2017 CoSN Volunteer Hall of Fame

  ~ Andrew Moore ~

 
 
  Andrew Moore was named to the 2017 CoSN Volunteer Hall of Fame in March 2017. This award is sponsored by the Consortium for School Networking. Andrew has served as the Chief Information Officer of Boulder Valley School District for seven years. He worked previously for 28 years in private industry, as well as served as the Mayor of the Town of Erie from 2004-2010. Thank you, Andrew, for all that you do for Colorado's students! Join us in celebrating this outstanding school technology leader!

Where do the great ideas come from in your organization?
Great ideas come from two main sources in my organization. The first is from listening to my customers and my team. We are now rolling out a 1-for-1 program across the district called “1-to-web.” This program started from discussions four years ago with my customers and ed tech team. The second place great ideas come from is conferences. I’m engaged in both CASE (CALET) and CoSN, where I was acknowledged for this volunteer award. CoSN helped me understand the digital divide (homework gap), which has motivated me to solve it through creative and political ways.

 

What is one characteristic that every leader should possess?
I believe that a positive attitude along with perseverance can lead to meaningful change, especially when that change is difficult but will result in long term benefits. I have my eye on the long term with every decision I make which is not always the easy short-term decision. These characteristics have been the foundation for transformational change in IT and Ed Tech at Boulder Valley School District over the last seven years.

 

What is the biggest challenge facing leaders today?
With little doubt, it is the funding issues created by the constitutional collisions between TABOR, Gallagher, and Amendment 23. This is an area where short-term fixes come at the expense of the hard long-term changes that are needed to provide a sustainable and predictable K12 funding model. We can’t give up the push for long-term and meaningful reform. It is why I volunteer on the CASE Legislative Committee and engage with groups like Great Ed who influence the political process in a proactive way.
