Protecting and managing a fleet of several hundred thousand computers is no easy task, but Los Angeles Unified School District is well-prepared with a fleet of leading-edge Chromebooks equipped with GoGuardian.
Hermosa Beach, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) plans to supply each of its 661,000 students a device, making it a pioneer of one-to-one student computer programs. It is the second largest school district in the nation, and is also one of the first to aggressively target a one-to-one program in all of its schools.
Such an ambitious goal in a large and diverse school district presents a unique set of challenges. Hardware and software must work across regions, grade levels, and campuses. Achieving and maintaining CIPA compliance while monitoring, managing, and keeping track of such a massive fleet of educational computers has never been done before, which led many to question the viability of LAUSD’s ambitious goal.
After running experimental trials across grade levels and campuses, Chromebooks emerged as one of the favored solutions for achieving its aggressive goals for rollout and device capabilities. While price and performance considerations earned Chromebooks a significant spot in the hardware selection, many questions remained on the software side. Maximizing device efficiency, protecting students, and managing assets are all considerations that require specialized software solutions.
LAUSD was undeterred by these challenges, which has positioned them as pioneers in the large-scale ed-tech space. GoGuardian was a natural fit for LAUSD’s goals, as their software has led the educational Chromebook sector since its inception. The device tracking and recovery capabilities built into its software are unrivaled on the computer fleet management marketplace, which mean that Chromebooks equipped with GoGuardian are the safest assets in LAUSD’s impressive fleet.
As their device rollout intensifies in 2015 and beyond, LAUSD and its IT administrators will continue to benefit from GoGuardian’s suite of solutions, which allow for peace of mind in CIPA compliance, device tracking, and grade-level-specific filtering capabilities. Protecting and managing a fleet of several hundred thousand computers is no easy task, but Los Angeles Unified School District is well-prepared with a fleet of leading-edge Chromebooks equipped with GoGuardian.
