Breeze Update

Over the Christmas break we did a fair bit of hardware, server and software work on the Breeze for Teachers system. Our visitor count per day reaches close to one million people between all schools and district web pages. To prepare for the next two quarters of the year, we've made a few changes:

  • We've added about 25% more physical processing power and memory to our environment
  • We changed from using the Apache web server (threaded processes) to Nginx (event driven)

We also have two exciting, highly requested feature changes:

  • Multiple bus routes can now be cancelled by geographic location
  • Absence requests for preferred substitutes now get a notification after approval
