Innovative districts nationwide honored in annual award program

District Administration magazine is honoring 18 schools and districts for education technology initiatives as part of the Schools of TechXcellence program. This is the second year of this national recognition program.

TechXcellence was created by District Administration magazine, and sponsored by HP and Intel, to recognize schools that have implemented innovative, effective and replicable technology programs that contribute meaningfully to student or operational success. The December 2018 honorees were selected by the program’s judges from numerous nominations, and reflect programs that demonstrate effective and replicable success.

The 18 schools and districts honored in this round of TechXcellence—from 11 states—have programs that incorporate technology powered by Intel, including laptops, tablets and 3D printers.

For example, at Lake Mary High School in Florida, students receive hands-on training and learn high-tech skills as they prepare for advanced manufacturing careers with local partners such as NASA. In The Tech Lab at Cedar Point Elementary School in Bristow, Virginia, students brainstorm, collaborate and create solutions to real-world engineering problems. And at Raymond Temple Elementary School in Buena Park, California, students develop critical thinking skills and a capacity for innovation through lessons that include augmented and virtual reality.

“Students are excited to use the latest devices and apps as part of their education, which is fueled by the vision and drive of teachers, principals and district leaders,” says JD Solomon, editorial director at District Administration magazine. “We hope our readers are inspired by the integration of technology demonstrated by these honorees to launch similar initiatives in their own schools.”
