School districts all around the country have been using E-rate funding to spark digital transformation in their classrooms. One such district is the Wayne Highlands School District. Wayne Highlands SD covers 435 square miles in northeast Pennsylvania and is the second largest geographic school district in the state. The district places a strong focus on technology to enable digital learning in the classroom, and its Office of Information Technology Services is constantly striving to increase the range and reliability of technology services it delivers.

Scott D. Miller, Wayne Highlands School District’s Director of Technology, recently focused on revamping the district network infrastructure from the ground up to better support the district’s technological goals and programs. He applied for and received funding from the E-rate program in fiscal year 2015. Using that funding, Scott and his team were able to purchase and deploy a full stack Meraki solution for the revamp.

Now Wayne Highlands relies on Cisco Meraki APs, switches, security appliances, and MDM – to supply students and teachers with a robust wireless network. The solution also provides Scott and his team unparalleled visibility, ease of management, and control.

To learn more about Wayne Highlands’ use of E-rate funding to revamp their network infrastructure and the results Scott and his team are seeing from the full stack Meraki solution, register for the upcoming webinar, “Full Stack Meraki Magic at Wayne Highlands SD”, happening on Tuesday, March 29th at 11 AM PT.
