Google for Education

Sheldon ISD has partnered with Google for Education to provide each staff member and student their own Google account. Depended on the student's grade level, they are provided access to Google Drive, GMail, Classroom, etc...
Citrix - Virtual Desktops

Sheldon ISD utilizes Citrix to provide campuses with virtual desktops. Instead of trying to manage thousands of desktops, VDI allows us to manage and updating Operating Systems and applications once, from one location, then deliver to each virtual desktop. VDI wil not only minimize spyware, malware and virus infections that could take hours to resolve, but Windows experience will be faster and less prone to failure than ever before. Since software failures are less likely, both administrative staff and teachers will benefit from the increase in uptime.

CIPA (Children's Internet Protection Act)

The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires that K-12 schools and libraries in the United States use Internet filters and implement other measures to protect children from harmful online content as a condition for federal funding. By utilizing ContentKeeper, we are able to provide each student/staff a safe browsing experience, whether on a district-owned device or a BYOD device.
