Blackboard System Enhancement

Blackboard will be enhancing our server on Wednesday, March 14, 2018.  This upgrade will take place between 12:01 am and 12:30 am, and will result in Blackboard being down for a maximum of three minutes. This is a mandatory server upgrade to a more robust database deployment. According to Blackboard, this new database deployment offers more reliability and performance compared to our current configuration.
