Leadership, Support and Service to Prepare All Students for Success

Dr. Nancy Kotowski, County Superintendent of Schools

Service DescriptionTraining and Development Street Signs

This service provides districts with professional development in the area of instructional technology as well as productivity applications. We offer customized and regularly scheduled professional development that can help enhance employee productivity and efficiency. Professional development can be coupled with an additional service such as new device purchasing or software development so that we can offer a solution and ensure employees are prepared to implement it.

What's Included?

This service includes two main areas of focus: regularly scheduled professional development and customized professional development. Regularly scheduled professional development generally occurs on a weekly basis and is open to all district employees for a small fee. It includes topics such as:

  • Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint)
  • Apple iWork Products (Keynote, Pages, iMovie)
  • Google Apps (Documents, Drive, Spreadsheets, Presentations)
  • Adobe Products (Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign)
  • And more!

Our other area of focus is customized professional development. This is training targeted for districts, school sites, or small groups of individuals that have specific needs surrounding a given project or program. We are available to host these trainings at MCOE or travel to your sites for your convenience. Customized sessions are available upon request. Below is a list of just some of the sessions we have done:

  • PowerPoint training to parents in Spanish
  • Paperless classroom transitions via products such as Showbie or Google Classroom
  • Technology skills preparation for Smarter Balanced testing
  • Student and teacher account management in Google Apps for Education
  • Website content creation and editing
  • Shortcuts and helpful tips in Mac OS X
  • Excel management of student data
  • And other topics customized to your needs.

What's Not Included?

Although MCOE-TIS can offer desktop support and infrastructure services to districts, this particular service does not include those offerings. When we are with your staff, we will do our best to make sure that any hardware or software problems they have are redirected to the proper personnel or given possible solutions for moving forward. Because of uncertainty regarding district policies around technology use, we do not provide any additional assistance unless negotiated and agreed upon beforehand.
