This site is dedicated to assisting School Technology Coordinators (STC) in their buildings. The School Technology Coordinator is responsible for managing District technology in schools, including managing the inventory for the school’s computers including the 1:1 student Chromebook program, and managing access for guests to the school’s wifi.
Each school can choose up to 2 STCs. If a school chooses a teacher, adequate release time must be provided that allows the STC to maintain an accurate computer inventory. This is a daily task that requires time each day. Many schools have found success in assigning this role to non-instructional staff.
The STC also serves as the liaison for technology-related communication/training with the Office of Information Technology, which includes Educational Technology. STCs are automatically added to the Tech Announcements List, which is for official tech-related announcements from IT. STCs can opt to join the Tech Talk mailing list, which enables community support amongst all STCs. The STC must be an employee or registered associate of the School District of Philadelphia.
