IT Services for Schools

The days of textbooks and chalkboards have given way to learning through new digital devices and online education applications that require schools to take a different approach to K-12 education. Successful schools are embracing technology and are focused on these key components.

  • Connectivity is key as it dictates the pace of learning.
  • The pace of learning determines student success and academic achievement.
  • Access to infrastructure, Google Docs and software applications are mostly all online.
  • Protecting students and staff with a secure online learning environment is a must.


Why Schools are Boosting Speeds and Migrating to the Cloud

Consider the growth of digital devices and technology being used in schools today paired with the strain on IT resources over a secure network with local hardware on-site, you'll quickly discover that managing things the way you always have is simply holding you back from achieving more. This “stay the course” approach also doesn’t work for students.


It's why many schools are taking a new approach and looking to Cox Business to partner with them in a managed, collaborative environment. This new paradigm comes with faster connectivity speeds, secure and reliable network management from industry experts, cloud infrastructure that helps school reduce overall costs, and a partner with 20+ years of experience in IT for education.

Changing Environments

The traditional visual of children sitting in classroom desks supported by teachers in front of chalkboards has changed. Teacher tools and student learning styles have evolved to a learning platform that is  now nearly fully digital.

Evolving Technology

The technology landscape is moving faster than ever before. Schools face big challenges like ever-growing connectivity needs, ensuring their network is secure and reliable, and securing funding to support it.

Digital Equity & Access

For some students, connecting to learning at school may be the only time they can connect at all. Some may be limited at home with availability to electronic devices or Internet at all. Cox offers eligible families connectivity options through Connect2Compete and plans that align with the FCC’s broadband program.
