Another Year in the Books

..... Pun intended. It's hard to believe another school year has flown by. It has been another year of great accomplishments for the ICTS department. This year included:

  • Delayed – but grand – opening of the King & Putnam Ave. Upper Schools. With much hard work by many ICTS staff, the building successfully opened with state of the art classroom technology, wireless infrastructure, new staff & student devices, and a wonderful new Learning Commons and "iLab." 
  • A new district-wide assessment platform known as School City Stars.
  • Doc Star document management system
  • Educators Handbook
  • New backup and disaster recovery system
  • Backend nearly 100% virtualized

Ongoing projects include: new transportation management system with follow that bus and student ridership functionality, facilities management system, and conversion to Destiny for the library circulation system. 

An ICTS newsletter would not be complete if I didn't mention our student data privacy efforts. CPS is leading the work of the National Student Data Privacy Consortium. Our practices and procedures are being used as a model for schools across the country to ensure student data is protected. Everyone throughout the district has a vital role in ensuring all student data is kept private, and I thank you all for understanding the importance of this issue. 

Have a great summer!
