Plainville Community Schools has been named a “District of Distinction” by national publication District Administration, according to Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maureen Brummett.
This year, 45 school districts throughout the United States were selected by application for this recognition. Plainville Community Schools and fellow honorees are showcased in the July 2018 edition of the publication.
According to District Administration’s Editorial Director JD Solomon, the school districts were selected for innovative, homegrown programs that are making a real difference in their schools and communities.
The Plainville Community Schools’ winning submission focuses on the district’s “Vision in Action” and the challenge of providing authentic and innovative learning experiences that engage students and promote success in a technology-driven world.
The district’s focus on innovative, technology-driven learning was highlighted, featuring the breadth of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) teaching and learning at all levels, including maker spaces at the elementary schools, the middle school’s new STEAM Lab featuring music production and more, and the high school’s advanced STEAM Lab offerings including 3D design, and robotics.
The global impact of the district’s focus on providing these authentic technology-driven learning experiences can be noted in several real world applications such as the “Go Baby Go” collaborative project where Plainville students, together with mentors from Central Connecticut State University, modify toy vehicles for local toddlers with special needs.
