Slowly, stumbling, I'm learning more about SchoolNet, IMPACT, Chancery, and -- most recently Bob Runcie, the CPS Chief Information Officer, who's either going to bring CPS computer systems into the 21st century or get tagged with the blame for everything falling apart.
Whether you think you care about student information systems and
computers or not, this might be worth knowing about, said one reader in
a comment: "As a building principal, I just hope that when this all
there is another cover story somewhere. I am losing positions, and they
are spending 40 million dollars on something we do not have the
bandwidth to support."
The story being referred to is a brief Q&A with Runcie in the Scholastic Administrator (Newsmaker: Q&A with Robert Runcie: Syncing Second City Schools).
