The Challenge

Paragua was tasked to design solutions for three outdated areas: the computer lab, website and internal technology system.
"Paragua helped our School Board better understand how important our website is for those wanting to learn more about our school, and how we can use it effectively to better market ourselves."

Enterprise Level Network

Identifying internal upgrades as priority, we first improved the network to handle a mobile tablet lab. By increasing WIFI dependability throughout the facility, connectivity issues they experienced were decreased. A separate visitor network allowed freedom of information while keeping DGAS assets protected from visiting devices

Custom Website Design

A fully responsive web design gave DGAS a sophisticated online presence. A back end Content Management System (CMS) allowed faculty and staff to easily update documents, images & news.

Shared Mobile iPad Lab

With more students than devices, we created a shared iPad environment where each student can log into any iPad and access all of their personal digital content. Teachers, using the Apple Classroom App, are able to monitor each student's iPad activity, view their screens and lock them in specific apps during different parts of the day.

G Suite For Education

Free for schools, we harnessed the G Suite platform to bring DGAS, free emails, collaborative sharing, and easy classroom management.

Case Study

The Downers Grove Adventist School came to us with the hope of updating their network infrastructure, document management, student devices & overall public image. We intentionally rolled out each of the following four solutions.

iPad Lab

With an outdated desktop computer lab this school seeked to gain back an entire room of space and use only a mobile shared iPad Lab between rooms. The following were also achieved:

  • Individual School Managed Student Accounts Saved in the Cloud
  • Easy Teacher iPad Monitoring with Apple Classroom App
  • Student iPad Activity Monitoring
  • Bluetooth Keyboards for typing training (TypingPal)

Custom Website

Updating their web presence to a more modern, custom look DGAS now confidently represents their school online. What their web solution included:

  • Responsive Website Design
  • Custom Photos & Icons
  • Dynamic Faculty Pages
  • Integrated News & Announcements Blog
  • Easy ability for staff to update & change information on website

Network Management

Upgrading to an enterprise level network solution, DGAS was able to prepare for their mobile iPad lab by first upgrading their network. Their network now includes:

  • Guest access portal
  • Private school network
  • Filtered and blocked websites
  • Strong dependable WIFI signal throughout structure
  • Wireless Printing

G Suite

The ability to easily collaborate and manage classrooms was achieved by integrating G Stuite for Education which is a free unlimited solution for educational facilities. We were able to:

  • Migrate Existing Email Accounts
  • Limit Student G Suite Access
  • Set Permissions per Google App per User Group

What makes us the right choice

Website Design

Though we all hate to admit it, people judge a business based on their web presence. If anything is off we automatically assume "they don't know what they are doing. We ensure your presence not only conveys your NGO properly, but yada yada yada. Something about the Webflow Platform we work on.
