Our COVID-19 NYS School District Technology Planning Kit helps NYS school district IT Directors and Managers take a multi-year look at how their districts’ technology infrastructure ad IP-connected systems are prepared for the added demands from meeting COVID-19 NYSED Guidance.
Organized around district goals (like our Comprehensive Technology Plan Roadmap), the COVID Technology Planning kit includes a DIY template, a completed district sample, and detailed instructions. View the Planning Kit webpage with instructions and downloadable PDF template.
From Instructional and Communications to Network Connectivity and Devices, virtually every technology system used in most NYS school district's are affected by NYSED's District Reopening Guidance. Every district needs to be taking a proactive look at their existing technology conditions and upgrades or additions needed to meet reopening requirements and recommendations. View a comprehensive list of NYS school district tech systems that are affected by the COBID-19 pandemic and what additional functionality needs (or may need) to be considered to keep your students, staff, and schools safe.
Ensure consistency of technology systems design within your district or organization that meet best practices regardless of whether the work is self performed or accomplished using outside vendors. Our Design Standards help reduce system downtime and related service calls and costs. View a partial PDF of the Design Standards or register to see the complete 37-page version.
Ever wonder why the building technology system that was just installed doesn't operate exactly as expected? Maybe these operational issues have less to do with the new system than it does with how related existing systems were programmed for it.

Capital projects generate an avalanche of important facility data that is often used during the design and construction phases only to be inaccessible to those who may need it during the much longer manage phase. Electronic Facility Records (EFR) are to buildings what Electronic Medical Records are to people—a safe, secure way for authorized professionals to have access to important data for informed decision making. Learn more about the theory behind Electronic Facility Records at our new webpage, accessible from any page on our site via the top navigation menu. Visit the new EFR web page.
Established in 1996, we specialize in facility technology infrastructure as well as IP-based building systems such as Communications, AV and Security.
