Support SpecialistErie 1 BOCES 716-821-7171 Mon-Tues Help DeskLewiston-Porter operates a district network using many servers facilitating the use of programs like Accelerated Reader, PowerSchool, WinSnap for Food Service, Google Apps for Education, as well as several other programs.
Our LAN network is comprised of over 500 Windows computers along with more than 2000 iPads and Chromebooks throughout the district, which access a fiber network with a speed of one gigabit. Our Technology Department maintains all of these computers and related equipment, such as printers, projectors, scanners, etc. We also plan for network improvements, staff development in cooperation with Erie 1 and Orleans/Niagara BOCES, and future upgrades to existing equipment.
In cooperation with Erie 1 BOCES, and as a requirement by New York State to enable us to receive state aid on our computer purchases, we have developed a District Technology Plan. This was written by a large committee of stakeholders, which included students and parent representatives. The plan was approved by our Board of Education and has become the blueprint for the planning of our technology in the district.
