Districts of Distinction is a national recognition program created by District Administration magazine to honor school districts that are leading the way with new ideas that work. We’re looking to recognize established initiatives that are yielding quantifiable benefits, and that could be replicated by other districts.
If your school district is engaged in an innovative project that is improving student outcomes, streamlining operations or meeting the needs of your community, it could be a District of Distinction.
To submit a nomination on behalf of your district, please fill out this form. The deadline for nominations is Friday, August 14.
Districts of Distinction honorees will:
- Be identified in District Administration magazine and on the magazine’s website
- Be included in a nationally distributed press release and in The District, a newsletter distributed to superintendent-members of the District Administration Leadership Institute
- Receive a District of Distinction plaque along with a letter of commendation from the Publisher of District Administration
- Receive a press release template to promote their recognition to local media
Honorees for the fourth round of the “Districts of Distinction” program will be announced in the November 2015 edition of District Administration magazine. Districts of Distinction will have multiple opportunities for participation in 2016. For March 2016, you can apply Nov. 1 through Dec. 15; for July 2016, you can apply March 1 through April 15; and for November 2016, you can apply July 1 through August. 15.
