At Walla Walla Public Schools, we're passionate about identifying and utilizing the latest technology to make learning more engaging for our students, providing valuable support to our educators, and simplifying administrative tasks. I'm privileged to lead a team of dedicated professionals deeply invested in keeping our district ahead of the curve in educational innovation. Our department plays a pivotal role in advancing the mission of the Walla Walla Public Schools by providing robust technological infrastructure, comprehensive support services, and innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of our educational community.

Here are some key areas where our team excels:

Technology Integration: We work closely with teachers and administrators to seamlessly integrate technology into the curriculum, fostering digital literacy and preparing students for success in an increasingly connected world.

Infrastructure Management: From network infrastructure to hardware and software systems, we maintain and optimize our district's technological backbone to ensure reliability, security, and scalability.

Support Services: Our dedicated support team is available to assist students, teachers, and staff with technical issues, troubleshooting, and training, ensuring that technology enhances rather than hinders the educational process.

Data Management and Analytics: We collect, analyze, and leverage data to inform decision-making, improve student outcomes, and drive continuous improvement across the district.

Cybersecurity: In an age of increasing cyber threats, we prioritize the security and privacy of our digital assets, implementing robust cybersecurity measures to safeguard sensitive information and protect against potential breaches.

Innovation and Research: We stay abreast of emerging technologies and best practices in educational technology, exploring innovative solutions to enhance teaching and learning and empower our students for success in the 21st century.
