School Offers Storage Lockers

MONTEZUMA, Iowa -- With only three schools and 494 students, the school district serving Montezuma, IA may lack size, but it has tackled its escalating data storage and security challenges with the savvy of the nation's most sophisticated K-12 learning institutions. This September, Montezuma Community Schools became Iowa's first district to implement "web locker" technology, joining hundreds of other schools and districts across the US. in the use of a new generation of web-based file sharing, collaboration and storage tools.

According to Keith Sietstra, business education teacher and assistant to the technology coordinator for Montezuma Community Schools, the decision to adopt technology from San Diego-based School Web Lockers was an easy one. "We really needed something that would offer our faculty and students an opportunity to work more efficiently from home and to be able to transport that work back to school," Sietstra said. "Being a smaller school district, we also needed an alternative that would help us use our budget wisely. School Web Lockers has definitely met that need."
