Shelby County Schools Superintendent Randy Fuller is one of 20 school district superintendents from across the country to receive the inaugural Speak Up Shout Out Awards as 2016 Outstanding Superintendents for their districts’ exceptional participation in the Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning. The awards were announced during AASA’s Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C.



“More than 2,600 districts participated in Speak Up 2015, but these 20 stood out to us for their commitment to raising the voices of their stakeholders, notably students, parents, community members and educators at all levels,” said Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow. “Speak Up, in addition to being a national research project, is a free service open to all schools, and we are thrilled to see so many taking advantage of the online surveys and national reports.”

“Superintendents across the country are dealing with an array of educational technology opportunities and Speak Up offers a platform so they can learn directly from their stakeholders about what students, parents and teachers are looking for now and in the future,” said Daniel A. Domenech, Executive Director of AASA, The School Superintendents Association. “The superintendents being recognized by Project Tomorrow are leaders in the effective use of technology for learning.”
