District given 2018 TechXcellence recognition
The Bellefonte Area School District is in the national spotlight, again. On June 1, the deputy editor of District Administration magazine announced that the district was given a 2018 TechXcellence recognition that identifies schools and districts for outstanding technology programs.
According to information from Deputy Editor Ray Bendici, the TechXcellence award was created by the magazine, and sponsored by HP and Intel.
An article in the magazine called, “Transforming PD (Professional Development) into Professional Learning,” highlights the district’s use of Chromebooks and other tech-related software used by students and staff, while educators take it among themselves to participate in small-group training to learn how to best use this technology. Middle school Principal Sommer Garman is quoted in it. The article can be found here: http://www.nxtbook.com/pmg/DA/TechX_0618/index.php#/4
