Savoy ISD makes major technological gains
Savoy ISD has crossed a technological goal by surpassing a 1 to 1 device ratio. This began two years ago when the entire 20 year old computer infrastructure was replaced. This provided the computer drops and wiring to handle the new devices. Since then, over 200 devices have been purchased and even more are ordered. Elementary has primarily added ipads while high school has primarily added chrome books. Security cameras and controlled access entrances have been added. Also, the wi-fi has been enhanced and the district now has fiber optic connections between the campuses and the old radio connection is now a back-up. Approximately 25% of the costs of these upgrades were provided by grants.
