We have an immediate opening for a School IT Specialist. Unlike many other schools, we are an intentionally no-tech school for our grammar school students and intentionally low/minimal-tech even with our upper school students.  This means that unlike most school IT specialists, we do NOT have a 1:1 Chromebook or iPad program to maintain and explain, and classroom technology that has become very common in recent years, especially during COVID, is NOT a regular part of our student experience.


That said, the faculty and the administration have more IT support needs for the various academic and administrative software they use to teach and operate the School. Therefore, the role of the School IT Specialist is to support all the back-end school IT needs—helping to keep daily operations running smoothly and seamlessly via technology, managing online security and safety, set-up of new laptops/computers for faculty/staff, day to day troubleshooting for our faculty, staff, and occasionally students as needed, and coordinating the launch of new technologies as various departments adopt them. We would prefer that our School IT Specialist would also have the skills to help manage both classroom and event audio-visual needs.


Successful candidates will wholeheartedly agree with the School’s Statement of Faith, Mission, and Vision, and will serve as a positive influence within the culture and community of the School. In addition to having prior IT experience in school/academic settings, ideal candidates will be an excellent team player, a big-picture thinker/problem solver, and systems-oriented as we are a growing school.
