Wadsworth City Schools



Wadsworth City Schools – a triple-A school district, emphasizing Academics, Athletics, and the Arts. Our focus is to produce well-rounded students who are well-prepared for the challenges of the 21 st Century. For the past seven years, our district has been designated Excellent by the Ohio Department of Education, and this year we have attained Excellence with Distinction. This ranking is based on student achievement resulting from superior instruction, and only 116 public districts out of 610 statewide have been so named. Our district motto is, “Where Quality Education is a Community Tradition”

Why Wadsworth City Schools implemented the Acuity-vct Video Capture System

Safety of the children at the Wadsworth School District is a top priority. In addition, Wadsworth has always taken pride in their ability to maximize technology dollars to remain on the cutting edge of educational and computer innovation. Acuity’s product enabled Wadsworth City Schools to provide a superior security surveillance solution which protects the students and faculty, while also being the most cost effective system available.

When looking for replacement technology for our aging analog video security system, we considered other highly visible products in the industry. In fact, were about to purchase another system until I saw the VCS's capabilities at the Ohio SchoolNet Conference. Only Acuity's VCS system offered a non-priority industry standard solution that took advantage of our existing network. By utilizing our existing network, we were able to cost effectively obtain a state of the art video surveillance system that is second to none.

In fact, utilizing the VCS’s networking capabilities, we were able to purchase one VCS system that is capable of being used throughout our entire school district, rather than other products that required one or more systems at each location to accomplish the same goal.

I recommend the VCS to any school district in America that is interested in maximizing its' technology dollars while not compromising quality”.
