Rowan-Salisbury schools ranked in top 10 nationally for technology
SALISBURY — The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education and the school district were recently ranked among the top 10 national leaders in uses of technology for student success.
The top 10 districts and boards are announced through the Digital School Districts Survey Awards presented by the National School Boards Association and the Center for Digital Education.
The awards, now in their 13th year, recognize districts for their use of technology.
“This recognition is a reflection of the hard work put in by our staff each day,” school board Chairman Josh Wagner said. “Our implementation of technology has certainly been an uphill climb. Even now, we continue to improve upon it. Technology isn’t the answer. It is simply a tool to enhance education. I’m excited to see where we go.”
Board member Richard Miller and district Chief Legal Officer April Kuhn will accept the award at the National School Boards Association conference in Denver on March 25-27.
“This award speaks volumes to the commitment of our students, teachers and staff, as well as the tremendous support of our community, businesses and elected officials,” Superintendent Lynn Moody said. “This is our award, belonging to all of us. We have so much to celebrate.”
“This recognition speaks to the work of staff members throughout Rowan-Salisbury Schools,” said Andrew Smith, district chief strategy officer. “It also recognizes an innovative approach to instruction that allows students to use one-to-one devices at school and at home while providing educators with cutting-edge technologies to personalize instruction for students.”
