Congratulations to Searcy School District computer technician, John Sullivan, for receiving his CETL® (Certified Education Technology Leader)certification! The CETL ® program is the only accredited practice-based certification program available to technology leaders that bridges technical knowledge, understanding of the educational environment, leadership and vision, and the management of technology and support resources needed to integrate technology across the curriculum to advance student outcomes. The CETL® credential is a true measure of today's education technology leaders, identifying those who have mastered the framework skills and knowledge needed to bring 21st-Century skills to schools.Technology touches every part of a child’s education and technical leaders should have an understanding of their work environment. Last night at the November board meeting, Mike Mertens of AAEA presented Mr. Sullivan with his certificate. We commend Mr. Sullivan on this outstanding achievement!
