July 7, 2017 -- From providing a range of innovative initiatives, including social-emotional learning programs to giving English language learners quality support, 54 school districts have been named among “District Administrator” magazine’s newest batch of Districts of Distinction this year.

Clarksville-Montgomery County School System was honored in the category of Community/Family partnerships for the Pass and Go Advanced Placement Encouragement program, currently sponsored by Wyatt Johnson Automotive Group, the Clarksville Domino’s Pizza franchise and Beach Oil Co. and the Clarksville-Montgomery County Education Foundation. Premier Medical Group is a past sponsor.

The ninth annual event, coordinated by the Clarksville-Montgomery County Education Foundation, is set for Aug. 3. Students who earned a 3, 4 or 5 on their AP exam qualify to participate.

The honored districts from 23 states were chosen for the national recognition program for their innovative and unique twist on traditional programs.

For many of the honorees, district leaders started with their stakeholders, talking to parents and community members, and then worked in conjunction with other local programs or community groups to help turn their ideas into action.

We’re looking to recognize established initiatives that are yielding quantifiable benefits, and that could be replicated by other districts.
