Marquis Scott

Marquis Scott began his tenure as Lawrenceville’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) on July 1, 2018. In this position as a member of the School’s Senior Staff, he works with School leadership to prioritize and accomplish the technology needs of the School.

Scott leads Lawrenceville’s Information Technology Service (ITS) department. He articulates technology strategy, and works with ITS staff to provide creative and reliable information technology services and resources, as well as excellent customer service. As CTO, Scott is a trusted technology partner, working closely with departments throughout the School to strengthen and support both teaching and administrative systems. He evaluates and establishes technology best practices, policies, and procedures, including planning and budgeting. Scott manages cybersecurity for the School and planning for business continuity.

Scott came to Lawrenceville from the Nightingale-Bamford School (NBS) in New York City, where he served as CTO, head of the Computer Science Department, and an Upper School computer science teacher since 2014. He began his independent school career at Newark Academy in Livingston, N.J., where he served as director of information technology, director of the Summer Bridge Program, and director of diversity from 2002-14. In addition to his technology leadership, he contributed to both schools’ important institutional goals, including diversity and inclusion, plus summer and auxiliary programs.

As CTO at NBS, he directed many successful and forward-thinking technology and operational initiatives. Scott collaborated with a range of school leaders on mission-centric and strategic goals. He managed a $1.2 million budget and oversaw the Information Technology Department’s day-to-day operations, annual objectives, and departmental strategies. He established attainable Key Performance Indicators to implement IT and business objectives, cyber and network security, and facility and operational classroom upgrades.
Scott created a Faculty Technology leadership team to design IT best practices, creating professional development opportunities for teachers who promoted instructional and academic technology. He prepared and delivered IT, cyber security, and facility planning presentations to members of NBS community as well as national, regional, and local education organizations.
As a teacher at NBS, Scott taught courses on managing technology and strategic innovation, emphasizing business and entrepreneurial skills. He also collaborated with other faculty members to promote STEM, Makerspace, programming opportunities, and global education for both students and teachers. While he will not be a Lawrenceville faculty member, his prior experience in the classroom will give him a deeper understanding of faculty members’ needs as they look to use technology in innovative and creative ways around the Harkness table.
