Changing Education through Technology Solutions

Those in education have understood for some time that it is absolutely vital to protect our students. Having the tools and resources in place to protect your facilities, faculty, and student population from potential catastrophes is necessary. Alerting students when manmade or natural events occur – such as active shooter situations and hazardous weather conditions – requires comprehensive solutions such as intelligent surveillance and mass notification systems.

But your educational institution likely requires an even greater set of solutions. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit in 2020, many public and private school districts across the country realized they were years behind in implementing the networking solutions that would make distance and elearning a reality. MCA was glad to help schools across the country utilize grants and other forms of funding to deliver internet connectivity to students in need district-wide.

IT Directors in the education sector have a lot to consider in terms of technology solutions. What is the right communication solution for campus security guards? How can we better track and monitor our school buses and transportation vehicles?  What solutions will keep my students safest?

There are a near endless number of questions – the experts at MCA are here to help provide you with answers.
