Hard HatsSurvey: The Technology Department's Role in Capital Improvement Projects

The Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools and its members have long held that involving technology leaders early and often in construction, reconstruction, and enhancement efforts at schools will result in better outcomes for the project as a whole—reducing errors, anticipating needs, and resulting in a better outcome. ATLIS is pleased to announce first-of-its-kind research designed to benchmark the technology department’s role in capital improvements and highlight trends and best practices in this realm. 

We often hear at our events and as we interact with technology leaders that independent schools have a “hidden gem” resource in the technology department when it comes to construction projects and facility upgrades. Not only do technology leaders bring valuable insight to the table in terms of optimizing the systems and design of a project, but are skilled in the realm of project management, understand the technology-related needs of the faculty, and know what outside-the-box solutions emerging in the marketplace could be a good fit for their schools’ missions. This survey aims to validate those assumptions and identify other ways that technology professionals can enhance capital improvement projects in schools. 

This survey will likely take about 10 minutes to complete, and ATLIS values your input. The results of the research will be available later this fall to ATLIS members at no charge and for a nominal fee to non-ATLIS members.
