Last year, schools all over the nation found themselves adjusting to a new remote learning environment, with very little time to adapt. 2020 saw many districts expanding or creating 1:1 programs with difficult circumstances, various limitations, and minimal preparation.
Hayes Software Systems and CDW-G have been amazed by stories from school districts over this past year, such as Neosho School District’s in Missouri.
Neosho School District (MO)
Neosho School District implemented a 1:1 system for their middle school and high school students. The school district faced difficulty at the beginning of the pandemic because their K-6 students did not take devices home.
When schools began closing in 2020, Neosho was getting back from spring break, meaning that the technology department lost out on a week of preparation. When the staff came back, they put their heads together to create a solution as to how they would get these devices into students’ hands.
The team created two device checkout locations staffed by ten people. Neosho School Technician Brady Daugherty credits the TIPWeb-IT 10.5 update as a “lifesaver” when moving devices from buildings to students. Neosho used Hayes’ asset management software to quickly check out devices to students to ensure they could continue learning at home.

With uncertainty still lingering and devices always moving, districts are adopting best practices to mitigate loss and ensure student safety. The global pandemic presented some unique challenges, but schools everywhere have proven their ability to adapt to difficult circumstances.
As a result, districts have learned how to manage assets better, improve processes, and prepare for the future with inventory systems like TIPWeb-IT.
