Dr. David Hoffert, superintendent of Warsaw Community Schools, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Education as one of 100 top school leaders from across America to participate in the first-ever National Connected Superintendents Summit Wednesday, Nov. 19 at the White House.
Hoffert is among exemplary local school chiefs who will be recognized for their leadership in helping transition their districts to digital learning. This unique conference will bring together officials from throughout America to share with one another and the Education Department promising approaches to using technology in classes.
In June 2013, the White House announced the ConnectED Initiative, starting with a goal of connecting 99 percent of students to next-generation connectivity within five years. Model schools and districts across the country are using technology to create personalized learning environments; technology will play an increasingly crucial role in the future.
“As the superintendent of Warsaw Community Schools, I am blessed each day by the dedicated educational staff of the schools, strong parental involvement, visionary school board, community partnerships, and motivated students enriching others while following their dreams. WCS has a special and unique story to tell, and I feel fortunate that a part of my position is getting to share our story on a local, state, and national level.”
Hoffert goes on to say, “The news of our corporation’s work and advancements in technological and STEM education has traveled, and the result was a special invitation by the White House. It is a great honor to share the local story of WCS to a national audience.”
