LA VERNIA -- Students at all La Vernia Independent School District (ISD) campuses soon will have better access to technology as the district’s board of trustees proposed a large purchase of hardware during an Aug. 7 budget workshop and special board meeting.

Alan Bordelon, director of technology for the district, presented a three-year technology growth plan to the board, which included infrastructure updates and the creation of a new position for the district.

“There is a need for a growth in human infrastructure for the district,” Bordelon said. “While we are handling repairs, maintenance, and new deployments well, a need has been identified for a person whose sole job is to work directly with our teachers in support of their needs. This will allow for our teachers to become trained on our system. The new position is listed as an instructional technology specialist and will serve as someone to teach our teachers on how to use the technology.”

The new employee will be on a 207-day salary and Bordelon is hoping for a professional educator with a background in technology.

“Having someone who is a professional educator would be better for the position, rather than someone who is a technology professional trying to learn how to teach,” Bordelon said. “This person would work with groups of teachers to ensure all get the required training on the system we use.”

Bordelon’s plan did not include any hardware, such as thin clients or iPads, for the students to use at the different campuses.

“I was under the impression that the campuses were going to include it in their respective budgets,” Bordelon said.

Board President Michael Jendrusch and Superintendent Tom Harvey said they wanted to take no chances on the iPads and thin clients being lost in the cracks.

“The board wants this stuff for the kids now,” Harvey said. “Doing rough math, it will cost us about $100,000 to purchase what we need to bring our campuses up to speed, so we can just add it on to your technology plan.”

In addition to Harvey’s proposed change, Jendrusch proposed cutting the proposed plan down to two years.

“There’s no reason we can’t purchase this stuff in two years instead of three,” Jendrusch said.
