Area II Technology Summit Welcome All of the “Techs” in the Districts and Schools are facing the same issues. How you deal with these issues is based on the size of the district and schools, amount of money that is available to be thrown at the issues, and how many are on the tech staff. We hope that this will give you an opportunity to network with and get contacts of your fellow “Techs” and see how they are solving these issues. We hope to provide a smorgasbord of information. Not everyone may need information on every topic but everyone should be able to get some information they need.

Agenda 10:00 am – Welcome, introductions and start meeting 10:45 am – Special Guests – Hacking what your students already know 11:30 am – Break and Fix lunch plates / Working lunch 12:00pm – continue with meeting 2:00pm – End meeting
Why this Meeting This meeting was created so that you can make contacts with your peers and see how they are addressing and solving tech issues that are effecting all of you techs. Because you have the expertise this may be a little different than most meetings in that I hope to provide a lot of topics that will create the discussions and not dictate how things should be done. Also please keep notes on what topics you would like to have an expanded discussion on, so that we may set up more meetings to address more specific items. I also hope that during the discussions each of you are able to get answers about how to address an issue that you have questions on. I also hope that you are able to find contacts with techs that are in the same size district or school. Let’s All Learn From Each Other LTC Area II 4 Areas (North, South, East, and West) 18 Counties, 171 Districts, 601 Schools
5 Areas of Topics 1) “State Mandates” ( Possible consolidation of the DIP/SIP/TIP, archival and retrieval and Internet Safety Curriculum, Technology proficiency) 2) Protecting Networks from Internal or External Attacks (Hacking techniques that your students know, Network intrusion, Viruses, Proxy Sites) 3) Equipment (routers, firewalls, projectors, “smartboards” new educational software equipment “websites”, Open source Software) 4) Vendors (who are your techs favorite vendors based on price and service – and bad experience with vendors) 5) Tech Support (favorite tech sites) and Tech Training
State Mandates Possible consolidation of the DIP/SIP/TIP Phil – to expand on
State Mandates Archival and Retrieval ISSRA (Illinois School Student Records Act) 105 ILCS 10/1 set seq.) it requires a school to maintain a student's permanent record for 60 years (105 ILCS 10/4(e) and student's temporary records for 5 years (105 ILCS 10/4(f)). Two schools of thought – 1) Backup everything 2) Only backup what’s required for student records as per Illinois School Students Record Act Policy should be established by your Administrators and Legal Team Have a policy in place and follow it to the best of your ability. - Due diligence Students Permanent Records -- Who is taking responsibility for these via
