Celebrating Innovation and Excellence in K12
What is Districts of Distinction
Districts of Distinction is a national annual 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.
Please note: The application deadline for the 2018 Districts of Distinction program has passed. The period for submitting an application for 2019 begins on January 15, 2019.
