We Take an Instruction First Approach
Document Your Vision

Involve Your Facility Goals
We dig into what areas most concern you about your new space where a child may go off the radar. We translate that into a map of technological applications.
Map Technology to Your Curriculum
From online testing and data to digital lesson materials... Instead of a one size fits all template for all schools, we uncover how do you intend for technology as part of your lesson planning.
Cost Control & Leveraging Funding
You want maximum use for the budget you indicate. We'll often recommend systems that are inexpensive to launch and expandable as needed, to make optimal use of E-rate and other funding for opening day and the future.
A Shining Example of a Brand New Shiny School
MS: Twelve classrooms. Twelve projectors. Sixteen points of wireless access. Fifty-two data outlets...

Internet -- speed, reliability, security
Value can also be important. Redundancy is key, CTS always ensures schools have continual monitoring for outages and a properly configured backup ISP. And we use state of the art heat-mapping to ensure every inch of a building has proper signal/wifi access.
CTS works with severals tiers of trusted and vetted partners to provide max reliability and scalability. We configure firewalls with K-12 clients in mind, including Content Filtering for CIPA compliance.
We utilize K-12 centric setup and implementation standards: ensuring standards a school applies to all devices cannot be bypassed by a student intentionally or accidentally and all learners have a consistent experience.
