hopes to take students beyond their current level, and to enhance
their educational experience.
"Victor is a victory for LBUSD," said Steven Keller, assistant
superintendent of instructional services.
"His 10 years of educational technology leadership is a
significant benefit to our organization. As we continue to quest for
excellence, Victor will be a key leader in this process," Keller
Jan Vickers, board of education president, said the new position
of director of technology will help students and staff.
"The hiring of Mr. Guthrie allows our district to further our
commitment to providing our students the educational opportunities of
the rapidly expanding world of technology. This will support our
staff as they continue to utilize technology, not only in teaching
but also in home-to-school communication," Vickers said, noting that
the district plans to post grades online.
"With the implementation of the individual student portfolio
program this fall, we are taking a huge next step in online
reporting, planning and support for each student," Vickers said.
Guthrie is beginning work on his master's degree in educational
technology at Pepperdine University and has a strong technical
background from his work in other school systems. In addition to his
duties at the district, he is hoping to incorporate community
outreach as a part of the technology department offerings.
