    The Perth Amboy Public School District is proud to have a large Information Technology staff and network infrastructure to support growing technology offerings throughout the district.

    State of the Art Equipment
    Students and staff are given the opportunity to use some of the latest technology available in our district. Our goal is to provide all students at least one high-performing computer and/or tablet to use throughout the day in a one-to-one ratio. Our inventory of Chromebooks, PC Laptops, Macbooks, and iPads are in the hands of our students, educators, and support staff.  We’re always working with our school community to offer new equipment.  Many of our classrooms are equipped with smart boards that offer an interactive learning environment.

    A Powerful Network
    Our network supports the technological needs of students in all schools and staff within all of our buildings. Our infrastructure offers a 5gb connection to internet and we utilize a redundant, next-generation firewall solution to protect our network. We provide a secured wireless connection for endpoint connectivity as well as a Bring Your Own Device program for educators and administrators to collaborate via personal devices while on campus. Each building is connected to our network operations center via redundant 10Gb links on Dark Fiber which is maintained and supported by our data center staff.

    Dedicated Staff
    Our technology department, composed of over 20 staff members, works together to provide technology and information technology support for our entire district.
