Wilmington Area School District is proud to announce its acceptance into the exclusive Google Reference program!
Google for Education Reference Districts are districts that demonstrate excellence and thought leadership through the innovative use of technology, including G Suite for Education (formerly known as Google Apps for Education) and Chromebooks, to drive impact and positive learning outcomes.
The purpose of the Google Reference Program is to showcase excelling schools and for all other schools to learn by example. Wilmington is dedicated to the continuous pursuit of academic excellence and strives to lead all surrounding Districts. WASD hopes to improve the quality of education for all students in the entire region, not just those in our District. To do so, educational tours will be available for surrounding educators to visit our campus. These tours will provide an on-hands experience at the amazing work our dedicated teachers, staff, and students do every day. Tour info is below
How many other Google Reference Districts are there?
There are less than 250 in the world! (see our excitement?)
