Posted on 12/04/2020
Dear Douglas County School District Community,

It is a pleasure to share that Mark Blair will serve the Douglas County School District (DCSD) as our new Chief Technology Officer (CTO), effective immediately.

Mark is a dedicated technology executive with proven expertise, both technical and educational. He joined DCSD 25 years ago as a technology teacher. Since that time, he has held various roles in the DCSD Information Technology Department, most recently as the Director of School Technology. Mark also led the implementation of Google Apps for staff and students in the district, and managed the acquisition and hands-on distribution of 10,000 computers and hotspots to staff and students at the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chief Technology Officer position is critical during this remote learning time. Mark will lead his team in supporting families and staff members with technology needs. He prides himself on his servant leadership abilities and his strategic vision. Mark is an incredible asset to DCSD.

Mark earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of California, Irvine and his Master’s from the University of Colorado, Denver. He has spent his entire career with us in DCSD, is a proud DCSD parent and a Douglas County resident.

Please join me in congratulating Mark on his new role as DCSD’s Chief Technology Officer.

Sincerely,

Corey Wise
Interim Superintendent
Douglas County School District
