Ripon High SchoolRipon High is considered the site with the lowest amount of technology in the district. Averageage of a teacher's laptop or desktop is 5-7 years. The number of overhead projectors rivals that of digital projectors. The projectors out there range from 5-12 years of age. These older projectorsalso cause issues with our attendance software, in that they require the displays to be set at aresolution that is not optimal and cannot be changed without administrative rights. An exampleof this is in Leedys room, her projector is the oldest in use. It requires a resolution of 640x480,one that the computer does not support natively. Our Aeries requires 1280x720. She cannot enter grades on this computer because the options needed to not fit on the screen.Student computers besides units in the lab are non existent. Now it is understandable that someclasses might not have student computers such as a math class or a PE class. There should be atleast 2-4 computers in say an English or History class.The most heavily used and underpowered piece of technology on the campus are the computer labs. The G7 computer lab is at the bottom of the list with the oldest computers in use oncampus. These computers at Gateway Computers purchased July 16th, 2001. On average, wehave lost about 3-4 computers a semester. The lab has turned into a game of whack-a-mole iskeeping up on the issues that crop up with these older machines. The units that have failed have been replaced by either computers brought over from other sites or new replacements have been purchased 5 at a time. It is a patchwork lab.The second lab in age is the Library lab. It was originally from the Ag lab and was purchased inOctober of 2002. This lab is running as well as it can. It is used as a class lab and only has about20 computers where students have to either pair up or switch out with other students to get their work done. This is the only lab on campus where a teacher can reserve or request time in therefor their students.The third lab in age is the B4 lab, this is the keyboarding and web design lab. These computerswere purchased in August of 2007. This is the only full lab that runs without issue and onlyneeds small software updates and fixes.. It is aging but has 2-3 more years on it.The last lab is the Ag Lab and it is the newest lab. It was purchased in April of 2010. As with theB4 lab this lab is also runs without issue and only needs minor software fixes and updatesthroughout the year. This lab, if not replaced has another 3-5 years on it.WestonIn the past 2 years, Weston teachers received new teacher laptops to replace the aging labcomputers that were distributed to the teachers from the 2005 lab. These computers were purchased in 2010 by the PFC. All teachers received a new computer from this set.Weston also purchased a new computer lab using Title I funds and distributed the old lab againto the classrooms. The new lab was purchased in 2011 and is fully up to date.
