Simplify Your Campus Communications
Limited Capacity seats available

Effective communication is the most important ingredient in creating a well-informed, prepared and safe student. Providing engaging and consistent communications across a campus (or entire district) can be difficult.  With numerous stakeholders throughout a district who need to deliver information to students, the task can often be cumbersome, extremely technical and difficult to overcome. Solving these issues often takes multiple platforms, expensive hardware and hours of training.  These issues are all addressed with The Scholastic Network’s digital communications platform.  Our platform is built specifically for schools to conquer their unique communication challenges face when trying to deliver timely and important information to students.

Cloud Security Solutions for the K-12 Education Environment
Limited Capacity seats available

There are 3 distinct layers of cloud security that are fundamentally important to K-12 educational institutions that use Google G Suite, Office 365 and other cloud apps. It’s important to note, however, that not every layer is needed by every organization. Rather, the need is determined by local interests and priorities. What’s more, budget constraints may impact what schools can afford to put in place. In this session, Joey will explain these different layers, the types of security problems each address, representative vendors in each layer, and how to determine which layers are the right fit for your district. He will also discuss how ManagedMethods’ cloud security solution fits into these layers and how it works within a district’s existing infrastructure at an affordable price. Finally, you’ll hear how some of our Texas school district customers are protecting their students and staff by securing their cloud application data.
