Somerset ISD Mission Statement:
To provide quality educational experiences for all students to reach their full potential.
Welcome to the Technology Department. We are committed to providing the best customer service in support of all district processes both instructionally and technically.
Fiber Connections District-Wide
All our campuses are connected via fiber to our network core enabling our district's end users to utilize all resources effectively and efficiently. Private fiber connects all campuses located within the city limits. Leased fiber connects both Barrera Veterans Elementary and Savannah Heights Intermediate.
Cisco VOIP and Wireless Network
We currently have a district-wide VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) Telephone system in place. Besides departments and offices, all teachers in the district have a phone in their classrooms. These phones function as a first-line of communication for teachers and assist them in maintaining communication with parents. The VOIP network is supported by the Federal E-Rate program. The district has used funds reimbursed through E-Rate applications to purchase VOIP phones for all classrooms.
Somerset ISD also boasts of a district-wide wireless environment. This environment supports the use of laptop carts for students, teacher-assigned laptops and Tablet PCs for teachers and administrators. District and campus administrators use their iPads to conduct classroom walkthroughs by using a web-based template.
