New Technology for KHSD Students

It is an exciting time to be associated with the new wave of instructional technology that has swept through the District.  We are implementing new technology in all areas of instruction, from general instruction to new CTE programs.


We have successfully installed a district wide WiFi network that enables students to connect to our network from any classroom on any campus. We have also created a BYOD network that allows students to connect with their own devices when used for instructional purposes. For students traveling to our ROC center to take advantage of the CTE offerings, we have installed WiFi on the buses that transport them to the site.


To serve all these new devices and connections, we have updated our internet access. We now have up to 10Gig of bandwidth available for both students and staff.


Please take a look at the presentation below to see all the exciting updates we have implemented.
