If you are a parent, teacher or student you may feel like you have no idea what to expect when school starts back in a few weeks; will class be in person, will it be remote, or will it be some hybrid learning model? While some school districts are still trying to finalize their plans, others have already been able to develop their plan and move forward with implementation.
Patterson Unified School District in California has decided to embrace a hybrid learning option which will allow their students and teachers to adjust quickly if there is a spike in COVID-19 cases in their district and the need for 100% remote learning is necessary. To provide reliable internet access to all students and teachers they have chosen to implement the Nitro technology solution. Thankfully, they were able to utilize CARES Act funds to pay for the new system. “Many of our students are without regular and reliable internet access, which is a non-starter for online learning,” said Nicholas De Pauw, director of technology, Patterson Unified School District. “Nitro is a turnkey solution that will allow us to get up and running with data-rich online instruction, connecting our educators and students when onsite learning isn’t possible. Private broadband from Motorola Solutions offers the flexibility and scalability to support additional applications down the road.”
Why Choose Nitro:
- Secure and reliable broadband network
- Supports online classes, streaming video and other data-rich programming
- Qualified technology solution for CARES fund coverage
- Affordable, private LTE solution
- Can integrate directly into a school district’s network
- Full end-to end encryption to keep sensitive data safe and secure
