Dr. Alice Owen, recently retired from Irving ISD’s Division Director of Technology, has accepted the position of Executive Director of the Texas K-12 CTO Council, a state-wide non-profit organization comprised of school district technology leaders. “I am very excited to work with such a great organization and committed Board”, said Dr. Owen. “I am very proud that the Board had the vision to see that the organization was ready for the next level in the development of its mission and service to its members.” Dr. Owen was one of the founding officers of the Texas K-12 CTO Council and served as Secretary and Chair for the organization. She recently retired after 38 years in public education and began her duties with the CTO Council on November 1.

The primary purpose of the Texas K-12 CTO Council is to assist Texas K-12 school districts in understanding how to plan for the use and successful implementation of information technology in Texas school districts and to advocate for district technology needs to improve student learning. The Texas K-12 CTO Council was organized in 2003 as the first state chapter of the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and is comprised of chief technology officers in school districts from around the state.
