West Aurora School District 129

The school district had an aging communications system serving 1,800 employees across 20 older buildings, with each building housing on-site equipment and the dedicated IT staff who supported it. They needed modern, flexible technology that would save them money in the long-run.

“We don’t have data center space or staff, and moving to the cloud made the most sense," said Director of Technology Don Ringelestein. "Most school districts are operating out of buildings that weren’t designed to be data centers. The less you need to put in that room, the better.”

    Goals
    • Deploy an off-site solution due to building constraints 
    • Free up IT staff and reduce requirement for IT personnel in every building 
    • Get simple-to-use features that require minimal training 
    • Ensure new solution qualifies for the FCCs 
    Results
    • New, easy-to-use features and functionality, including call forwarding, conference calling and voicemail-to-email forwarding
    • No need for expensive phone cabling and PRI leases; new services can be activated with an Ethernet connection and a call to Mitel 
    • District can deploy state-of-the-art communications system despite aging properties 
    • Supports mission-critical communications and emergency services, even during disasters and power outages
