South Carolina District Wins the Sylvia Charp Award

Richland School District Two (SC) is the winner of the 2014 Sylvia Charp Award for District Innovation in Technology. Presented by THE Journal and ISTE in honor of the magazine’s founding editor, this award recognizes a school system for innovation in the equitable and widespread application of educational technology.

Richland School District Two earned the award by having both 1-to-1 and BYOD programs. These programs were planned in conjunction with teachers, students and the community, and are being implemented alongside policies and procedures that are in place to make sure that any tech implementation supports teach and learning.

Technology integration coordinator Donna Teuber will accept the award on her district’s behalf at ISTE 2014, which will take place in Atlanta from June 28 to July 1. A profile of the winning district will appear in a future issue of THE Journal.
