Share Article

School administrators are encouraged to nominate their successful district initiatives by Aug. 1.

The editors of District Administration magazine are proud to announce a new award program, called Districts of Distinction. This national recognition program will honor school districts that are leading the way with new ideas that work. It will recognize established school district initiatives that are yielding quantifiable benefits, and that could be replicated by other districts.

If your school district is engaged in an innovative project that is improving student outcomes, streamlining operations or meeting the needs of your community, it could be a District of Distinction.

“The Districts of Distinction recognition program will not only highlight innovative and outstanding district programs, but it will also help school district administrators learn from each other and build success in their own districts,” says JD Solomon, editorial director of District Administration magazine.

Honorees for the inaugural round of the Districts of Distinction program will be announced in the November 2014 edition of District Administration. The program will expand in 2015 with multiple opportunities for participation.

Districts of Distinction honorees will:
Be identified in District Administration magazine and on the magazine’s website
Be included in a nationally distributed press release and in The District, a newsletter distributed to superintendent-members of the District Administration Leadership Institute
Receive a District of Distinction certificate along with a letter of commendation from the Publisher of District Administration
Receive a press release template to promote their recognition to local media

The deadline for applications is Friday, August 1. Districts can submit an application at districtadministration.com/dod.
