Marlo Gaddis – Wake County Public School System

There are times when hope for a better tomorrow seems to abound as Marlo Gaddis observes what even the youngest students can create with technology in the public schools of Wake County in the middle of North Carolina. For example, during this past academic year Gaddis, the district’s interim chief technology officer since November, watched […]

Thomas Bunton – University of Arkansas at Little Rock

When the 12,000 students who attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) returned to school this August, the buildings and classrooms were largely unchanged, save for a few, mostly minor renovations. The window-laden Student Services Center still shimmered in the sun, while across the street people sauntered and splayed around the leafy park—just […]

Steven R. Ferguson – Technical College System of Georgia

A man who acknowledges he bores easily wouldn’t seem likely to stay with the same employer for 17 years, but Steven R. Ferguson has never lacked for motivation in the many info-tech roles he has held at the Technical College System of Georgia. “It’s an ever-changing field,” the energetic and engaging Ferguson tells Toggle while […]

Peter Santos – Providence Public Schools

They call him “Positive Pete,” a name befitting a lovable cartoon character or a super hero—and in some ways you could say he is. Peter Santos has earned the nickname with his welcoming and upbeat leadership style, as well as his flexibility and dedication to finding solutions to the toughest problems. “I take a positive […]

Bobby Applegate – Cucamonga School District

The rewards—the tangible ones—might be greater in the private sector,  where Bobby Applegate applied his info-tech expertise before circumstances had him, and so many of his colleagues, looking elsewhere for much of 2011. For their long-time employer, Word & Brown Insurance Administrators Inc. in Orange, California, was undergoing a shakeup and had cut the IT […]

Jake Hornsby – Cal State East Bay

By any ethnic or socio-economic standard, California State University East Bay is among the most diverse campuses anywhere. The most in the Golden State, at least in 2015, according to The Chronicles of Higher Education’s Almanac. That’s as much a source of pride as it is a challenge, reminds Chief Information Officer Jake Hornsby, who […]

Frankie J. Jackson – Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District

Five years after Frankie J. Jackson set out to make Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District an IT exemplar in the Lone Star State, it might not quite be appropriate to say mission accomplished. That’s never the case when the ever-evolving matter of education is concerned. But Cypress-Fairbanks, the third largest Texas school district, indeed continues to […]

Jim Culbert – Duval County Public Schools

Budgets permitting, adopting a 1:1 policy seems like a no-brainer. Not only do such measures improve classroom engagement; they can have a democratizing effect by assuring that students from disparate socioeconomic backgrounds have the same personal devices as their classmates. There are caveats, of course. Laptops get lost. They break. Some might even be stolen. […]

Robert Bayard – Clear Creek Independent School District

Sometimes all it takes is one pesky squirrel. No, really—Clear Creek Independent School District has had entire networks taken out as a result of the relentlessly gnawing varmints. But it’s not just rodents that can be perilous: It could be a storm, a construction project, a fender bender—anything. “All it takes is one line being […]

Rod Houpe – Cleveland Metropolitan School District

On-time and under budget—what’s that, you say? It’s a concept that can be rare in the private sector; even more so in the public realm. And ultimately, it’s just one of the ways Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) is differentiating itself when it comes to IT. Under the direction of CIO Rod Houpe, the Ohio […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
