Bethlehem, Pa. (PRWEB) March 18, 2015 -- SunGard K-12 Education today launched an all-new award program to celebrate the excellence of its customers’ ed-tech initiatives. The Lead without Limits Awards Program seeks to recognize school districts, schools, departments, administrators, and educators that leverage technology to improve student achievement and/or school or district efficiency.
According to George Pepper, president and CEO of SunGard K-12 Education, this award program highlights efforts that are making a difference for students. “It’s an honor to serve this nation’s school districts as they inspire students and support them in realizing the greatest possibilities for their lives,” says Pepper. “Through the Lead without Limits Awards Program, SunGard K-12 Education hopes to express our appreciation for their dedication and innovation that is having a positive impact on our children.”
Each month, SunGard K-12 plans to recognize at least one district, school, department, or individual in one of three categories:
Data All-Star. Data All-Stars use data to positively affect student achievement by applying best practices or innovating processes. Whether their initiatives are impacting one student or hundreds of students, nominees are unlocking student potential by applying insights gained from an analysis of data.
Operational Efficiency Pacesetter. Operational Efficiency Pacesetters leverage technology to improve the efficiency of school/district processes. Nominees set the pace for school/district productivity by creating initiatives that use technology to make things better, cheaper, quicker, and/or more effective.
Information Technology Innovator. Information Technology Innovators enhance the educational process with technology. Nominees’ information technology efforts support student achievement and/or improve school/district efficiency.
Monthly award recipients will be publicly recognized on SunGard K-12’s Education and Technology blog and its customer newsletter. As it shares its customers’ innovations and best practices, SunGard K-12 hopes their ideas will create opportunities for collaboration between educators and administrators and inspire districts to even greater successes. The annual Lead without Limits Awards recipients, one individual or district in each of the above categories, will be selected from among the monthly award recipients and recognized at the annual SunGard National Users Group conference.
Nominations for the Lead without Limits Awards will be accepted through an online application form available on SunGard K-12 Education’s website. For guidelines and selection process, please see the Lead without Limits Awards Program information online.
