The recent appointment of Jason Ramsden, Chief Information Officer of Ravenscroft School in Raleigh, NC, as Executive Board President of The Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) signals a new era for the nonprofit start-up now serving the technology professionals who remain at the forefront of change in education. “Our career focus is on being agents of change,” said new ATLIS Board President Jason Ramsden, “and ATLIS is such an important organization for our members because it provides the information they need to perform at the highest levels, connects them through meaningful professional development opportunities, and gives them the tools they need to be reflective and intentional in their work.”

Ramsden, who assumed his position in July 2017, brings vast experience to the ATLIS Executive Board, most notably as the director of several educational technology change initiatives in independent schools since 1997. A recognized leader in the independent school community, Ramsden has been a key voice on the Innovation and 21st Century Curriculum/Technology task forces of NAIS, the National Association of Independent Schools.

Ramsden was instrumental in establishing and growing the North Carolina Association of Independent School’s annual technology conference between 2006 and 2011. He has also served on numerous accrediting teams for the Southern Association of Independent Schools and founded the TAIS (Triangle Area Independent School) Technology Directors Association in 2005. As a featured speaker at the Association of Delaware Valley Independent Schools inaugural TechedADVIS event in 2015, Ramsden shared his philosophy of “Lead with Why: How EdTech Leaders Can Inspire Change,” emphasizing the importance of the edtech role in independent schools.

Prior to his appointment to Ravenscroft in the Fall of 2006, Ramsden served as Technology Manager at The Hill Center in Durham, NC (2003 – 2006), Network Administrator & Technical Support Manager at Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich, Connecticut (1999 – 2003), Director of Technology at Trinity-Pawling School in Pawling, New York (1997-1999), and other administrative roles in independent schools from 1991 to 1996.

Founded in 2015, the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) has evolved from a spark in the California independent school edtech network into a vital force on the national education landscape. With a Board now stewarded by Ramsden, ATLIS will focus on furthering its mission, which stresses that “Technology leaders make the best decisions when they are reflective, informed, and connected. ATLIS empowers its members to develop strategies, build relationships, and share best practices in technology and innovation for independent schools.”
