The computer lab now provides 30 new Dell OptiPlex 7460 All-In-One desktop computers for teachers and students at Saugerties High School. The computers employ Intel Core i5 8500 microprocessor CPU's running at 3.00 GHz. The computers have 8.00 gigabytes of DDR4 SDRAM (Double Data Rate 4 Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) and 117 GB solid state drives (SATA Class 20 Solid State Drives). We use the Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit operating system. This latest model computer has a 24-inch flat panel monitor 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 server space on the "common" drive. Our software includes programs for word processing, presentations, and desktop publishing, including the Microsoft Office 2016 Professional Plus 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 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 1st period 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.
