Liza Klumpar – Franklin Pierce School District

If you ask Liza Klumpar to describe the impact of Franklin Pierce School District’s (FPSD) 1:1 initiative—aimed at outfitting every student with a personal laptop—prepare for a beaming barrage of numbers: 3,600 student devices in elementary schools by the end of 2018; a total of 7,800 across the district by the end of 2019. Or […]

Keith McIntosh – University of Richmond

Within weeks of arriving at the University of Richmond (UR) in August 2016, when the verdant beauty of the campus still felt new and slightly surreal, a barely unpacked Keith McIntosh faced his first major test: what to do with the school’s aging enterprise resource planning platform (ERP). Some faculty, staff and administrators wanted to […]

Roger Brunelle – Naperville Community Unit School District 203

When Roger Brunelle arrived at Naperville Community Unit School District 203 (NCUSD) in 2010, after a successful run in the private sector, many in the district weren’t sure what to expect. For some, the assumption was that the new CIO would test the waters of change cautiously, one toe at a time. Instead, Brunelle went […]

Jarrod Brogdon – Wiregrass Georgia Technical College

You’re a single parent living in rural Georgia. Like many people in similar circumstances, you’re strapped for cash and a college degree is your ticket out of poverty. But driving an hour or two for classes several times a week? And paying for child care while you make the trips? Out of the question. Never […]

L. Dallas Wooten – Eastern Lancaster County School District

There’s the robust 1:1 initiative, launched with the goal of giving every K-12 student their own personal laptop. Inside the classrooms, new rotational learning models, where students engage in multiple course-related activities, are reinventing the old class period paradigm. All of it backed by a state-of-the-art WAN network. When L. Dallas Wooten surveys the IT […]

Dennis Haynie – Andrews Independent School District

Imagine you’re an archaeologist extracting an artifact that’s been hidden in dirt for millennia. Gently, you brush away the dust. Laboriously, you use precision tools to pry it free, bit by bit. Tenderly you lift it, inspecting it from all angles. But you’re not in the sweltering, dust-choked standard of an archaeological dig site—you’re in […]

Darrell Cheney – Channelview Independent School District

As a kitchen designer, he taught himself to conceptualize spaces based on how the materials would be installed. As a restaurant manager, how to multitask and prioritize. From being a bowling instructor, he learned the importance of communication. So whenever Darrell Cheney finds himself talking to students at Channelview Independent School District’s (CISD) annual Career […]

David Calabrese – Canadian Independent School District

One hundred miles northeast of Amarillo, surrounded by the stark and limitless landscape of the Panhandle, sits the hamlet of Canadian, Texas. With a population shy of 3,000 and a downtown covering four square blocks, you can’t get much further from the big-city bustle of Dallas and Houston (or the big-city tax base). All of […]

Kristen Davis – Barbers Hill Independent School District

Turns out the superintendent knew best back in 2015. For the Barbers Hill Independent School District, about 30 miles east of Houston, needed a new director of technology, and Dr. Greg Poole liked what he saw in Kristen Davis. Not that Davis was in a technological position per se. The former elementary teacher and assistant […]

Brandon Prince – Atlanta Independent School District

On a given afternoon, Brandon Prince and his staff might be out on an athletic field in muddy sneakers setting up a digital tracking system for a track and field meet. On another, you might find them up on ladders installing security cameras or testing electronic door locks. This is in addition to tending to […]

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.
