bSWATT Meeting Action Items March 4, 2014

HB 131 Update and Discussion-Cory/Randy/Charlie
This bill would have provided $200 million dollars for technology but it looks like it dead.

Final wired evaluation report update-Jack/Cory

Review LEAF (bSWATT and board approved SEDC to discontinue the support of LEAF come July 1st, 2013, but we have a request to keep it)-Cory/Kevin/Jack
The committee agreed to keep the LEAF server up and running for at least July 1, 2015.  We will re-address this next spring (2015).  Jack will get with Brent J. to discuss the possibility of Kane and Garfield district using of the system.  SEDC will continue to find application for using LEAF.  The LEAF server will not be updated and we will continue to keep it running.

How to handle the cost for those not showing up to the  Regional Retreat in Mesquite($90.00)-Jack/Cory
The committee agreed that the folks that registered but did not show up for the retreat should be billed.  SEDC will take care of this.
 
MS Security Essentials/Virus Scanning solutions next steps-Scott
The committee agreed that SEDC should get pricing once again for a 3 year 10,000 user contract for Bit Defender.  Once we get the pricing,  bSWATT will make a final decision and we will go from there.

Directory/AD Discussion-Scott/Cory
Scott will develop a list of services that AD can provide access to and support.  He is currently working with UEN to tie AD to MyUEN.  We will report these services and provide an update before our next bSWATT meeting.  Scott will develop a full project plan(stakeholder input, timelines, scope, communication, etc.) for implementation and rollout for this summer.

Video surveillance purchasing contract -Jack/Cory
Jack is currently working on an official RFP for purchasing cameras and licenses.  He will try to get pricing through this RFP for the next 2-3 years.  This should be completed in the next week and send to vendors for final pricing by the first of April.  Once the purchasing contracts are in place, SEDC will purchase Exqact licenses for the districts once every 3 months (first day of each quarter), this will start July 1, 2014.

 Canvas next steps-Cory 

Jack will develop an official project charter and proof of concept document describing the pros and cons of hosting a regional Canvas server for our schools.  Charlie will work with his team to gather information as well.  This will be presented to the bSWATT in the next couple of weeks for a final vote for SEDC moving forward with this project.
