The Lakeland Central School District has been awarded two of the three Pioneer Awards given by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) for outstanding technology integration. The LHRIC Pioneer Awards are presented every year to a school district, teacher, and a director of technology from the Westchester, Rockland and Putnam county region. The awards are in recognition for innovative uses of technology that change teaching and learning. The district award recognizes the work that Lakeland has done to create a culture of communication and collaboration through the effective use of videoconferencing and digital tools. “This award recognizes the outstanding work being done by the staff in our schools to use technology to enhance student learning. Our classrooms are enriched through contact and collaboration with teachers, technology experts and other students both within and without of the district,” said Superintendent Dr. George Stone.
Dwayne Hoffmann, Lakeland’s Director of Technology, was selected as Outstanding Director of Technology for his continual efforts to keep Lakeland at the forefront. Mr. Jeremy Luft, of the Ossining School District, was a co-winner of the award. The awards were given out at the 18th Annual Pioneer Awards Ceremony May 20.
