What are the technology updates? Jeff Bucher
STEM will be online for the summer, if needed. ITC staffers under Jeff will move to the former BSO office area including programmers, HelpDesk, and web team. 

Starting with Student Services, IT will begin to recreate workstations to move towards a "mobile workforce" in the Fall per District. Financial Aid lab will need physical computers and the Assessment lab will need landing zones for laptops to plug into. 

Changing from a desktop model to a laptop model. IT expects a significant amount of change in the near future, especially if a hybrid model is an option for employees. Home access of personal equipment and computers used for work is phasing out.

New High Flex classrooms will have display monitors and cameras to provide a combination of in-person and remote class options. 

IT will be purchasing laptops for employees to use both at home (in case of pandemics, toxic smoke) and on campus. Out of 66 laptops available from IT, all but 4 have been assigned. Using one time HEERF funding, IT will be able to replace these loaned out laptops with docking stations (and assigned workstations). 

Hot spots were purchased for the Athletics department to be able to stream games.

Wireless connectivity in the multi-tiered Parking Garage will provide availability and a safe, personal space for students to sit in their car and use their computers between classes.
What are the budget updates? Koue Vang
For the second year in a row, the College Discretionary Funds budget for ARC maybe cut by 50%.  This amount would equate to $1.4 million. More to come after May Revise.
