Notice: LTE Tower Update
Due to federal mandate, KCOE is undergoing a complete equipment replacement of the existingKingsNet LTE network. This endeavor consists of the following phases:
1) New Equipment Installation on Tower
2) Cutover to New Equipment/ Retire Existing Equipment
3) Optimize New Network for Maximum Performance
4) Network Upgrade Complete
Phase 1 is 100% completed. All 16 LTE locations have been populated with the new system.
Phase 2 is approximately 70% completed with the following locations on the new system:
*Pioneer Middle School
*Earl F. Johnson
*Mark Twain Elementary
The proposed schedule for the remaining sites is as follows:
*Parkview (1/19, 4:00pm)
*Island (1/20, 4:00pm)
*No Upgrade (1/21)
*Corcoran (1/22. 4:00pm)
*Lemoore Service Center & Engvall (1/23, 7:00am)
Close proximity to each other dictates that they be migrated simultaneously.
Once all sites confirm operability on the new system, Phase 3 will begin. Once underway, this phase will take approximately 2 weeks to complete as network-wide adjustments will be made to optimize performance and user experience. During this time, users can expect to experience periodic network degradation while adjustments are made. In order to minimize class disruption for Kings County students who are learning remotely, care will be taken to make adjustments during non-school hours. Users can greatly help in this effort by eliminating or minimizing use of non-school resources and applications, such as Gaming Consoles, Video applications such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Fire Stick, ROKU, and APPLE TV devices during school hours. Kings County Office of Education’s mission is to Support Student Learning, and anything you can do as a user to assist in that effort is greatly appreciated.
Phase 4 is expected to be reached by February 1 st . All efforts will be made to complete network adjustments as soon as possible. We are now entering our second consecutive school year that has provided us unique challenges to the way we are accustomed to teaching our students. Part of that is finding new and innovative ways to provide our students the resources they need that will allow them to have the best learning experience.
To emphasize what you can do to help all of Kings County students :
Please eliminate or minimize use of non-school resources and applications, such as Gaming Consoles, Video streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Fire Stick, ROKU, and APPLE TV during school hours.
