    Do you work well with your CAO or CFO?

    CoSN is researching and planning a mentorship program for new CTOs (with 0-3 years of experience). As part of this research, we are gathering data to help inform program content.

    As a district technology leader, do you have a successful working relationship with your CAO and/or CFO? We are conducting two focus groups – one with CFOs and the other with CAOs – to determine the characteristics of a successful partnership. Please nominate your CFO and/or CAO to participate in a one-hour virtual call to be scheduled in late Nov/early Dec. We will offer a small token of appreciation for their time and feedback.

    Please send their names by Monday, Nov 12th to Susan at or Marci at Thank you for your help and please let us know if you have questions.

    I've been the de facto CTO in my district for 20 years and have great working relationships with four different CFOs in that time.  At the risk of sounding egotistical, would I be able to assist in this project?

    (Also:  I've asked my current CFO if I can nominate him.  I'm waiting for a reply.)
