High School Keeps Student Body Connected Through the Use of Sharp Displays

High School Keeps Student Body Connected Through the Use of Sharp Displays

Business Environment Challenges
After nearly 18 years of planning, setbacks and construction, a Massachusetts-based regional high school finally opened its doors for the academic year. Designed to meet the needs of a 21st-century workspace, it features “The Learning Commons,” a student-run technology support desk with charging stations for mobile devices, located within an open space near the school’s south and main entrances. 

Most of the high school reflects an open, collegiate campus style. Although the layout is modern, it created communications challenges. Since students were always on the move from class to class, there was no reliable way for faculty and staff to easily share pertinent information. With a population of more than 1,200 students, the school turned to technology to help keep pupils tethered, allowing them to stay in touch with events and news going on around campus, without losing their mobility.

Understanding the critical role of technology in this new campus and the significant investment made in its construction, the school’s superintendent felt the need to secure the right technology solutions for the school’s communication needs.
