Lake Zurich Community Unit School District

Technology Services



The Technology Department is responsible for the overall planning, implementation, security and operation of the information systems and classroom technology in District 95.  Technology is a powerful tool for transforming learning. It allows us to rethink our approaches to communication and collaboration as well as providing opportunities for organizational efficiency and productivity so that we can meet the needs of students who have grown up in a digital era.

We are successful when we:

  • Design, implement and support innovative solutions aligned to the district mission.

  • Provide learners with consistent access to safe, robust and agile technology.

  • Ensure our stakeholders have a great technology experience.

  • Create an environment of shared ownership and responsibility.

Contact the iAgent Helpdesk

The iAgents are a student-run help desk at Lake Zurich High School. Students apply for the position each year, and if hired, spend their summer working on the iPads, part of the district's Mobile Learning Initiative (MLI).  They have training in customer service and how to troubleshoot the iPads. The work their first year on their iOS certification so they can begin to issue repairs for our iPad fleet.

Any high school students having a problem with their iPads should visit the iAgent help desk during their lunch. Middle school students can receive help online from the iAgents by entering a ticket in the iAgent Help desk, a shortcut on their iPad, or by visiting their building’s tech office.

Mobile Learning Initiative

The Mobile Learning Initiative is our program that ensures every secondary student has a technology device available for their learning. Each student grades 6-12 has a District iPad issued to them to be used for learning both at home and at school. Please see the brochure below for more information about the Mobile Learning Initiative.
