Managed IT support services for schools allow school districts to benefit from a suite of interoperable solutions that are fully managed and monitored with the help of artificial intelligence (AI) and an expert team. For example, through a managed services provider, schools can access video conferencing solutions, dedicated internet services and fixed wireless access for better connectivity, and secure cloud gateways for applications and devices that connect to their networks—all in one place.
By outsourcing school IT support services, schools can expand their IT capacity, reduce burdens on their IT personnel and take advantage of the latest security and connectivity solutions. They also won't have to worry about patches and upgrades, as these updates are largely automated or handled by their provider on a regular basis. Working with a managed services provider is especially beneficial for districts with resource constraints or very small IT teams.
While many schools have returned to in-person instruction, hybrid learning may continue to be an option going forward—either due to public health concerns, to allow for learning continuity during weather-related disruptions, or for neurodiverse students who learn best in this environment. Because of this, implementing secure, highly available and high-performing technology will be a requirement for schools to build more resilient learning environments.
Managed IT support services for schools can help districts scale school IT support and ensure technology isn't an impediment to delivering the best learning experience for students.
