Districts of Distinction

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 in the inaugural round of the “Districts of Distinction” program will be announced in the November 2014 edition of District Administration. The program will expand in 2015 with multiple opportunities for participation.

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

Applications for the current round are closed. Applications for the next round will be accepted starting in November.
