Roadblock #3 – Vendor Interactions

“Why are they doing this to us?” asked on irritated technology director. She was referring, of course, to the plethora of digital textbook adoptions, each of which had a different username and password convention. Like others across Texas, I found myself spending precious hours trying to get the right username and password combination setup for students and staff at campuses in my district. 

For smaller districts, the challenge is no different than large districts–inconsistency, no voice or way of making displeasure known. TEC-SIG has, in the past, risen up to sound the alarm when inefficient practices and/or policies are imposed. 

As a TEC-SIG Officer, I offer to advocate on behalf of both large and small districts. My experiences as a director in both urban, as well as rural districts, enable me to empathize and represent your needs.


Detour – Serve as the voice of school districts suffering beneath the yoke of poorly thought out account management and identity management for digital textbooks.
