How one district took a new approach to technology
According to the Juneau County Star-Times in a recent news story, the New Lisbon School District took a new approach to IT support for the 2021-2022 school year by joining forces with Dependable Solutions, an IT team based out of Prairie du Chien, for services.
Dependable Solutions owner Joe Ruskey recently provided an update to the New Lisbon Board of Education on the team’s work during a meeting of the school board.
According to Ruskey, the team has saved the district about $17,600 so far as a result of projects implemented during the current school year. The savings includes a $5,600 rebate from old, unused equipment that was shipped to a vendor and $2,000 from the IT professionals at Dependable Solutions taking over management of the district’s firewall. The district received a grant for $10,000 to conduct an internal/external cybersecurity scan that the team performed with 100% of the costs reimbursed.
“It hadn’t been done and (the district) was going to lose the money come March 15,” Ruskey said.
District Administrator Adam Englebretson said the district is pleased with the work done so far.
