Technology Leadership

“Technology doesn’t change schools. Rather, it creates a context in which schools must change or face irrelevance.”

  1. What would learning look like if all students had universal access to high-quality, well-managed digital learning tools?
  2. How can a school with a limited budget support its 1:1 initiative or its technology infrastructure with high-quality IT professionals?

We believe that modern technology tools can empower students to create, consume, and communicate information in powerful ways, but when technical problems get in the way and are not resolved quickly, teachers, students, and learning ultimately suffer. We can provide top quality  school IT support so that students and teachers can leverage technology’s potential for learning.

Schools need to focus on teaching and learning. Outsourcing all or part of your school IT support staff is one way to free up precious internal resources to tasks to focus more directly on your mission.

Our team will arrive on site and complete a comprehensive audit of your school’s network infrastructure. We will identify potential bottlenecks in network traffic and make recommendations for improvements. We will examine student computer equipment and classroom audio-visual hardware. We will make recommendations that will minimize teacher frustration with technical problems. More importantly, as teachers, we will ensure that our recommendations align with your instructional goals and your budget priorities.

We can work with your school IT support staff to re-write job descriptions to ensure that your IT team is using its talents in the most effective way possible. Based on experience of working with dozens of other schools nation-wide we can help clarify individual areas of responsibility to ensure that your IT staff functions as an efficient team.

We will work with your IT director to build a budget and a budgeting process that are sustainable. We will help to determine appropriate life cycles of various types of equipment and build a budget that keeps relevant technology in the hands of students and teachers while avoiding large spikes in expenses every few years.

We can work with your school IT support staff to perform comprehensive security audits. Security in schools needs to work differently than it does in a bank. Schools need to be able to reliably secure student data while maintaining the flexibility and usability of student computing devices. We can help you tread that fine line.

Are you hiring? Many schools feel nervous about hiring for a technical position if they don’t have the in-house expertise. They fear that they don’t know how to judge the quality of candidates. We can assist with a wide range of hiring needs from CIO down to front-line staffing for school IT support. We screen all candidates for technical skills using a rigorous online testing process before we even begin our interviews. We will conduct quality, personal interviews and select only the most qualified candidates. We will then work with you to select the final choice and ensure that she or he is a good match for your school.

We can provide design services for school construction projects including wireless site surveys, classroom audio-visual design, and specialty room designs. We have worked with schools on a wide array of projects giving us the depth of experience to ensure that your next construction project is on the technological cutting edge. Whether you are designing a state of the art STEM facility, a middle school makerspace, or a video production studio, we can help your school realize its IT vision.
