The day-to-day management of over 34,000 user accounts was growing increasingly difficult and time-consuming for the Chino (California) Valley Unified School District. The management of all user accounts in Active Directory was an entirely manual process, creating enormous inefficiencies. The district lacked any clear standards and consistency. Third party scripts did nothing to simplify the situation or help with the management of accounts in other applications, such as Renaissance Learning, Riverdeep, Orchard, and Easy Grade Pro.
By June 2006, the system had reached a breaking point. “Because of our constant growth and limited staffing, we had to find a solution that would allow us to streamline and automate our entire user account lifecycle,” said Georges Khairallah, Network Specialist for the Chino Valley Unified School District. “That’s when we turned to Tools4ever.”
