K-8 School Atop the Santa Monica Mountains Hires Outstanding IT Manager

Berkeley Hall School

Sitting atop 66 acres of the Santa Monica Mountains, Berkeley Hall School is the oldest PS-8, coeducational independent school in Los Angeles. Its campus is a serene retreat from the bustle of nearby neighborhoods. The grounds embody what Berkeley Hall School offers its 260 students – a safe, supportive, and close-knit community, where each child is empowered to become a fearless scholar and conscientious citizen. Students enjoy an abundance of outdoor learning areas, in addition to robust athletic facilities and a recently designed wellness center.

As important as the outdoors and face-to-face education are to Berkeley Hall, technology is also an essential – and increasingly so – area of school operations. Over the last several years, the school has invested heavily in its technology program. Continuing that trend, the school created a new position: IT manager. That role would manage an on-campus support specialist and oversee a third-party technology solutions provider, which provides engineering and back-end support. The school was looking for an IT manager willing to be hands-on and proactive with data and systems administration. For the last few years, that area of technology support has been served by an out-of-state contractor, who would step aside once this position is filled. Another important focus area for the IT manager was the coordination of technology projects, which often involve a variety of stakeholders and critical needs. The IT manager reports to the director of campus operations, also a new role that was just hired earlier in the spring of 2023.

Berkeley Hall was thrilled to welcome Sara Aljuboori in the summer of 2023.
