Technology & Innovation
The Crandall Independent School District provides technology resources to its students and staff for educational and administrative purposes. The goal in providing these resources is to promote educational excellence within Crandall ISD by facilitating resource sharing, innovation and communication with the support and supervision of parents, teachers and support staff.
Student access of network and Internet resources is governed by the CISD Acceptable Use Policy for Student Technology Use and the Student Code of Conduct. All students will be issued a network account and other resources required to complete course requirements. The AUP outlines the policies and guidelines for using technology in the district.

All purchases of software and technology equipment including computers and any device that connects to a computer or the network, must be approved by the Crandall ISD Technology Department. Purchase orders within the Skyward finance system for technology items are automatically routed through the Technology Department for approval. All order requests are reviewed by the Technology Department and may be accepted or declined based on the associated technical requirements, support requirements, and/or consistency with the district goals.
A copy of the software and its license must be provided to the technology department prior to any installation of software (all software will be installed by district technology personnel). The software will only be installed on the number of computers for which the district owns a license. The technology staff should be consulted prior to purchasing any software to ensure compatibility with our network and computers. Computer technicians will uninstall without notice any software for which the district does not have a software license.
The technology department will be happy to provide assistance in product selection and pricing information. Please contact Alysha Ellington (x5820) with any requests.
