ECS to have technology audit performed

By Kelsey Kimbler -

EATON — Eaton Community Schools Superintendent Jeff Parker, Assistant Superintendent Missanne Imhoff, and Treasurer Rachel Tait recently met with DataServ to discuss an upcoming technology audit.

Superintendent Parker reported on the audit during the board meeting on Monday, Jan. 14.

For the past 20 years, DataServ has been partnered with SWOCA Information Technology Center. Not only has DataServ met with the above mentioned group, but has conducted individual interviews with various administrative staff.

“We want to identify how we can maximize our technology and our technology systems district wide. Not just technology integration within student learning, but within our personnel, networks, practices, and that sort of thing. We really want to find out what we are doing well and what we need to improve upon. Our vision is, how can we maximize technology integration within education,” Parker said.

“That does not necessarily mean that our students have a piece of technology in front of them 24/7, that is not what that means, but how can we maximize what is out there in the curriculum with instruction and how we can help teachers utilize that. [DataServ] is going to help us with that and also some of our other technology.”

They will be looking at the phone system, wireless system, and security.

Parker added, this is the beginning of the audit process, which will take 60 days. He is hoping to have a representative from the company at the March board meeting to share results from the audit.
