Evangelina (Eva) Mendoza has contributed to the growth and success of many large Technology initiatives in three different educational systems. Since 2012, she has been part of the Information Technology department at San Antonio Independent School District and currently serves as the Chief Information Technology Officer. She has developed and led the financial and implementation strategies for the district to maximize funding through Bond, Erate, and Grants to purchase classroom technology in over 3,000 classrooms, upgrade network infrastructure and made a device available for every student. As a current board member of Texas Education Technology Leaders (TETL), the Texas chapter of the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), Eva provides guidance on privacy, security policies, trends, and best practices to districts across the state.
Two of her top priorities are digital inclusion and equity throughout the community. In an effort to provide students connectivity at home, Eva also serves as a member of the Digital Inclusions Alliance of San Antonio (DIASA) and has established strategic partnership with organizations including Bexar County and City of San Antonio to build an LTE network and provide technical support for students and their families. She is a proud alumni of San Antonio ISD and enjoys serving her community by providing access to innovative digital resources.
