New York City All-Boys School Hires Experienced IT/IS Director

The Allen-Stevenson School

Founded in 1883, The Allen-Stevenson School has been educating boys in Grades K-8 for over 140 years. Allen-Stevenson designs learning experiences that challenge boys to take thoughtful risks in pursuing excellence. Allen-Stevenson strives to give boys the foundation to become conscientious, impactful global citizens. With a focus on the 3 A’s — Academics, Athletics, and the Arts — Allen-Stevenson allows each boy to have experiences that fuel his curiosity and connect learning across all disciplines. An Allen-Stevenson boy’s journey is possible because of Allen-Stevenson’s engaged and supportive faculty, who believe there are many ways to be a boy and recognize Allen-Stevenson boys for their varied interests and accomplishments. The schoolhouse on the Upper East Side of New York City was recently fully renovated and includes modern spaces for visual and performing arts, science & engineering labs, an enlarged Library Tech Commons, and a teaching greenhouse.

Technology is a huge part of the academic program at Allen-Stevenson and it also serves every operational and non-academic department as well. The Director of IT and Information Systems would lead a department that included one other full-time technology professional who focused on managing the help desk and overseeing several enterprise application systems. At Allen-Stevenson the IT/IS Department is responsible for delivering, maintaining, and monitoring core IT infrastructure and services. The IT/IS Department works in parallel to a Library and Educational Technology Department, which is led by a director and focuses on student tech education, faculty coaching, and academic technology integration.

Allen-Stevenson sought someone who was capable of managing an IT/IS environment with a hands-on approach, while at the same time bringing excellent project management and leadership skills. The school also sought a director who would be eager to partner with the Director of Library Services and Educational Technology on all-school technology strategy and planning. The Director of IT and Information Systems reported to the Chief Financial and Operating Officer.

Allen Stevenson was thrilled to welcome Jonathan Hom to the position in the summer of 2024.
