Happy IT Professionals Day to our USD 480 Technology Department! They manage over 7,500 devices throughout the school year and summer. In an increasingly digital world, this department does so much to keep USD 480 ahead of the curve and our students are in a better position because of them. They have streamlined the Chromebook check in and check out processes for our students. They recently installed and now manage over 500 IFPs throughout the district. Their patience and expertise cannot be overstated. We are just so grateful for all the things they do for our staff and students. Join us in celebrating the USD 480 Technology Department!
