Magna Award

Today, our district was named a recipient of the American School Board Journal’s Magna Awards for 2015. Selected by a panel of judges, the award showcases programs and projects that are examples of innovation and excellence in school governance. We were chosen for our Stopping the Summer Slide program, which received an honorable mention by the publication.

Stopping the Summer Slide is a summer iPad extension program that is instrumental in advancing student learning during the months students are off from school and emphasizing the need to provide equitable programs for all students while respecting and enhancing the unique gifts of every child. Through the use of the district’s one-to-one iPad initiative, teachers were able to leverage various applications to create a low-cost, high-interest, interactive “virtual summer school” for all students.

I’m extremely proud of everyone who has contributed to the success of this program and would especially like to thank the Board for its continued support of such instrumental programs.
