The Center for Digital Education has honored Northwest ISD for its pioneering uses of technology, bestowing its Digital School Districts Survey Award to the district and its school board.
Each year, the center awards districts and school boards that serve as exemplars of pioneering technology uses in education, as based on a survey of technology offerings. Those who are among the top 10 scores in each district category are granted the award for most fully implementing technology benchmarks as part of digital education. All public schools in the United States are eligible to participate, making the award a difficult honor to receive.
Northwest ISD was ranked No. 8 in the award program's large school district category, which classifies large districts as having enrollments of 12,000 students or more. The district's technology initiatives are led by Adam Fiend, chief technology officer, and educational technology efforts are overseen by Cara Carter, director of instructional technology.
The Digital School Districts Survey Award is presented in coordination with the National School Boards Association.
