Office of MIS and Instructional Technology

Role of MIS

 

The primary mission of MIS is to develop and deliver a technology vision that supports the goals and objectives of Monroe City Schools for both the present and the future.

MIS supports approximately 5000 computers, printers, and peripheral devices among the 21 networked district sites. The team performs installations, configurations, imaging, disposal, hardware repair, software installations, software packaging, troubleshooting, inventory, training, and licensing for various types of equipment in the district.

Network Information and Infrastructure

The MCS network is connected via fiber, as part of a former E-rate project. This high-speed, wide-area network allows the district to locate services centrally and to provide multimedia applications and a host of other technologies requiring high speed connectivity to all campuses in the district. Because this network is owned by MCS, there are no recurring costs of leased connections for in-district communications.

Information Systems

MIS supports the movement of data between student, personnel, business and other applications that sustain students and staff. These applications include instructional programs, textbooks, library system, cafeteria point of sale system, district-wide email system, and special education systems.
