ITS has worked collaboratively with all district departments and schools to define goals, develop plans and most importantly, implement new technology in schools. We continue the process of bringing every school to the district defined technology standards.
This service provides and maintains integrated audio visual systems and equipment to select classrooms and specialty sites in the district.
This service provides and maintains personal accounts for district employees and students that allow them to access the district’s computer network.
This service provides voice telecommunications devices and connectivity to select sites and district customers.
Application Development, Web Development, Help Desk
The data processing team maintains the integrity and security of all essential district records. This includes student enrollment, attendance, grades, assessments, personnel, payroll, purchasing and financial records. They generate state and federally mandated reports and assist staff who perform data input, manipulation and extraction. They also design many of the databases and write some of the computer programs that are used throughout the district.
Support for Networks, PCs, Software, Peripherals, Classroom AV systems
The network infrastructure team supports all technology for students, teachers, and support staff including PCs, printers, class audio-visual systems, phones, wired & wireless networks. They also support the software used with this technology and assist Professional Development in training where appropriate. Our prime project in the near future is assisting in implementing the new Skyward Student, Business, HR, Transportation and Food Service systems.
District Student Records houses student records of High School graduates and those who have withdrawn from the St. Lucie County Public School District.
What is E-Rate?
E-Rate is the commonly used name for the Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission. The program provides discounts to assist most schools and libraries in the United States and U.S. territories in obtaining affordable telecommunications and Internet access. Geared to the level of poverty and the urban/rural status of the population served, discounts range from 20 to 90 percent of the costs of eligible services.
SLPS’s E-Rate IT Program Manager is responsible for implementing the district’s E-Rate compliance program. This includes developing a training program for all E-Rate employees, contractors, and consultants and establishing internal controls that provide management oversight, reviews of E-Rate program activities, and a competitive bidding process for E-Rate goods and services.
