Network Overview


Every classroom in the district contains one or more multimedia computers with filtered Internet access.  There are multiple computer labs with 24-30 student stations.  Several labs serve a specific purpose ranging from graphic art to world language.  Wireless access is available throughout each campus to serve both district owned notebooks and those who choose to bring their own device.

Holmdel Twp. Public School District maintains a network spread over three physical locations.  Schools are connected with gigabit Verizon business FiOS circuits.  Dedicated routing firewalls establish a VPN between each location.  

The district has embraced the Google Classroom LMS, which connects instructors and students inside and outside of schools.  Staff also has remote access to published applications through a secure access gateway that shares a dedicated Internet circuit with our Powerschool student management system.

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 classrooms and by the administration in order to achieve those objectives.
