Leading for Digital Equity: Award-Winning Community Engagement Strategies
Show Notes

This edWeb podcast is sponsored by ClassLink and co-hosted by CoSN, AASA, and edWeb.net.
The webinar recording can be accessed here.

Digital equity has proven to be one of the most critical issues of our times. Lessons learned over the past two years have taught education leaders that they cannot solve the challenges of digital equity in their school districts without actively engaging a wide range of community groups. CoSN annually awards a school district with the association’s Community Leadership Award for Digital Equity to honor and recognize those districts that are working to eliminate inequities and narrow the digital access gap. Louisa County Public Schools in Virginia is the recipient of CoSN’s 2022 Community Leadership Award for Digital Equity. 

The superintendent of Louisa County Public Schools is joined by the district’s director of technology along with the district’s director of STEAM and innovation and CoSN’s CEO as featured guest panelists in this edWeb podcast. The district leaders share the strategies they use to lead their work with their community in leveraging technology innovations to meet the needs of all students. The development of the district’s Wireless on Wheels (WOW) program to provide high-speed access to previously unconnected areas is one of the innovations that are shared. 

This edWe podcast is of high value to superintendents, PreK-12 school and district leaders, aspiring school leaders, chief technology officers, and other information technology education leaders.
