Yearly Goals for Our Chief Technology Officer

2019-2020 Annual Goals
Each year, the LCUSD Leadership Team sets goals under the direction of the Superintendent. These goals connect to the Local Control Accountability Plan, Superintendent goals, and the newly adopted Technology Plan. 
  1. Teaching, Learning, and Assessment: Implement the teaching, learning, and assessment goals outlined in the LCUSD technology plan and LCAP goal 2 including revising the digital citizenship lessons to include social/emotional learning components; offering professional development related to teaching, learning and assessment technology tools; and supporting the Challenge Success SPACE framework for problem-based learning, climate of care, and authentic assessments. 

Connection to LCAP: Goal 1,2,3


  1. Infrastructure: Lead the implementation of the technology elements within the facilities master plan and Measure LCF, directly focusing on both series one projects and planning for future issuances.  Initial projects will include the development of the classroom and technology standards for the Palm Crest Modernization, completing the district office upgrade to a 10Gb backbone, and redesigning the network architecture for LCHS. Work will also be done in support of summer 2020 projects. Progress reports will be shared at board meetings, technology oversight committee meetings, and communicated to general staff. Participation in program manager meetings and other modernization/project meetings will occur. Also, support the Big Dig project through air monitoring installation efforts.


Connection to LCAP: Goal 2, 4


  1. Safety and Security: Lead efforts in the planning and implementation of safety and security tasks directly related to technology systems as outlined in the Governing Board Safety, Security, and Wellness Task Force priorities list and associated current and upcoming construction projects in Measure LCF. Priorities include specific series 1 projects: studying the implementation of the elementary fencing project and single point of entry protocols along with visitor management, implementation of Catapult, support the planning of safety and security standards for all sites, and policy development for lockdown at LCHS in connection to the access control system, development of a district safety plan, and coordinate with the Director of Programs and Services for the development of site safety plans. The access control project will need planning on system ownership and maintenance. Also, prepare board updates on the progress of the safety and security efforts, engage in norming practices with districts in state, and coordinate efforts with neighboring districts.  Lastly, work with architects and Measure LCF program manager when planning future projects. 

Connection to LCAP: Goal 4


  1. Leadership and Community: Lead efforts to build partnerships and teams to strengthen the learning experiences for students, staff, and families. Beginning with communication and outreach, ensure the successful transition to Aeries Communication platform through continued training for staff, students, and parents; along with monitor and measure website usage and activity to ensure current and correct content is available. Next, develop the next group of student leaders and introduce student voice in terms of technology planning through a student tech council for LCHS with officers supporting outreach for 4th-8th graders. Lastly, continue to grow the partnerships within LCUSD departments like HR and Special Education, as well as neighboring districts.
