The U.S. Department of Education recently released the Future Ready District Pledge to assist school districts with the successful transition to personalized, digital learning. In support of this effort, superintendents who sign the Future Ready District Pledge will receive implementation guidance, access to online resources, and information about regional workshops with the Alliance for Excellent Education.
The Future Ready District Pledge establishes a framework for achieving the goals laid out in President Obama’s ConnectEd Initiative. These goals include:
- upgrading broadband and high-speed wireless connectivity;
- providing access to educational devices and high quality digital content; and
- training teachers to use technology effectively to improve student learning.
