(SAVANNAH, GA) Speros, a Savannah-based technology services company, has installed new campus-wide WiFi capabilities at the Savannah Christian Preparatory School to provide greater technology opportunities for students and enable the school to move closer to its goal of offering a “one-to-one” campus for students.

The upgrade coincided with multiple building and infrastructure improvements at Savannah Christian’s main campus on Chatham Parkway in conjunction with the school’s decision to close satellite campuses and consolidate all grades in one location.

Over the years, the school had installed a mix of different types of WiFi access points across the campus, none of which were centrally managed and did not support adequate demand for teacher, student, and guest access. The new system unites the wireless infrastructure and provides ample room for students to use school-provided devices in classrooms and labs and to bring their own devices.

“Heather Radtke and the Speros team provided a solution that has helped re-position Savannah Christian as a more technologically focused school,” said Rick Tindol, the school’s director of technology. “We use technology to teach traditional classes as well as courses that focus on technology, such as our CAD curriculum. It also allows us to prepare students for jobs that don’t exist yet.”

All students, from kindergarten through twelfth grade, use a mix of iPads, PCs, and Chromebooks, but middle and upper school students may also bring their own devices to access the new student network. Tindol said about 650 devices access the system daily. Those include personal devices used by teachers and students, teachers’ desktop computers and 200 Chromebooks and 100 iPads provided by the school.

“Our goal is to make Savannah Christian a one-to-one campus, meaning every student will have their own device,” Tindol said. “We’re not there yet, as some classrooms have desktops that students share, but this new system allows us to get there.”

The upgrade also allows Tindol and his team to better manage and oversee student internet access, as the new equipment offers separate networks for students, teachers and guests and provides a greater layer of security in protecting school records and student privacy.

“We have a longstanding relationship with Speros, having used their phone systems for at least 20 years,” Tindol said. “We’ve come to rely on them for technological support as well as to provide the solutions we seek in offering 21st-century learning skills to our students.”

"Great staff! immediately responsive to our urgent repair requests. They were meticulous in diagnosing our issues and made the repairs as quickly as they could. They are a pleasure to work with! Speros provided emergency repair service during a weekend when our cabling suffered accidental damage. Speros dispatched two technicians that worked tirelessly to restore the multiple severed fiber cables.  It was not long before the entire campus was back to normal.  It was exceptional and timely service by Speros."

"Speros has been our law firm's primary internet service provider for 10+ years. Rarely do I need to ask for a service work order because they are on top of regular maintenance. Recently, I was getting requests to reboot following critical software, asked to set reboots to be automatic after midnight, so it did not disrupt our workdays. Within 30 minutes of my request, it was done. THAT is good service. THANK YOU, SPEROS Team."

"Everyone at Speros was very friendly and helpful. They communicated with our existing software/hardware management company and made it out to work on our network quickly on short notice, and had the whole issue solved in very little time. Will use this business again for our network needs. The tech that came out was amazingly easy to work with and was respectful of our hospitals covid-19 policies."
