Customer Name: Baugo Community Schools Location: Elkhart, Indiana Business ImpactBusiness Challenge Baugo Community Schools has about 2000 students and 250 support staff including 130 teachers. Students are provided Chromebooks, while teachers use PCs and MacBooks. David Wolford, the Instructional Tech at Baugo Community Schools is determined to implement a 100% 1:1 Chromebook policy. This parity is essential to enable students and teachers to live in the same world when it comes to the technology they use. Though the school did use Untangle, their inability to provide identity-based reporting in place of IP-based reporting prompted them to look for other solutions. Identity-based reporting and active reporting were considered important to help the school monitor bullying issues and intervene immediately. Problems arose due to the gap between at-home monitoring and parents’ understanding of at-home web filtering, which the previous provider was unable to resolve. Customer support from other competitors under consideration included “ridiculous response time”, and complicated whitelisting procedures. Cost was also a major factor in view of the transition to Chromebooks and the 1:1 goal.
