The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System placed third in a national survey assessed by the Center for Digital Education, a national research and advisory institute specializing in K-12 and higher education technology trends. The survey showcases exemplary school boards’ and districts’ use of technology to govern the district, communicate with students, parents and the community, and to improve district operations.
The announcement was made at an awards reception during the National School Board Association conference in Boston, MA. SCCPSS competed in the Large Student
Population District category against districts with 12,000 or more students, placing SCCPSS in the company of Barrow and Fayette Counties, as well as school districts from Kansas City, Roanoke, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Colorado Springs, and Chicago.
Those that demonstrated the most comprehensive use of digital technology were included among the top ten ranking districts. SCCPSS’ usage of technology in the classroom, administrative applications, and digital communication channels were among the highlights in the survey.
