Blue Valley’s use of innovative technologies district-wide, as well as in the classroom, has landed the district a national digital district ranking. The district ranked in the top 10 of the Digital School Districts national survey. The honor was announced by the Center for Digital Education and the National School Boards Association. Blue Valley placed eighth in the large district category.
“Being named a digital district validates the research-based approach we are taking to enhance technology for students,” said Tom Trigg, Blue Valley Schools Superintendent. “We will continue to pilot and implement proven technologies that result in accelerated learning.”
The purpose of the survey is to showcase exemplary school boards’ and school districts’ use of technology to govern the district, communicate with students, parents and the community and to improve district operations. The district has been recognized seven of the last nine years.
Blue Valley is committed to using technology to help further the strategic plan goals of unprecedented academic success and unparalleled personal growth for every student.
“We feel very honored to be considered one of the top districts nationally that exemplifies outstanding use of technology to support the district, expand communications with stakeholders, and further students’ educational growth and success,” said Greg DeYoung, CIO & Executive Director for Information Technology Services. “This award recognizes the hard work of our staff and students to bring technology innovation to life in the classroom. Without the support of our patrons and Board of Education, innovation would not be possible.”
