Nearly twenty years ago, Saint Andrew’s Episcopal School started a laptop program that was ahead of its time. Why? For some schools, the proximity to Silicon Valley might be the driving factor for a decision like this—technology for the sake of technology. Not at Saint Andrew’s, a premier PK – 8 school a few miles west of San Jose. Rather, Saint Andrew’s recognized early on that curricular innovation and technology go hand in hand to support educational excellence and student-centered learning.

On July 1, 2018, a new head of school begins at Saint Andrew’s. At that time, the school will be excited to welcome its next director of technology, who will lead the entire technology program: instructional, systems, and IT. With an infrastructure support model that includes internal staff and external contractors already in place, the next director can concentrate primarily on instructional technology initiatives and integration support.

The director of technology sits on the senior administration and education teams, and reports to the head of school
