Partnership Improves Wireless Performance

Jun 4, 2012

The partnership between Illini West High School and Carl Sandburg College has grown to include support for the high school's wireless network.

The two already offer dual-credit classes.

Superintendent Kim Schilson says the district has looked for help with limitations of its wireless network for years.

The school board turned to the college's information technology department in March for help.

Schilson says this is the first time the high school has seen progress.

Illini West High School students have seen computers on the school's wireless network freeze up with annoying regularity. The episodes often cause students to lose some of their work.

Superintendent Kim Schilson said the latest attempt won't involve a commercial firm.

She said, “We're working with Carl Sandburg College and their technology department. And they're coming and installing some new equipment and new wires. And hopefully, that's going to solve the problems.”
