Dekalb County Schools Case Study

Business Challenge

DeKalb County School District wanted a partner who could translate the needs of the school system into technology terms. They also wanted to insure their vendor cared as much about the quality of education as they did.


Philotek levered our bullseye approach to determine what the school system needed based on learning and management objectives and then how best to utilize technology to deliver those resources. Over the course of the last 4 years, Dekalb County School District and Philotek have worked on multiple successful projects together. These projects improved the learning experience and children’s safety in the schools as well as improved and simplified the backend management for Dekalb’s administrative team.
