NSBA's Technology Leadership Network (TLN), founded in 1987 and positioned at the intersection of policy and practice, provides the school board, administrators, and the district technology team with resources and experiences to help them make well-informed technology decisions.

Today’s TLN
After years as a stand-alone program, the TLN is now delivered as a member benefit for NSBA’s National Connection program. It continues to coordinate NSBA’s technology recognition programs and external work with technology innovation.

  • Superintendent
