Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation & Five Star Engineering Support

Challenge

Mt. Vernon Community Schools needed assistance managing their 1:1 device program, which consists of 4,200 Chromebooks. This included maintaining the network by keeping systems up-to-date and completing repairs when needed.

Extra support from network engineers was vital to maintain the multiple systems in place (wireless, virtual servers, switches, backups, etc.).

Solution

Five Star engineers shared their expertise and provided extra support for Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation’s technology department. Because of this, technology-related interruptions were minimized for staff and students.

Five Star listened to the needs of Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation. The developed current and future technology plans that fit the unique needs of the district.
