Thad Lutgens – LPR Construction

To the untrained eye, the twin steel towers reaching high above the tree line just south of I-565 in Huntsville, Alabama, could be just about anything: the skeleton of an office high-rise, perhaps, or a state-of-the-art energy facility. But it’s in the precision of its construction that the nature of this 221-foot-tall behemoth becomes apparent. […]

Joe Amato – Hernando County School District

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In Florida, end-of-year grades can be just as nerve-wracking for schools as they are for the students. Each spring, districts throughout the state are given an accountability report, complete with letter grades for every school. Available to the public, these reports can make or break a system’s reputation—and future funding. So when Joe Amato arrived […]

Serena Sacks – Fulton County School District

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As her teacher conducts the day’s lesson, a student sits in rapt attention, brand new tablet in hand. Hearing a question she knows the answer to, the student’s hand darts up, eliciting the teacher’s go-ahead. When the hour runs out, it’s on to the next class. Only, she won’t be walking down the high school […]

Ken Brown – Frontline Education

EBay, Equifax, JPMorgan Chase: all have suffered massive data breaches, resulting in millions of stolen records—and identities. Among such giants, health care and finance companies have become particularly vulnerable, with data and dollars being compromised by evermore sophisticated hackers. For the typical school district technology leaders, such ills might feel a world away. After all, […]

Tom DeChiaro – Drexel University

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Admittedly, Tom DeChiaro leapt into a favorable situation in early 2016, becoming chief information officer and vice president at Drexel University and its then dotted line College of Medicine relationship, after distinguishing himself in two prior roles in academia and the private sector. Entrusted with the continuous fine-tuning of Drexel’s infotech—a vital component in the […]

Rishma Khimji – City of Reno

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Every business owner dreads the permitting process. Depending on the space’s size and location, dozens of documents and licenses might be required. Fire safety, air and water pollution control, sales tax paperwork, health department checks: It’s enough red tape to mummify the building (that’s a code violation, by the way). In Reno, Nevada, all you […]

Aleta Jeffress – Aurora, Colorado

Est. reading time: 5 mins

It’s among the most desirable cities anywhere, mile-high Aurora, Colorado, at least for the financially secure and gainfully employed. But the long winters can make it very inhospitable for the homeless. And that’s when the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires a Point-in-Time tally of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons. The count must […]

David Bessen – Arapahoe County

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For years, residents of Colorado’s Arapahoe County who were eligible for subsidies, including food stamps and shelter assistance, would have to wait a week or more before their benefit application was processed. During the Great Recession, in particular, when need spiked and the old systems were taxed, those lag times could prove the difference between […]

Dennis Frye – Alamance-Burlington School System

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In most school districts, in order for any new technology plan to achieve true success, the student experience—what they learn in the classroom and how they’re taught to engage with the world beyond—must be paramount. At its core, the initiative being undertaken at North Carolina’s Alamance-Burlington School System (ABSS) is really no different. The approach, […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
