Carlynton hires IT supervisor


Technology in schools continues to evolve, and Carlynton officials are ready to meet tomorrow’s challenges today.

School board members approved the hiring of the district’s first supervisor of information technology at their meeting March 19. Joshua Jones was unanimously approved by the board to start the 12-month position on or before May 30, pending clearances.

In January, the board eliminated the position of director of technology and created a position that has more duties. The supervisor of information technology will work with all aspects of the district’s technology infrastructure, facilitate telecommunication systems and initiate technology projects. Jones will also provide day-to-day computer support, technology integration and staff development and training. He will work in all three district buildings.

Jones has worked in Ambridge Area School District as a professional employee for five years.

Jones said the school communities of Ambridge and Carlynton are alike.

“The environment is very similar. There is a family presence, and people care about the education of their kids,” Jones said.

More than 20 candidates applied for the position. The job has a salary of $65,000.

“We were looking for someone based on experience and who would be a good fit for our district,” Superintendent Joseph Dimperio. “For me, Joshua has a willingness to tackle any project.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
