The Richmond County Georgia School System rarely makes Top 10 announcements; however, 2014-2015 school year proves its success in Richmond County Board of Education initiatives.
“School districts, with the support of their school boards, continue their commitment to initiatives that enhance learning through innovative technologies,” said Alan Cox, Senior Vice President 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 who are leading the way towards modernizing education.”
“Over the past 10 years, the annual Digital School Districts Survey has illustrated amazing advancements in education technology,” said NSBA’s Executive Director Thomas J. Gentzel. “This year’s survey yet again shows how technology innovations can empower local school boards to advance their vision for public education and implement policies that support that vision.”
The top-ten rankings are awarded to those 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. View the full list of school districts honored below.
