Adam Smeets

Indian Prairie School District 204
Chief Technology Officer
Greater Chicago Area
Hello! My name is Adam Smeets I focus on engaging and blending technologies that address organizational/institutional problems. Whether this involves blending coding, integrating existing systems with new technologies and working with and collaboratively leading teams, I find joy in making the pieces fit from the procedural and functional perspectives. I hold a Bachelor degree in English and Secondary Education from Loyola University Chicago, as well as a Masters in Educational Technology and ABD in Educational Leadership from the University of Delaware. I am currently working on my Doctor of Education (EdD) in Curriculum and Instruction from Loyola University Chicago with a dissertation focus of one-to-one technologies and their impact on communications and engagement in the classroom.

As the Chief Technology Officer at Indian Prairie School District in Aurora, IL, I am directly responsible for the technology operations and services for the District. I value the inextricable link between curriculum, technology and education. Among a list of other efforts and engagements, during our first year we migrated District email to Office 365, initiated our SIS replacement effort, implemented new initiatives focusing on security and digital safety and negotiated reductions in contracts to support the replacement cycle of devices to structured replacement cycles. During this time, we also launched a Support Center to unify the support and delivery of services.

We are continuously evaluating the delivery of our services and support efforts around our promise to advance a safe, secure and reliable technology environment. This environment will support exploration through engagement with analytical decision-making tools, creativity resources, and an emphasis on the foundations of digital citizenship, critical thinking and information gathering so that all students achieve their greatest potential.
