FWSU NAMED APPLE DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL SYSTEM
Franklin West Supervisory Union is pleased to announce its recent recognition as a 2014-2016 Apple Distinguished School. The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate a clear vision of exemplary learning environments. FWSU began implementing a 1:1 iPad program three years ago. The program now includes all students in grades 5/6 through 12 across three member schools including BFA Fairfax, Fletcher Elementary, and Georgia Elementary Middle School.
“I’m excited for all of our schools to receive this recognition from Apple. Over the past three years, FWSU has gained incredible momentum in realizing its four goals: student-centered learning, student leadership, community engagement, and flexible learning environments. The 1:1 iPad implementation has developed unparalleled customized learning opportunities for our students,” states Superintendent Ned Kirsch. “The selection of FWSU as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our rising success. We are designing innovative and compelling learning environments that engage students in the digital age."
