The Information Technology Department at Houston Independent School District is committed to providing a high-quality education for every child in the district, regardless of where they live or the school they choose to attend. HISD has 279 schools, 30,000 staff, and more than 203,000 students, making it the largest district in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States. Serving the needs of our growing community of students, teachers, administration, and staff requires a secure, robust infrastructure, state of the art equipment, and innovative software. These tools support both learning in the schools, and the rigorous assessment and analysis necessary to meet the district’s educational and operational goals.
The IT environment consists of 310 locations that include call centers, professional development sites, schools, and a centralized data center. They are all supported by a dedicated team that shares a passion for technology as a tool for unlocking the potential of every child in our district.
