Officials say position will be go-to contact for students, teachers

Realizing that technology is a driving force in education today, the Northern Ozaukee School Board approved a staff reorganization this week that underscores that priority.

The board approved reassigning second-grade teacher Lori Marini to become the technology learning coach during afternoons for the remainder of the school year.

The coaching duties will become Marini’s full-time responsibilities for the 2015-16 school year.

Current part-time teacher Sarah Gundert will be elevated to full-time status and become the second-grade teacher when Marini is away from the classroom.

Gundert is already familiar with the students in Marini’s class, so officials anticipate an easy transition.

The changes will go into effect when the second semester starts in January. The added hours and benefits will cost $18,700.

“In all, this expenditure will give us a great opportunity to provide more technology help in the buildings while establishing a process called ‘coaching cycles,’ whereby educators, in collaboration with their students, will work with Mrs. Marini to look at their goals and data,” Supt. Blake Peuse said.

The change reflects a heightened district awareness of the importance of technology.

The district hired consultant Linda Borkenhagen on a part-time basis earlier in the year to coordinate its technology efforts.

After months of discussions, district administrators and Borkenhagen agreed a greater emphasis should be given to technology training.

“We were all in agreement that our focus on technology needs to be deeply rooted in the educational aspect of our processes at NOSD,” Peuse said.
