WJCC Public Schools has earned national recognition in the Digital School Districts Survey Awards – an award program recognizing exemplary use of technology by school boards and districts. WJCC placed 6th in the Top Ten of Mid-Size School Districts and is one of only five Virginia school divisions to earn recognition.
The Digital School Districts Survey top-ten 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.
Now in its 13th year, the awards are presented by the Center for Digital Education at the National School Boards Association’s annual conference each spring.
“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 school boards in these districts are recognized for utilizing technology solutions to make their work as a board more transparent and their district operations more efficient,” said Thomas J. Gentzel, executive director and chief executive officer for the National School Boards Association. “Their accomplishments demonstrate that innovative approaches can be embraced by any district, regardless of its size or location.”
