Technology Services Department

Tech Services Dept


The Technology Services Department oversees a variety of services, including network and server management, support and troubleshooting, audio/visual installation, and educational technology.  Our team is located at the district Operational Services Center (OPS Center): 

As of November 28, 2016, Data Services has moved to the District Office and is a part of the Office of Assessment and Accountability.


The Technology Services Department is responsible for the day to day operations of our district network.  We use the TechDesk system to have work orders generated by staff at each site.  

District wide and network related assistance:

Our staff of Technology Support Specialists serve all sites and departments in the district.  These specialists are split into three groups, each responding to work orders to a range of sites in ‘Zone 1,’ ‘Zone 2,’ or ‘Zone 3.’  Midway through the year, the teams will switch zones to support a new set of sites.  This model of support allows us to be flexible with deploying personnel and helps build district-wide support capacity with our staff.
