Weber District Technical Services Department is responsible for all computer related issues. The district is a large and diverse community of approximately 30000 students and 4000 staff. There are about 8000 computing devices for which the department has responsibility. Maintaining this base of hardware is an extensive task. The support and functionality of these systems are paramount as everything from grading and daily attendance, instruction, school lunch, libraries, and all business practices are dependent on technology. As technology becomes an increasingly important component of the educational process, it is critical that these systems are reliable and efficient.
The safety of our students is of primary importance. While many systems and protections are in place for this purpose, we ask that parents, staff and other responsible adults do all they can to support us in this effort to keep children safe online.
Some of the areas for which we have responsibility are:
- Hardware and software implementations
- District web presence
- Online instruction
- Operation and management of the Student system
- Operation and management of financial and personnel systems
- All internet connectivity including wireless
- Call center and helpdesk
