ACPE enacted the Pacific Northwest CoSN Chapter in 2015 to create an ACPE CTO Council that:
- Provides an interactive and engaging forum for educational IT professionals in Oregon and Washington to share knowledge and skills on best practices, emerging trends and technologies pertinent to serving and supporting the K-12 environment.
- Advocates for the professional development of education technology directors, CTOs, administrators, and leaders in Oregon and Washington.
- Elevates the professional practice of education technology by coordinating and providing peer networking and collaborative opportunities for members.
- Supports education technology leaders in providing visionary leadership, sound research and examples of best practices.
CoSN, the Consortium for School Networking, is the premier professional association for school system technology leaders. CoSN provides thought leadership resources, community, best practices and advocacy tools to help leaders succeed in the digital transformation. CoSN represents over 13 million students in school districts nationwide and continues to grow as a powerful and influential voice in K-12 education.
