Apple Distinguished Program Award

On Tuesday, March 20, representatives from Apple "officially" presented our Apple Distinguished Program Award for Project iAchieve at the Creighton School District Governing Board meeting. Five representatives from Apple were in attendance, including Apple Education Consultant, Dr. Dan McCormack. Dr. McCormack nominated Creighton's Project iAchieve for the award. We proudly join the 49 programs that have been given this award over the past 5 years.

Dr. McCormack presented the award to our district superintendent, Dr. Boyle. We were honored to have Dr. McCormack attend the meeting to present the award but even more honored as we listened to his presentation documenting the success of our project.

Three of our iAchieve classroom teachers were in attendance also and shared the posiitive influence iPods have had on students academic achievement and technology literacy. Several students wrote letters about how much they love having iPods. One of the students attended the meeting and read her letter to the governing board. It was really impressive to have them all in attendance with us.

We are looking forward to continuing and expanding Project iAchieve over the coming years. Thanks Apple!
