This time of year lends itself to reflection. As I reflect back upon the past year, I am humbled by what our team has accomplished. I am also driven to continue the work we have begun. I would like to publicly acknowledge that we have gotten to where we are by standing on the shoulders of Jordan School District. They have set the bar for what Information Technology can be in public education.
I would also like to acknowledge that we are not yet at the point that I would like us to be. When I started a year ago, I identified 47 key systems that we needed get in place. Of those systems, 11 are not yet fully in maintenance mode. We still have some work before we get to the starting blocks. However, I know we will get there.
Once at the starting blocks, we must continue to improve. We are undertaking a number of initiatives that will improve our infrastructure. We are installing a comprehensive wireless solution in all of our secondary schools. We are installing GeoMax gig connectivity in all of our elementary schools. We are also committed to spending as much time as possible in the schools getting to know their individual needs.At this time of year, hope would seem to be one of the greatest gifts. I truly am hopeful and full of wonder at the possibilities and opportunities that face us. I wish everyone Happy Holidays and a very successful New Year!
