David Oestreicher has been selected as Hutto ISD’s new director of technology and digital learning, according to a Sept. 30 district news release. Oestreicher has 23 years of technology experience, including serving the previous 13 years as technology director at Lewisville ISD, Seattle Public Schools and Mineral Wells ISD, per the release.
“I believe that the proper use of technology in education can benefit students through engagement, transforming learning, and teaching collaboration and other real-world skills,” Oestreicher said in the release. “I am passionate about technology in schools, and I am excited for what the future holds at Hutto ISD.”
Oestreicher, who was a finalist for the 2019 Texas Computer Education Association Technology Administrator of the Year, previously served as vice chair of the Information Technology Committee of the Texas Association of School Business Officials from 2011-13 before serving as president of the committee from 2013-15, according to the release.
“With recent improvements to funding, voter approval of the May 2019 Bond that included $16 million set aside for technology upgrades, and a great ‘community driven’ technology plan that will provide vision and planning parameters for continuous improvement, particularly in the areas of instructional technology, I believe our Tech Department is headed down a great path,” HISD Assistant Superintendent of Operations Henry Gideon said in the release.
Oestreicher will begin working in the district Oct. 7.< Back to all impacts
