Pittsford Central School District, in NY State has just rolled out Live@edu to their 6000 students. Prior to this deployment, Pittsford had been struggling with inefficient communications between their teachers and students. After a pilot of the service, and in partnership with CGS, Pittsford went into production, and have realized the following benefits:
- Helps teachers maintain focus on academics
- Saves U.S.$40,000 yearly on storage and backup
- Provides new opportunities for academic innovation
- They also had some GREAT quotes to share…
“Based on the enthusiasm of staff members who participated in the pilot and of students whom we recently polled, we anticipate a 90 percent adoption rate by our third year of having implemented Live@edu, and following it, Office 365.” Charles Profitt Systems Administrator, Pittsford Central School District,
“File incompatibility, versioning conflicts, work left on the home computer or a misplaced Flash drive—Live@edu will put out all those fires.” Jeff Cimmerer Director of Technology, Pittsford Central School District
“Thanks to Live@edu, I’ll worry a lot less about the logistics of email communications with my students, and focus a lot more on the content of those communications.” Karen Smith Instructor of Environmental Sciences, Mendon High School, Pittsford Central School District
