IT Crisis Preparedness

Technology programs have grown to touch almost every aspect of activities in modern-day schools, including teaching and learning, data-tracking and record-keeping, internal and external communications, and more. Events in our country such as Hurricane Harvey have illustrated the need for school technology leaders to be actively involved in crisis preparedness to protect school building infrastructures and preserve system-wide networks. Disaster planning is an ongoing process that requires detailed preparation prior to an event and during the recovery phase. CoSN helps district technology leaders identify best practices and develop strategies for shutting down and starting up critical services.
