CoSN provides school district technology leaders with the resources to develop, implement, and maintain their IT infrastructure to enable digital learning. School districts need to focus on IT management to ensure that their networks are secure and have the capacities to support transformative technology. District technology leaders are also responsible for thinking about the costs and values of implementing technology plans.
High-stakes online assessments are on their way! Districts nationwide have been faced with new challenges as the Common Core State Standards and other assessments are launched.

Advances in technology make it possible for students to learn anytime and anywhere and experience personalized and individualized learning. These advances can only take place if school systems have networks in place that support the new and dynamic context of learning, but designing those networks requires a high level of technical sophistication. CoSN will help you address the challenges of design by providing the knowledge you need to wisely invest in educational networks for today and tomorrow.
CoSN’s SmartIT initiative reflects the ongoing priority for technology leaders to strategically plan and manage IT investments. We offer tools and resources that contribute to effectively handling your shrinking budget without sacrificing instructional quality.
