Twelve Georgia districts won the 2011-2012 Digital School District Survey. The study, coordinated by the Center for Digital Education and in partnership with the National School Boards Association, examined and documented school boards and districts' online presence, technology applications that allow the public to interact with school board members, administrators and teachers as well as their access to information such as school board calendars, district policies as well as technology use in the district and classrooms. Eleven of the 12 Georgia winners are current subscribers to eBOARD, and diligently use the modular web-based governance software. Currently over 200 school systems are using eBOARDsolutions as a tool to align the work of the system and keep the focus on the strategic goal of improving student achievement.
Sis Henry, GSBA Executive Director, said "We are proud to see so many Georgia Districts presented in the top ten of this year's Digital School District Survey."
