Technology Update: Innovative Educators, Bandwidth, and more! (4/6/16)

Just a couple of quick updates for this week:

Innovative Educator – Cohort 2
Applications are open for the second cohort of the Innovative Educator program. Please consider attending the last information meeting tomorrow, April 7, from 3-4 pm in the Computer Lab at the district office if you are thinking about applying with a partner and need more information. No sign up needed. The application is available until Sunday, April 17 at 8 pm and can be found at

Bandwidth Upgrade
Early this morning, Yolo County Office of Education (YCOE) added an additional 1 GB Internet circuit for outgoing bandwidth to school districts. This is greater than what we’ve had before (100MB which is 1/10th of 1GB) but less than the dedicated bandwidth that we hope to have when they upgrade to 10GB. This means that rather than servicing all of the districts in Yolo county on 1GB, they are now able to provide 2GBs of Internet bandwidth. We have seen a noted increase in traffic efficiency based upon this addition at YCOE. Kuddos to YCOE for problem solving on how to best support our students in Yolo county!
