Technology and Library Services Department

Troup ISD Technology & Library Services

The Department of Technology and Library Services is comprised of two separate divisions - technology and library services. Both divisions are under the supervision of the Executive Director of Technology and Library services. It is the primary responsibility of both departments to provide the resources and support necessary for teaching and learning.

The primary responsibility of the technology team is to maintain all technology equipment in classrooms and on the network. Currently, there are approximately 1200 computers in operation throughout the district, along with iPads, iPods, wireless slates, video conferencing equipment, interactive white boards, projectors, laptops, tablet PCs, printers, and a variety of other equipment and software. Our network, under the management of Teresa Waggoner, is comprised of a 10 gigabit fiber backbone with a 200MB connection to the Internet with fiber transport. Additionally, the district's phone system is a Voice Over IP system and runs on the network along with the district's security cameras and a host of other crucial network devices. By the way, we are very proud of Mrs. Waggoner. She was named the TCEA Golden Apple Technical Support Person of the Year for 2010-2011 for the State of Texas!

Campus libraries are responsible for providing access to resources and information for both students and teachers, as well as other district employees. Troup ISD houses a wide variety of print materials for students, from books to magazines and newspapers. On average, campus libraries circulate a combined total of more than 50,000 books to students each year! Our kids love to read!

Teachers also have access to a large collection of audio visual resources through our libraries.  Other library services include faculty access to United Streaming and online access to the TexShare Databases via our local public library.
