2022 NYSCATE CoSN CTO Clinic

8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Marriott Albany 189 Wolf Rd. Albany, NY 12205

NYSCATE and CoSN will be hosting a CTO Clinic on May 25, 2022, in Albany, NY for all technology leaders. The topic of the day's event will be "Balancing the Quickly Evolved Role of the District Technology Leader". The past few years have changed the impact that technology leaders, like Superintendents, District Administrators, Principals, CTOs, IT Directors, Network Admins, etc., have had in their schools, districts, and communities. We want to use this time to learn from our peers on practices that you've enabled to help advance teaching and learning with technology during the last few years.


We will be utilizing CoSN's Framework of Essential Skills for K-12 CTOs to share how we have all been adapting to meet the needs of our schools and districts. The Framework is comprised of three primary professional categories in the education technology field (Leadership & Vision, Understanding the Educational Environment, and Managing Technology and Support Resources). Topics for the CTO clinic will include discussion and learning about these 10 essential skill areas, outlining the responsibilities and knowledge needed to be a viable educational technology leader.

  • Leadership & Vision

  • Strategic Planning

  • Ethics & Policies

  • Instructional Focus & Professional Development

  • Team Building & Staffing

  • Information Technology Management

  • Communication Systems Management

  • Business Management

  • Data Management

  • Data Privacy and Security

We will have a keynote presentation from state and national edtech leaders, concurrent presentations on key topics related to the Framework, and vendor exhibits/presentations to enhance your learning and provide you with valuable networking time with your peers and company representatives.

The cost for the CTO Clinic is $99 per person. Institutional member districts that are members in both CoSN and NYSCATE are eligible for one complimentary registration as a part of your district membership in CoSN and NYSCATE. If you have any questions about your membership, please contact Sean McDonough, NYSCATE Corporate & Member Engagement Coordinator, to confirm your membership.
