Applications include email for all staff, Google Apps for Education, a student information system (Infinite Campus), data tools (EADMS), communication tools (Infinite Campus Portals and Schoolloop), and library, food service, and curricular databases. We manage technology issues related to construction, purchasing, and recycling of equipment.

Donations.


Donations

Cabrillo Unified schools are very grateful for all the offers of technology donations that we receive. To maintain a reasonable level of consistency and performance in the district's equipment, we accept computers and peripherals that integrate with the district's ability to service and maintain our many computers, printers, and the networks that they use. Therefore, donations need to be pre-approved.
If you have questions or need further assistance, please contact one of the technology staff.
All accepted donations will receive a letter of confirmation for tax purposes. After you have received donation approval from the Technology Office, be sure to leave your name, business, and address with your equipment when you drop it off. For donations that we do not accept, you might try contacting other area non-profits, or a recycling center such as CRC.
