Dell Announces a Continued Support for K-12 schools
ROUND ROCK, TX: Dell announced its continued support for K-12 educational institutions to better prepare for the new school year with successful “Back to School” IT strategies.
According to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, 4.2 million students completed the Field Test last June, representing the largest online assessment in our nation’s history. During the 2014-2015 school year, this dry run of the Common Core State Standards will become a reality for school districts and IT leaders across 43 states. For that reason, preparing for Common Core will require IT strategies for identifying current technology infrastructures and determining what’s needed to support next-gen assessments.
To reduce the complications of systems management in education environments, hundreds of thousands of computers are managed by K-12 schools using Dell KACE Systems Management Appliances.
“Dell KACE endpoint management solutions ensure smoother, more cost-effective transitions to the latest learning programs, testing methodologies and mobile devices, while easing support for new or upgraded Windows, Mac and Linux environments,” says Bill Odell, vice president of marketing for Endpoint Systems Management at Dell Software. “That’s why a growing list of K-12 schools use KACE appliances and Desktop Authority to improve system uptime and security, lower IT overhead costs and produce better educational outcomes.”
