 Office of Information Technology


Welcome to the Office of Information Technology.  Our department is responsible for all major technology initiatives throughout the Youngstown City School District.  There are 3 separate areas of this office.

Network Services.  This includes the purchase, installation, and support of all desktop, laptop, tablet, and other student devices, as well as printers and servers.  In all, over 10,000 devices are managed and supported through our department.  

Technology Integration.  This department is responsible for working directly with teachers on the adoption and integration of technology in the classroom.  Everything from Google Classroom to Promethium Boards to projectors to assessment is fair game!

Data Department.  This area includes the support for our Student Information System, Teacher Gradebook, and the processing of student records, including report cards, interim reports, weekly BAG reports, and student transcripts.  

Think-Cell.  Think-Cell is an add-in for Microsoft Office that enhances chart creation in PowerPoint and Excel. Even complex charts, such as Marimekkos, waterfalls and Gantts, can be created within minutes. think-cell can also be used to maintain a presentation's structure with auto-updating agendas, and to consistently round numbers in Excel sheets. The Information Technology department and think-cell have made the software available to YCSD faculty, staff, and students for academic and non-profit use.
