The Technology Advisory Committee (TAC), comprised of District leadership and Board appointed industry technology experts, serves as an advisory committee to the Board. The committee is governed by School Board Policies 1.09 and 1.096. The mission of the TAC is to provide expert knowledge, guidance, and to bring industry best practices to decisions regarding technology infrastructure and strategy. The committee’s responsibility is to gain an understanding of the technology across the School District including the schools. Additionally, TAC reviews and provides feedback on technology contracts for hardware, software, consultants, and training.
This committee, consisting of Assistant Superintendents, Chiefs, and Principals from the Academic and Business segments including IT meets every two weeks to review all new technology requests prior to purchase. The TCC review is to assure alignment with the District’s mission and goals by examining the product from two distinct perspectives: function and technology. The academic and business representatives make certain the proposed technology serves the function intended without duplication and IT determines the technical aspects for integration, compatibility, scalability, support requirements, bandwidth, total cost of ownership (TCO), training and support.
The primary purpose of the Forms Review Committee is to ensure that the District is in compliance with Florida Statute 1008.385 (2)(b)1 and Board Policy 2.341. The objective of the program and the committee is to monitor the creation, design, production, printing, distribution, and collection of all forms used throughout the School District. The primary function of the Forms Review Committee is to review and approve each new and revised form with the underlying objective to reduce and consolidate as much as possible the total number of paper forms used throughout the School District.
