department is currently implementing electronic access control as part of a bond issue approved by voters in April 2013.  In addition to providing staff members with electronic key cards for building entry, all doors will be continuously monitored to maintain a safe environment on all district campuses.
