The Center for Digital Education has named Dallas ISD as a top school board/district in the nation for its use of technology.
Dallas ISD was ranked among the top 10 large school districts in the survey.
Now in its 12th year, the Digital School Districts Survey Awards recognize exemplary use of technology by school boards and districts.
“This award is recognition and confirmation that Dallas ISD is doing good things with technology in the classroom and in communications within the district,” said Bob Moore, Dallas ISD Chief Technology Officer.
The Digital School Districts Survey top-20 rankings are awarded to the school boards/districts that most fully implement technology benchmarks in the evolution of digital education, as represented in the survey questions. All U.S. public school districts are eligible to participate in the Digital School Districts Survey.
“School districts, with the support of their school boards, are increasingly focused on learning through innovative technologies,” said a statement from Dr. Kecia Ray, executive director for the Center for Digital Education. “As a result, students are using all kinds of cutting-edge tools that assist learning, inspire creativity and help prepare them for the future. It’s my privilege to congratulate these school districts that are making exceptional gains to transform education systems with effective uses of technology.”
“The results of the Digital School Districts Survey exemplify how visionary leadership in the board room supports the innovative use of technology in the classroom and in the delivery of district services,” said a statement from National School Boards Association Executive Director Thomas J. Gentzel. “The annual survey questions incorporate the latest technology trends and allow district leaders to utilize the survey instrument as a quick self-assessment tool to compare their own districts’ use of technology against national trends.”
