Pam Jameson - take a bow
Pam Jameson came through like a champ and provided progress reports as the behest of a guardian pursuant to a legal mandate that we provide within 8 days. Huge fist bump to Pam!

2016 Mission Statement
During the 12-13 school year upon my arrival, IT Services Leadership worked to create the mission:
Ensure reliable access to beneficial resources and relevant technology to prepare students for school, work, and life.
Since the announcement of the Great Commitment, IT Leadership/Governance has engaged in a series of team building and mission alignment activities.
*Provide an infrastructure of products, systems, and services that supports district initiatives and expands the learning environment for students and teachers.*
With the new mission statement, most everything we do can be 'black lined' back to a product, system, or service. Our primary constraint will be funding and personnel. With those two items, we can do most anything. We will strive to accomplish the mission despite the lack of resources through innovation, offloading, and creativity.
