Technology upgrades

A lot happened during the summer

This summer IT and facilities staffers installed a completely new wireless network that provides improved speed and security. If you bring your own computer or handheld device to campus, just attach to the insecure network named “openwireless” for Internet access. We also installed new antivirus and network access systems, to keep unknown, infected, and out-of-date computers from accessing central network resources.

We provided a series of training classes for teachers and staff members, from required Windows 7 and Office 2010 trainings to elective offerings such as email strategies, Mac essentials, and social networking.

We made major upgrades to workstation software. We now run Windows 7 and MacOS 10.6 “Snow Leopard” on nearly all school computers. Windows and Mac users now use Office 2010 and Adobe Creative Suite 5 widely.

A terrific team of alumni and students helped us this summer: Kaitlyn Linehan '06, Max Baron '07, Eric Montague '08, Ryan Takahashi '09, Eli Skeggs '13, and two newcomers, Emily Eisert and Natalie Dukes.

The website offers a wealth of information and the latest school news. Did you know that the website receives 8,000 page views each day? Tabs on the right-hand side of the home page provide instant access to news headlines, calendar dates, and lunch menus. Look under Athletics for team pages, new this year. Also visit Catlin Gabel on Facebook and Twitter!
