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.
Honorees for the third round of the “Districts of Distinction” program will be announced in the July 2015 edition of District Administration.
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
The nomination period for the July 2015 round is now closed. Honorees will be announced in early July. Districts of Distinction will have multiple opportunities for participation in 2015 and 2016. For the November round, you can apply starting July 1 through Aug. 14 and for March 2016, you can apply starting Nov. 1 through Dec. 15.
