SSSD Director of Information Technology Named Colorado CoSN Volunteer of the Year

Steamboat Springs, CO - April 14, 2023 - Tim Miles, the director of information technology for the Steamboat Springs School District, was selected as the 2023 Colorado Consortium of School Network (CoSN) Volunteer of the Year. 

The Colorado Association of Leaders in Educational Technology (CALET) Board selected Miles for the award that recognizes the achievements of one of CALET and CoSN’s members who has provided exemplary support to Colorado’s educational technology leaders over the past year. 

The CALET Board selected Miles for this award because he continually leads the state in being a collaborative asset to others to see what could benefit not just Steamboat but all school districts in Colorado. He is a constant place of reference when others are about to embark on a new technology project. 

“It’s an honor to receive this distinction,” said Miles. “It is truly a passion of mine to help and assist other districts with all their technology questions.” 

Miles has worked for the Steamboat Springs School District since the start of the 2006-2007 school year. He handles all things technology for Steamboat, South Routt, North Routt, and soon to be, the Montessori school. He is a founding member of three Broadband Consortiums. Northwest Colorado Broadband (NCB) which partners with Anchor Institutions here locally, has built out local Fiber Optics and established the first redundant network ring to Denver. Project THOR is NCB but regionalized, consisting of 10 communities throughout the North Western Slope, adding additional resilience while sharing the cost. Colorado Education Broadband Coalition (CEBC) is a collection of more than 80 schools acting as one for internet purchasing. The consortium's internet purchases have attracted other vendors into the Colorado broadband market, decreasing costs statewide. He is developing a similar concept around CyberSecurity, allowing schools a more affordable avenue to needed services.   

Miles will be honored at the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE) Annual Awards Reception on Friday, April 28, in Denver. 

“All too often, our visions and the hard work required in educational technology service go unnoticed and can even feel unappreciated, but your diligence and effort have clearly made a pronounced impression upon your peers and your community,” said the CALET Board. “For that, CALET applauds your nomination for the 2023’s CALET CoSN Volunteer of the Year Award.”

The Colorado CoSN Volunteer of the Year is also nominated for the national CoSN Volunteer of the Year award. The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes the achievements of one CoSN member who has provided exemplary support to the organization over the past year. In addition, CoSN honors several of the volunteers with induction into the CoSN Volunteer Hall of Fame each year. CoSN is a Washington, D.C.-based national professional association for school system technology leaders.
