Thanks For Your Service

Dr. Kimball! I really thought you'd be here forever, as you are an institution and a legend. We will truly miss you......your knowledge, your wisdom, your insight, and your uncanny Nostradamus-like prediction ability.


Nothing I can say will ever convey the amount of gratitude I owe to you for everything you've done. You've been an incredible mentor and I thank you beyond measure.


With your last Monday Memo, here is to the venerable George Kimball!

Thanks to Network and Client Services

Our incredibly awesome and reliable generator (yes, that's sarcasm) failed to engage over Thanksgiving weekend during the ice storm.


Doug King - First responder to see if we even had electricity. He reported the outage to OG&E.


Thao Nguyen - Spent 3.5 hours here on Sunday getting the network up and running.


Randy Hood and Clint Cobb - getting servers rebooted and email functions restored.


Network Team - making site visits to reboot routers and switches


Client Team - making site visits to reboot printers and restore services.

Thanks to All For + Attitudes

I know we're shellshocked with all the changes. Thanks for taking it in stride. There is new strategic alignment with the reorganization. It is the belief that we are in the best placement in order to accomplish the goals of the Great Commitment. We have new marching orders. Let's move forward for kids.


Even though some of you are no longer under the IT Services umbrella, I think it's important that I keep you on the Monday Memo list so that you are aware of our initiatives and challenges.

Events

IT Governance Committee

Tuesday, Dec. 8th, 9am

1134 Northwest 8th Street

Oklahoma City, OK

As core IT Leadership may have changed, I think it's uber important that we maintain regular communications. As such, I'm changing the name to IT Governance where the core membership will be maintained, but needed more so because of divisional changes.

Infinite Campus Site Visit

Thursday, Dec. 10th, 9am-4pm

1134 Northwest 8th Street

Oklahoma City, OK

Representatives from Infinite Campus will be here all day on Thursday. They'll meet in the IT Conference Room.

Adapt and Change

If you've never read the book, Who Moved My Cheese, it's a must read. Super easy to read and quite relevant for today's fast moving pace.....even though it was written in 1998


Yes, our cheese was moved. It's vital that you adapt to the change, and quickly, as our students and teachers will depend on it.
