Technology Dreams Fulfilled
After being selected as a Tech Innovation Showcase Company by the National School Board Association, the K12itc brand was officially introduced to school districts across the entire country. And with significant growth in areas beyond our hometown of Kansas City, K12itc services are now being utilized nation-wide. In a recent article, which ran in the June issue of the American School Board Journal, NSBA Director of Technology Ann Flynn showcases each of the four companies that were selected for the Tech Innovation Showcase. Below is a brief excerpt of the article which highlights K12itc.

It was during a 1998 NSBA site visit in Colorado’s Cherry Creek School District when I first heard the term “mission critical” linked to the robust and reliable operation of a district’s technology infrastructure. The notion made perfect sense if teachers were expected to build their instructional plans around online resources.
Now, two decades later, many districts still struggle to deliver that “mission critical” reliability, resulting in the perfect opportunity for founder and President Brad Sandt to launch K12itc. Recognized as a 2010 “20 to Watch” educator when he served as director of technology for Missouri’s Park Hill School District, Sandt had a dream. He wanted to build a technology model that bundled every aspect of a school’s IT infrastructure, connectivity, and maintenance into one efficient package. K12itc is helping more than 450 districts across the nation find efficiencies in technology to save money and provide better service. As a company that only serves K-12 clients, it focuses on the technology so customers are freed to focus on education.
