Forest Hills Public Schools also has a team of technology personnel that serve all buildings and campuses in the district. We offer tiered support services with district technology assistants serving as the first responders for assistance and support. There are also teachers in each building who serve as mentors to their colleagues by providing technical assistance and instructional leadership through their examples of technology-enhanced curriculum. Each school administrator has been trained in a variety of technology applications as well. The district has added a web-based cross-platform help desk solution to improve technical customer service and support response times. In addition, we have been able to integrate our district technology assets directly into the help desk system providing efficient inventory management.
