FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. How many daily users do you see on the network?
A. This was partially answered on our RFP, “RFP-Cat1-FY21-1”, in Part I, Number 3. We have approximately 330 students at Peakview School and approximately 160 students at John Mall High School. Staff add in an additional 60 between the two schools. In total for our MAIN CAMPUS, 550 average daily users.
Q. Is there any 1:1 or BYOD program planned or in place?
A. We do have a 1:1 Chromebook distribution to all of our students in Kindergarten through Twelfth grades.
Our district is currently seeking grant funding along with a bond (passed November 2020) contingent upon receipt of grant to build a new high school on the same property, just slightly further East than the current buildings, which encourages us to seek the primary location to be at Peakview School, located at 375 West Pine Street, Walsenburg, CO 81089.
It is acceptable for the district administrator office to have a separate connection, or it can be part of the same WAN.Our Current provider has a headend/fiber popsite located elsewhere in town and has both bridged in a WAN connection, allowing both sites to utilize the same public IP address space. They are technically considered separate circuits as far as I can tell, even though they have the ports bridged/vlaned.
Currently, Gardner Valley School receives their Internet Access through a WISP. Our provider, which was the same for the other schools and district office, just recently sold off their wireless ISP service to another vendor.
