As a smaller rural district, Karns City is under pressure to provide similar technology and professional development seen in larger districts.
Following Board approval to outsource technology management with Questeq, Karns City realigned the district’s technology workforce, doubling it in size. The district also added new procedures, including a help desk and ticketing system that gave teachers confidence to use technology in the classroom. Curriculum changes using technology and plans for cross-curricular technology sharing have the district poised to realize its future plan.
A little more than three months after beginning a technology realignment, Karns City is taking major steps to accomplish the future plan set by leadership for the district. Karns City now has the team and is building the infrastructure to realize a vision of better student engagement and anywhere anytime self-paced learning.
