The Technology Department hosts teams of teachers who help provide training and support on the various software and hardware issues in the district. The teams are for training while computer technicians handle infrastructure, networking, hardware and software installation, and troubleshooting. The teams are the Technology Training Team and the SuccessMaker/Typing Pal Training Team.
The Technology Training Team will meet as needed to receive training on new technology the district is implementing, which in turn, they will train building staff. In addition, the Tech Training Team may serve on their buildings’ technology committees, to help with individual schools’ technology plans and the buildings’ technology budget spending.
In addition to the administrative members, the team is comprised of teachers and Media Specialists; each elementary building and Paris Gibson Education Center has one member, middle schools have two members, and high schools have three members. ?The members are appointed by the building-level principal(s) or district office supervisors and superintendents.
The Technology Training Team may be asked to advise the district on technology needs, issues, and district-wide initiatives. The members are encouraged to teach technology PIR courses and recommend topics for future trainings.
The SuccessMaker/Typing Pal Training Team meets on an annual and as-needed basis and support elementary building staff with the implementation of these two programs. The members are appointed by the building-level principal(s) or district office supervisors and superintendents.
