Maintaining Quality IT Support in a Difficult K12 Hiring Environment
Given the difficulty of finding, hiring and retaining quality IT talent in today's competitive environment, how can school districts maintain quality support for the systems used daily by teachers, staff and students? This session will discuss a variety of ways to keep staff and teachers focused on the work of teaching tomorrow's leaders, rather than focusing on basic IT functions. Participants will be able to identify ways to remove basic IT tasks from staff, so they can focus on work supporting the strategic aims of the school district.

Streamlining the Student Growth Objectives Process with an Integrated Student Information System
This session will include a discussion of a student growth objectives (SGO) software solution that saves times and reduces paperwork so districts can focus on the hard work of designing quality goals and tracking student data. Participants will learn how the tool permits teachers to enter SGOs on forms modeled after those created by the state. The screens accommodate simple or tiered goals, allow a choice of a scoring plan, and permit districts to manage approval electronically and track changes. SGOs can even be archived into a personal library that is maintained by a supervisor and curated according to district or school goals.
