Greeneville City School District recently received an Honorable Mention at the 2016 Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) Annual Conference awards reception. The award recognizes a team in a school district or consortium of school districts for its outstanding achievements using technology to improve student learning.

“The awards committee was deeply impressed by your team’s leadership,” said Fran McTigrit, CoSN Awards Committee Chair. “It is an honor to inform you that you have been selected as an Honorable Mention for CoSN’s 2016 Team Achievement Award.”

The Greeneville City School District was also recognized as ninth in the nation for innovative uses of technology by the Center for Digital Education this month, and the information technology team was recognized as the Information Technology Team of the Year Award by the Tennessee Educational Technology Association (TETA) in November.

“For our technology team to be recognized for their outstanding service to our district brings me great joy,” said Dr. Jeff Moorhouse, Director of Greeneville City Schools. “These individuals work tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that our network and devices work on a daily basis. Because they work behind the scenes, they do not always get the attention they deserve. Our district does not get recognized as the 9th best district in the country for innovation with technology without the support of a world class tech team! It is hard for our teachers to be innovative if their devices do not work. One goes hand in hand with the other. I am very proud of ALL the individuals that work together to make GCS such an outstanding system.”

On April 21, the Greeneville City Schools will host a Digital Transformation Community Event where student groups will present the various ways they are using technology to enhance their learning. Everyone is invited to attend this event at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center starting at 6:00 p.m.

GCS Digital Transformation

The Greeneville City School District believes it is imperative that students living and learning in the district master and routinely practice 21st century skills that are relevant to both present and future success. To date, GCS has purchased over 2,000 student devices through the Reach4IT campaign and other grants. These devices are being utilized and incorporated into curriculum in a variety of ways by enthusiastic GCS educators. Starting in 2016, all students in grades 3-8 have a laptop to use in the classroom. GCS is committed to meeting the needs of our students in a student-centered, engaging learning environment.
