The computer lab provides 30 Dell OptiPlex 7040 desktop computers for teachers and students at Saugerties High School. The computers employ Intel Core i5 6500 microprocessor CPU's running at 3.20 GHz. The computers have 8.00 gigabytes of RAM (Random Access Memory) and 455 gigabyte hard drives. We use the Microsoft Windows 10 Professional operating system. The computer lab now has Dell P2314H 23-inch flat panel monitors with aspect ratio of 16:9 and a maximum preset resolution of 1920 X 1080 @ 60 Hertz at each workstation. For students and teachers, the school computer network provides up to 6 GB of storage space per person on our network "users" drive, as well as shared network space on the "common" drive. Our software includes programs for word processing, presentations, and desktop publishing, including the Microsoft Office 2013 package of programs, as well as keyboarding tutorials, graphic design, image processing, and academic subjects from mathematics to nutrition. Through Ulster BOCES, our school computer network also provides a fast and reliable fiber optic connection to the internet.
We have recently added 2 ASUS/Google Chrome Boxes to the computer lab. These devices offer quick access to Google Docs, Google Slides, G-mail, Google Classroom, and Google Drive to anyone with a Google account, which includes all of our students, teachers, and other staff. On the Chrome Boxes, a user can type in his or her Google password and get to the internet instantly without having to log on to the school network first. The work completed within these Google applications is, of course, saved automatically to "the cloud."
The computer lab is available from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., from homeroom through 9th period, every school day for research, writing, study, assignments and project work. Teachers can reserve the lab for their classes for particular periods, and students may use the lab at other times, including their lunch periods and study halls, as needed.
