A national study looking at the impact of technology on student achievement has named the Walled Lake Consolidated School District one of the country’s premier districts.
The district was one of 20 in the nation to be named a Project RED Signature District by Project RED, a research group committed to integrating technology into the classroom.
“Walled Lake Consolidated Schools has made a definitive commitment to improve student learning and provide personalized instruction through a meaningful integration of technology, ongoing professional development and administrator support,” said Leslie Wilson of Project RED. “We are impressed with their initial plans and look forward to helping them use outcomes of our research to move their initiatives to the next level.”
Project RED: Revolutionizing Education was founded in 2010 by education consulting firms The Greaves Group and the Hayes Connection, and the One-to-One Institute, a non-profit organization that grew out of Michigan’s Freedom to Learn program.
Walled Lake Schools was the only district in Michigan to be selected out of Project RED’s application process. The district will now receive support and guidance for one-to-one education technology implementations.
