Holmdel Township Schools

Network Overview


Every classroom in the district contains one or more multimedia computers with network and filtered Internet access. There are thirteen computer labs with 24-30 student stations. Several labs serve a specific purpose ranging from graphic art to world language. Wireless access is widely available to serve both the 358 district owned notebooks and those who choose to (BYOD) bring your own device.

Holmdel Twp. Public School District maintains a network spread over three physical locations. Schools are connected with 35/35 Mb/s Verizon business FiOS circuits and a Juniper routing firewall establishes a VPN with each location. By the start of the 2012/2013 school year each school will have two connections to the Internet. One connection from Verizon for district owned devices and one from Comcast for guest wireless devices.

Remote access to published applications is provided to staff through a Citrix secure access gateway and shares a dedicated Internet circuit with our Powerschool student management and Microsoft Exchange messaging systems.

William R. Satz School and Holmdel High School have both embraced Web 2.0 tools to reduce paper consumption and improve collaboration. Google Docs has been adopted in many classrooms in order to achieve those objectives.
