Structure

In July 2003, The Lynchburg City Schools created a department of information technology to house all aspects of administrative and instructional technology. The department is overseen by the director of information technology who reports directly to the assistant superintendent for student learning and success. The director is assisted by an executive team that includes the supervisor of support technology, the supervisor of instructional technology, the supervisor of data processing, the network engineer and the assistant network administrator.

The department also includes nine technology technicians who have installation and service duties. A technology clerk oversees the help desk. In addition, two systems and data analysts work with the iSeries and student information system databases and files. The textbook coordinator manages inventory and distribution of school assets. A web designer maintains all Lynchburg City Schools’ websites as well as other duties as assigned by the director.

There are nine instructional technology - data analysis resource teachers (IT DART) assigned to the department. Their primary duties are to assist teachers and students with technology related instruction and to troubleshoot hardware and software issues that arise at the building level.
