manage its daily operations as well as retain data and documents for
various state and federal reporting requirements. Most of these
applications are hosted internally at the two District Datacenters with
the remainder hosted by the vendors. Many of these applications are
integrated with each other to transmit data between them on real-time,
daily, and on-demand basis. Below are brief descriptions of District 203
key applications and their purposes.

the curriculum. To maximize this benefit, Technology Integration
Specialists, who are certified teachers, help their fellow teachers
bring technology into the classroom. They provide one-on-one assistance
to individual teachers, grade level teams and content area teams in
implementing the curriculum.
