Cisco Unified Personal Communicator PILOT: Update

CUP-C desktop shortcutA select group of participating staff at TA Howard Middle School and Summit High School will soon be piloting “softphones” through the use of Cisco Unified Personal Communicator Client, or CUP-C. We are excited about the potential for this tool! Through their computers teachers will be able to make and receive telephone calls from either inside or outside of the District.  Users are also equipped with voicemail.

Features that can be used only within the district include instant messaging and videoconferencing. Use of the videoconferencing feature may require a Cisco-branded camera. This may not be a feature that is necessary for day-to-day use.

After the evaluation period participants will complete a survey that will provide useful information as we plan future implementations of CUP-C. To preview a training video, go to

    I think this is a great idea. This is just one more tool that teachers can use to communicate with parents and their colleagues. I am personally excited by the changes the tech dept. are making.

    I am very excited to see that the administration is treating us like professionals. I remember the day when we had to hunt for a private place to hold a phone conference with a parent. Thank you Dr. Brubaker for making these important decisions to bring us into the millenium!
