Educational institutions have some unique needs in the realm of IT products and services. Schools often have multiple labs with hundreds to thousands of workstations and laptops that are all under constant use by staff and students. Federal regulations, including the CIPA act, create additional technology needs. IT staff in schools must always be diligent about their network, its users, security and content getting accessed on a daily basis.
Carolina Advanced Digital, Inc. participates heavily in the education spaces throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. We offer many value-added services at no charge to K-12 schools, charter schools, libraries, community colleges and universities in the region and participate extensively with the state DPI (Department of Public Instruction) agencies that govern our schools.
