Cisco Case Study: Bellevue Christian School

A quick shift to distance learning

When schools closed in March, it only took three days for Bellevue Christian School to train staff and pivot to virtual learning. For students and staff alike, joining class was fast and easy.



  • Needed to plan, train staff, and launch distance learning program quickly
  • Required a network that was ready for any student to connect via any device
  • Safeguard students and staff from unsuitable content and unauthorized attendees

Impressive outcomes

  • Classes shifted from in-person to interactive distance learning within days
  • Strong encryption to meet the most stringent security requirements
  • Digital whiteboarding, co-editing, and interactive polling engage students and teachers

We had three days

Our first planning day was March 2. We had to have a plan and all of the tools and platforms ready to go for teachers by the morning of March 6. It was a huge task. With Webex, we got all the functionality that we wanted--plus it keeps our teachers and students safe.
