From the Superintendent
In 2013, Midway embarked on an innovative one-to-one initiative that provided digital devices to every student. This helped level the playing field for access to computers, and also provided endless classroom resources for teachers... all for about $100 per student annually. As the programming and curriculum developed, Midway ISD has become a leader in best practices for use of technology in the classroom. Not one, but TWO Midway campuses are among 400 world-wide schools recognized by Apple as distinguished schools for continuous innovation in learning, teaching, and the school environment. Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence with documented results that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. Congratulations to Castleman Creek Elementary and Spring Valley Elementary for serving as showcase schools at a national level!
I invite you to read more about each campus’s journey and examples of digital learning in the classroom in their digital books now published in iTunes:
