My name is Lenny Schad, I am the former CIO for Houston ISD and currently, I am the Chief Information & Innovation Officer for District Administration. In my new role, I have created a CIO Academy tailored specifically for technology leaders and their management teams in the K-12 space.

I know your time is valuable and as such the Academy I have designed will provide practical strategies and action items necessary to successfully navigate the changing role world of K-12 technology.   

The academy is two 2-½ day deep dives into what it takes to successfully lead a technology department. The first 2-½ days will be April 2-4, in Long Beach, Calif., and will focus on the leadership skills necessary to guide, innovate, influence and manage the K-12 Digital Transformation.

The second 2-½ days will be May 7-9 also in Long Beach and a few of the topics we will discuss include data privacy, cybersecurity, infrastructure readiness, project and employee management.  

I’m hoping you will consider attending and networking with fellow technology leaders from San Antonio, Shelby County, Santa Fe, and Spring ISD to name a few.  It will be a great opportunity for deep professional leadership development specifically tailored for K-12 Technology departments. 

Don’t our word for it, here is what a 2019 attendee had to say:

I hope you see you or members of your team in Long Beach!!
