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 second round of the “Districts of Distinction” program will be announced in the March 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 certificate 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 application period for the March 2015 round is closed.
Districts of Distinction will have multiple opportunities for participation in 2015. For the July round, you can apply starting on March 2 through April 13; for the November round, you can apply starting July 1 through Aug. 14.; for March 2016, you can apply starting Nov. 1 through Dec. 15.
