West Aurora School District 129

The school district had an aging communications system serving 1,800 employees across 20 older buildings, which 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. 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,” said Don Ringelestein, Director Technology West Aurora School District 129
