CHAPPAQUA, N.Y.-- Chappaqua Schools updated their IT infrastructure and as a result, also gave the schools a needed boost in security.

One of the many improvements being made this summer is a switch from the current analog phone system to Internet telephony. Also known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Internet telephony makes use of the school district’s data network, placing calls over the public Internet rather than utilizing the standard public switched telephone network (PSTN).

Many of the schools were experiencing interruptions in service with the old system, according to Joe Gramando, director of Facilities, Operations, and Maintenance.

With the new system, if 911 is called from any phone, police will now know the exact building and room location of where the call was placed, and designated district personnel will be alerted as well. And 711 can be dialed to alert administrators of other emergencies.

The new system drastically reduces the number of phone and fax lines needed, and eliminates numerous direct-dial lines throughout the district, along with their related monthly service costs.

Here is a listing of the new phone numbers in the district:

  • District Main Number (Ed. Center): 238-7200
  • Greeley: 238-7201
  • Bell: 238-7202
  • Seven Bridges: 238-7203
  • Grafflin: 238-7204
  • Roaring Brook: 238-7205
  • Westorchard: 238-7206
  • Special Education: 238-7207
  • Technology: 238-7208
  • Facilities: 238-7210
