About . . .

The Information Technology or IT Department provides four major functions--data, learning, security, and technology. Each of the four functions is one piece of the puzzle that departmental staff contribute to the district. The most important piece is the learning piece. All other functions contribute in some fashion back to learning. Everything we do is in support of learning--whether we are directly improving learning or we are making a process easier so that someone else may improve learning. 

We help students, teachers, and staff every day. We constantly seek to improve the way we deliver our functions to improve student learning and help teachers and staff do the same.

The department has a depth of talent and a desire to achieve that make us unique. Departmental staff have consistently demonstrated that we are able to achieve anything that is important to the success of the District. Continuous improvement of departmental staff members' skills is a requirement for the department to continue to achieve anything that is important to the success of the District.

We provide the highway infrastructure for data movement within the district, and to the Internet and back.  Data systems maintained include instructional and administrative systems. We transmit and receive data from a variety of sources, including federal, state, and local government; vendors; and publishers.  We have an IT Service Desk for support of the various systems that is accessible through the web (, email (, or phone (462-9493). We maintain data and email for all employees and students, and maintain systems that adhere to the various safety and security standards such as the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA), Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
