Case Study: Manatee County School District

Located on southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, Manatee County School District works to inspire its pupils to “Learn, Dream, and Achieve.” The student body of over 47,500 children, supported by 10,500 teachers and staff, is rapidly growing: The county’s natural beauty and commerce-friendly environment have made it a favored destination for families and businesses alike. New schools – at all age levels – are being constructed to accommodate the expanding population.

The school district has been a long-standing advocate of the positive impact of technology in education. In 2006, to accelerate pervasive Internet use, Manatee implemented a districtwide fiber network that provided each school and administration building with multiple 10 Gbps connections.
