Three highly skilled technicians purchase, install, and maintain networking equipment for the ESD, its four school districts, and a variety of non-profit governmental agencies.

The ESD Tech Center continually strives to leverage technology to serve regional districts while improving efficiency. Strategies to accomplish this goal include:

  • Charging as little as possible or not at all for services to districts

  • Economize on Open Source technology when possible

  • Centralize services to increase quality & decrease cost

  • Consolidate purchasing for increased savings

  • Provide solutions and support that enable higher quality services

  • Keep abreast of the latest innovations

The department also continues to develop and support a local Wide Area Network for the ESD, component school districts and other “non-private” organizations. This network consists of leased fiber optic & licensed microwave links with a bandwidth ranging from 100 to 1000 Mbps.
