The Cottonwood Oak Creek School District consists of six local area networks called LANs making up one wide area network, or WAN.  Classroom technology is centered on the Apple Macintosh platform while our Administrative computing platform is based on Microsoft Windows XP systems. The network is linked through fiber optics and high speed communications lines. Internet Services are provided through Qwest.

Our main location at One North Willard Street, consists of the District Offices, Cottonwood Elementary(K-5) and Middle (6-8) Schools. Dr. Daniel Bright (K-5) Campus lies approximately three miles to the south. Cornville School (K-8) is about 10 miles east. Mountain View Preparatory is about five miles to the south.

What to do to start school year
Start-of-School Tech Support Needs

Each summer, computers and printers are often moved out of your classroom and then put back into your classroom without being connected and ready for the first day of school.

To best prepare for the start of school - teachers or custodial staff should place computers on furniture located within 6-10 feet of network jacks and electric outlets. The Tech staff will then connect and configure the equipment for network use and setup email for the teachers who are new or in a new classroom. The Tech staff is very busy preparing for the start of school and will not be moving or arranging furniture.

Configuring the printers for new staff or for teachers who have moved can be problematic as the tech staff has to have your computer (logged in) in the room to do this job. We try to do as many as possible as they are at a location and if you are missed when they are on your campus, we may not be back to your location for a day or two. Please be patient.

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
