A collaboration in the cloud: Advancing K-12 technology innovation

We believe we make a strong case for thinking outside of the traditional IT program box when it comes to delivering IT services and solutions to your schools

cloud-computing-innovationToday’s reality of budgetary shortfalls and limited resources make it challenging for K-12 districts around the country to effectively address the technology needs of schools, students and teachers they serve.

This common challenge is what brought our two information technology centers, Northwest Ohio Computer Association (NWOCA) and Tri-Rivers Educational Computer Association (TRECA), together.

NWOCA and TRECA are state-chartered not-for-profit organizations which provide computer and technical services to Ohio county agencies. We realized that if we collaborated on a cloud-based storage solution for our customers – Ohio K-12 schools and school districts – we would be able to deliver a much richer set of services far beyond what we would have been able to offer on our own.

Our collaboration is a practice that signals a groundswell in the way school districts will approach technology in today’s hyper-connected society.

Collaboration in the Cloud

When a changeover in the student information systems for the school districts which both technology centers support required a move to a new web-based student information system, it became obvious that a significant infrastructure upgrade would be necessary.
