Technology Team

Jim Blodgett
Director of Technology

In August of 2012, I became the Director of Technology for the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District. With the help of a talented and hardworking staff, I oversee all of the technology for the district, as well as contribute to the district’s executive and leadership teams. I am excited about helping the district move forward with its plan to improve productivity, efficiency and student achievement through the use modern technologies. I am married and have a son. Several years ago we were adopted by two rag doll mix cats, who help us keep our priorities in line with their desires. When I am not not working, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, biking, skiing and snowshoeing with my family. You can find my blog at and I am often on Twitter @MCPTechDir
