Schools of Distinction


There’s still time for you to apply for your school to be named a 2006 Schools of Distinction. Criteria include excellence in student achievement, technology or teamwork. A quick review of the 20 2005 winners indicates the level of competition for $5M in prize money. Wow! And congratulations to John Stanford International School in Seattle for setting a fast pace as “Best of the Best” for other public schools to follow. Do any of the 20 schools use Tablet PCs?
