Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), the largest school system in Kentucky, has deployed Extreme high-density Wi-Fi 6 access points and the ExtremeCloud IQ network management platform as part of a district-wide upgrade.

The refreshed network enables remote learning and powers cutting-edge digital education programs and applications for 200,000 users across 169 schools, ensuring consistent and secure access to critical educational resources and allowing the district to utilize data to improve student safety.

Annette Harris, Assistant Director of Infrastructure Services, JCPS, said: “We are working with a small IT group in an enormous district, and my network team has to fill multiple roles. Without good support and dependable infrastructure, all our resources become locked up in network management.

“But with Extreme, we’re currently reporting 99% network uptime, and our team likes every product we’ve deployed. When we’re asked how we could quickly pivot to remote learning and still accomplish so many technology-driven initiatives in a system with nearly 200,000 users, it is because of the reliable support and network infrastructure that we know we can expect from Extreme.”

David Savage, Senior Director of Education Sales, Extreme Networks, said: “Jefferson County Public Schools is a forward-thinking district and its cloud-driven approach to Digital Transformation is one to emulate.”
