Engagement and Technology Lead

What is an ETL?

An ETL is the school's principal-designated Engagement and Technology Lead. This role was previously known as the Technology Liaison. Engagement and Technology Leads are expected to attend district-sponsored technology professional development throughout the school year and apply strategies at their schools. They are leaders who exemplify quality in learning with instructional technology. They support their school implementation of countywide technology initiatives through the lens of instruction first, technology second.
