NISD’s New Chief Technology Officer
At a school board meeting on July 29, the Northwest ISD Board of Trustees approved Adam Feind, CETL as the district’s new chief technology officer.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Feind to the Northwest ISD family,” said Superintendent of Schools Karen G. Rue, Ed.D. “Mr. Feind brings a strong background in strategic planning, networking operations and instructional technology. I look forward to him sharing his expertise with NISD and assisting in the planning for future-ready learners.”
Feind is the executive director of technology for Midway Independent School District, where he has led the district in strategic planning and a 1:1 and virtual desktop initiative for the past 16 years. Prior to a career in education, Feind has served as a LAN manager for Providence Health Center and a computer operator for Brazos Electric Cooperative.
“I am excited to be a part of a school district that strongly aligns with my goals and vision for education,” said Chief Technology Officer Adam Feind. “I am eager to meet the staff and build upon the foundation already created in Northwest ISD.”
Feind received a bachelor’s of business administration in computer information systems from Baylor University. He is a Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL) and is one of 15 technology leaders to hold this certification in the state of Texas. As a member of the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), a professional association for school district technology leaders, Feind strives to grow tomorrow’s leaders through engaging learning environments. Last year, Mr. Feind was instrumental in leading a team from Cisco, along with other school districts, to restore network, telephone, wireless and Internet access to West ISD elementary campuses for staff and students during the West fertilizer explosion.
“I look forward to touching the lives of students and enhancing the learning experience in NISD,” Feind said. “Technology should be ubiquitous, accessible and robust, and I look forward to bringing Northwest ISD to the next level.”
