Tech-Savvy Superintendent Awards

As school leaders come to rely on computing devices and the internet to engage students’ interest, track their progress, personalize instruction, and aid in decision making, an understanding of how technology can be used to transform teaching and learning is now an essential characteristic for the 21st-century school executive.

Our Tech-Savvy Superintendent Awards honor the men and women at the forefront of this understanding and hold them up as national models for other superintendents to follow.
