Strawn Independent School District (ISD) in Texas installed Carina:Building for school Public Address (PA) announcements, emergency notifications, classroom intercoms, clock synchronization, and bell scheduling for their school campuses.
A severe lightning strike disabled Strawn’s PA system. For years, the school district dealt with the malfunctioning of their old analog PA system. The predicament escalated when lightning destroyed their head end, leading to the permanent shutdown of their PA system. Without any surplus budget for a new school PA system, this unfortunate circumstance posed a significant challenge for students, teachers, parents, and school administrators. Strawn ISD needed a quick solution amidst constrained budget conditions.
Fortunately, Strawn ISD discovered budget-friendly Carina:Building, a digital IP PA system to replace their defunct analog PA system. The school district implemented Carina:Building throughout the school district at a savings of up to 50%. Call buttons in classrooms were installed, enabling teachers to seek immediate assistance. In larger common areas, Carina:Signage ensured that important messages were visible and audible to all students and staff members. Strawn ISD succeeded in replacing their obsolete analog system with the comprehensive IP-based Carina:Building within their budget.
