For the eighth year in a row, High School District 214 is among the top-ranked school districts in the nation using cutting edge technology to enhance learning and curriculum.
The achievement, as reported in the recently posted 2016-2017 Digital School Districts Survey by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) and the National School Boards Association (NSBA), recognizes exemplary school boards' and districts' use of technology to govern their district, communicate with students, parents and community and improve learning.
District 214 tied for seventh among the top 10 U.S. large-school districts with student populations of 12,000 or more.
“Technology is an essential tool for the transformation of education in our country,” said Dr. Kecia Ray, executive director for the Center for Digital Education. “The Digital School Districts Survey helps districts measure progress toward transformation and I'm proud to recognize these districts and the work that is represented in their award. Congratulations to all of the award winners and great thanks to all who participated in the survey.”
The top-ten rankings are awarded to those school boards and districts that most fully implement technology benchmarks in the evolution of digital education, as represented in the survey questions.
This is the eighth year District 214 has been recognized as being in the top ten in the large school district category. To learn more about the Digital School Districts Survey, click here.
