Instructional Technology Staff
Instructional Technology consists of Instructional Technology Specialists, Project Specialists, Student Database Manager, and Learning Media Services.
Instructional Technology Specialists support the development of digitally fluent educators who are empowered to be excellent technology integrators and who create future ready classroom environments. The Instructional Technology Specialists are internationally recognized educational leaders who design and deliver professional learning that promotes purposeful and effective technology integration.
This department supports district initiatives such as the 1:1 Chromebook rollout, Windows 10 upgrade, and online textbook support. Each specialist supports mutiple curriculum areas and coordinates campus technology professional learning at over 70 campuses across the district.
ETSI (Educational Technology Success Initiative) is a multi-day summer professional learning experience, created by the Instructional Technology Specialist team, designed to empower ed tech leaders on each campus.
Project Specialists support campus initiatives as diverse as creating Internet pages to integrating a video image device into a social studies unit of study and everything in between. In addition to supporting an identified curriculum content area K-12, we ask the specialists to also be "generalists" when it comes to various curriculum and grade level applications.
The Student Database Managers' responsibilities include supporting our electronic gradebook and attendance system (Pinnacle), and the School Messenger automated calling system.
