MCPS Honored for Use of Technology in Education

September 25, 2003
The National School Boards Association (NSBA) has recognized Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) for exemplary use of technology in education.

MCPS was selected as one of three school districts from across the country to receive the 2003 NSBA Technology Leadership District Salute. Staff from the MCPS Office of Global Access Technology (OGAT) completed the winning application.

The District Salute recognizes MCPS for its Technology Modernization Program and the Integrated Quality Management System. NSBA’s goal is to showcase districts that have established track records of proven results that can be replicated by other districts.

District Salute schools will be featured in the October edition of Scholastic Administrator magazine.

NSBA also has invited OGAT to give a presentation at the NSBA annual conference in California that will include a demonstration of how the school system’s data warehouse and Instructional Management System support the System of Shared Accountability, No Child Left Behind requirements, data-driven instructional decision making, parental involvement, and workforce excellence.

In addition, MCPS was selected as one of three school districts invited to be an NSBA Technology Site Visit district in 2004. Each year, NSBA’s Institute for the Transfer of Technology for Education sponsors visits to districts that have developed innovative programming for students and staff. The visit to MCPS is scheduled for March 15 and 16, 2004.
