Project RED Announces 20 Signature Districts for Education Technology Guidance

Strategic allies benefit from collaboration with Project RED’s expertise and resources

MASON, Mich., November 12, 2012 – As the leader in one-to-one computing implementation research, Project RED has made a commitment to bring its research practices to action. As part of this promise, Project RED today is announcing all 20 of the Project RED Signature Districts. Through a competitive application process, these outstanding districts were chosen to receive Project RED’s support and guidance on education technology implementations, focusing specifically on one-to-one computing deployments.

During the 2012-2013 school year, Project RED will offer the 20 Signature Districts customized support throughout the technology implementation process while encouraging collaboration among these education leaders. Project RED will encourage each Signature District to align its direction with the research-based strategies of the Project RED Design™, a blueprint for implementing technology-based school reform. For a period of three years, each district will publish its findings to the Signature District community and will serve as best-practice models for other districts interested in successful technology planning.

“We know that districts are challenged by large-scale project planning,” said Tom Greaves, Project RED team member. “The Project RED Design will provide the entire community with both tools and a timeline for implementation.”

The 20 Project RED Signature Districts are:

  • Charleston County Schools, S.C.
  • Clark County School District, Nev.
  • East Noble School Corporation, Ind.
  • Ferndale School District, Wash.
  • Huntsville City Schools, Ala.
  • Joplin Schools, Mo.
  • Kent School District, Wash.
  • Kuna School District, Idaho
  • Natick Public Schools, Mass.
  • Owensboro Public Schools, Ky.
  • Poway Unified School District, Calif.
  • Quakertown Community School District, Pa.
  • Reeds Springs School District, Mo.
  • Richland School District Two, S.C.
  • Salisbury Township Schools, Pa.
  • Sioux City Community Schools, Iowa
  • Southern Lehigh School District, Pa.
  • Springfield Public Schools, N.J.
  • Sunnyside School District, Ariz.
  • Walled Lake Consolidated Schools, Mich.

“These 20 signature districts have made a definitive commitment to improving student learning and providing personalized instruction through the meaningful integration of technology, ongoing professional development and administrator support,” said Leslie Wilson, Project RED team member. “We were impressed with their initial plans, and we look forward to helping the teachers and district leaders use outcomes of the Project RED research to move their initiatives to the next level.”

The results of the Signature District efforts will be shared widely so that other districts can take advantage of this practical, replicable research.


About Project RED

In 2010, Project RED conducted a survey of technology programs in 1,000 U.S. schools, which is the first and only national research focusing on academic results and the financial implication of education technology. The research shows that, if effectively implemented, technology programs can lead to improved student achievement and significant return on investment. Based on those findings, Project RED created a replicable design for school districts to make the best possible use of technology in a learning environment.

Project RED offers a variety of ways districts can benefit from its research, including in-person institutes November 15-16, 2012 in Auburn, Ala. and December 3-4, 2012 in River Edge, N.J., a series of 10 implementation webinars, online tools and resources, and Project RED’s signature district program. Thanks to sponsor support, the majority of Project RED’s resources are offered at low- or no-cost to educators. Learn more at, or follow us on Twitter at @Project RED or on Facebook at
