Outsourced CIO Leadership

C-Suite level EdTech leadership and strategy at a fraction of the cost

All schools deserve the very best leadership in technology, but many smaller schools and districts do not have the payroll to support someone with executive-level experience. Macro Connect has developed a Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) service that provides access to a highly experienced technology leader without the full-time payroll expense. Our vCIOs will meet with your leadership team as needed to provide strategic recommendations about your technology. A Macro Connect vCIO will empower you with tools, ideas, and vision to keep your students and administration ahead of the curve.

Periodic Meetings

Macro Connect vCIOs meet with your leadership team as often as necessary. That might be semi-annually, quarterly, or even monthly, depending on your school’s needs. During your annual planning and budgeting process, we take an active role in guiding your strategy from one year to the next. This ensures continuity throughout the long-term process of developing a great IT infrastructure and technology support system.

Strategic Leadership

Our expert vCIOs provide an expert voice to your strategic planning sessions and budgeting process. Having worked with many schools and districts, each vCIO brings a wide range of practical experience that can offer your team best-practice ideas that have proven effectiveness. When you involve a Macro Connect vCIO in your leadership team, you get all of the knowledge of a high-level IT executive without all of the cost.

Macro Connect’s vCIO program comes in two tiers depending on the size of your school or district and the level of support you desire.
