“More than 2,600 districts participated in Speak Up 2015, but these 20 stood out to us for their commitment to raising the voices of their stakeholders, notably students, community members, and educators, at all levels,” said Julie Evans, Project Tomorrow’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Superintendents across the country are dealing with an array of educational technology opportunities, and Speak Up offers a platform so they can learn directly from their stakeholders about what students, parents and teachers are looking for now and in the future,” said Daniel A. Domenech, Executive Director of the American Association of School Administrators. “The superintendents being recognized by Project Tomorrow are leaders in the effective use of technology for learning.”
