Executive Summary

The Lake Washington School District (LWSD) administers 50 public schools serving nearly 24,000 students in cities near Seattle, Washington. For years, LWSD has been a satisfied user of the Windows XP operating system, but with the release of Windows Vista Business, the district saw an opportunity to take advantage of improved IT management, networking, and security features. Working with HP, LWSD has so far deployed Windows Vista to 6,500 student, faculty, and staff computers, and 6,500 more computers will receive the new operating system as older hardware is replaced. Now, LWSD can continue its policy of offering advanced technology that is easy to manage and use, while strengthening IT security and simplifying network connectivity.
