Despite all of the current hurdles to being a school district facility director, there’s a new generation of leaders that are stepping up and thriving; finding creative solutions to today’s problems and leading teams across their district’s buildings at a point in time when building maintenance is under a microscope in every community.
These facility professionals are what we call "Next Generation Facility Managers" (NGFMs) and this paper examines the traits, tools, and strategies that these leaders are using to push school facility management into the future.
Discover the skills it takes to be a facility leader for the future in this eBook from our sister company MasterLibrary Software. Get practical advice, tips and insights from their panel of experts.
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.
Has your school district (or other organization) ever installed a new IP-connected technology system after a significant investment in money, staff, and time only to experience operational issues with system devices or components after deployment?
Intermittent operating errors in newly installed security cameras, interactive whiteboards, Wireless Access Points (WAPs), and other devices that connect to your district’s physical network may have nothing to do with the devices themselves. Instead, the real culprit may well be the poor conditions of your current technology infrastructure including cables, pathways, and spaces.
