The City Schools of Decatur rank in the top 10 nationally for the school board’s and district’s use of technology, according to a new survey.
Top-ranked school districts have been announced in the tenth annual Digital School Districts Survey by the Center for Digital Education and the National School Boards Association. The survey showcases exemplary school boards’ and districts’ use of technology to govern the district, communicate with students, parents and the community, and improve district operations.
This year’s recognition goes to school districts for their expanding use of innovative technologies district-wide, as well as in the classroom.
“Schools and school districts are embracing technology and it is really exciting not only to see the innovative ways they implement technology, but how they are using technology effectively to teach and advance education,” said Alan Cox with the Center for Digital Education. “These education leaders serve as an inspiration to other school districts nationwide for their creative efforts to provide an outstanding education for today’s students.”
“Technology innovations enable local school boards to connect with their communities and support students and teachers in ways that were unimaginable even a decade ago,” said NSBA’s Executive Director Thomas J. Gentzel.
