July storm causes server damage at Union North School Corporation
Union North School Board Corporation has had a hiccup in their ability to serve their students better. After the July 1 electrical storm that ran through the northern Indiana area, the school discovered that five of their servers had been damaged in the storm. The corporation has spent $140,000 to replace the five servers and $1,300 for the Apple computer that updates student iPads.
"It's going to be a slow and bumpy process, but our tech group has done an outstanding job to ensure what we do have," Superintendent Mitchell Mawhorter explained.
Though there is limited access and functionality, the technology department is working as quickly as it can to maintain functioning systems for the beginning of the school year, starting August 12.
