Dr. Robert W. Smiley – The School District of Janesville

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Pens, sheaves of papers, the squeak of chalk across a green board that’s never quite clear of dust—all these are relics of the classroom even before the COVID-19 pandemic led to remote learning. Yet Dr. Robert W. Smiley remembers a time when not a single classroom had internet. In fact, as the technology coordinator for […]

Drew Taylor – Hopkins County School District

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Often when school bus drivers communicate with each other, they speak in code in case their radio channels are intercepted. Doing so helps protect information about students, such as their names and addresses, from being exploited by people who shouldn’t be listening in. Last year, Drew Taylor began exploring a more secure option. After gathering […]

Darlene Clapham – York Catholic District School Board

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Her primary responsibility may be ensuring reliable and secure infotech at a Canadian school district, but Darlene Clapham isn’t one to silo herself in education. IT being such an evolving subject, she’s always looking for new insight while sharing her own. “I’ve always had this philosophy that if you want to learn about other industries, […]

Dr. Simeon Ananou – University of Vermont

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated as president in 1933, he moved a legislative agenda through Congress to fight the Great Depression. He was so successful that the first 100 days of any presidential term are now a measurement of success. Dr. Simeon Ananou took FDR’s tack at the University of Vermont when he became […]

It’s been a long time coming, but students in Oregon’s Portland Public Schools—particularly those in the Northeast Albina District—will finally get the technology they deserve, thanks to the passage of the largest capital bond in the state’s history last November.

La […]

David Hasbany – Salem School District

Est. reading time: 5 mins

During an IT career that began in the last years of the Reagan presidency, and took him from city hall to prestigious prep schools that educated future presidents, there’s little that David Hasbany hasn’t helped automate or improve. Whether it’s storing municipal tax records once relegated to dusty file cabinets or building the digital network […]

Behold the panda, sometimes known as the giant panda, in its natural habitat. Living mainly in temperate forests in southwest China, the black and white bear subsists almost entirely on a diet of bamboo. Adult pandas may consume as much as 84 pounds of bamboo daily, as females grow to 200 pounds and males to […]

Devin Holzer – Pleasant Valley School District

Est. reading time: 5 mins

No one will ever hear Devin Holzer clank down a hallway in a suit of steel so heavy it crushes the floor tiles under his feet. Nor will anyone see him suddenly shift his shape into an armored vehicle laden with weaponry for a never-ending fight against evil. Yet no matter how softly the district […]

When coach Marty Moyer’s barn burned to the ground, his wrestling team and a legion of his Indiana neighbors rushed to his aid to rebuild the structure as quickly as possible, working many hours without complaint. In times like these, it’s nice to know people and places like this still exist, says David Wolford, the […]

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.
