The National Conference on Digital Convergence is hosted annually by Modern Teacher to share information on the methodology of districts who are working to achieve personalized, blended, and competency-based learning at scale. The Modern Teacher network consists of 192 districts and 790 schools within 26 states across the country. Combs has been working to transform its classrooms into learner-centered spaces for the last several years through its #Forward movement, and was recognized for these efforts in 2020 when they were recognized by Modern Teacher as a District of Distinction.
"We're immensely proud of the work that our district is doing empower our learners and provide a modern, personalized learning experience," said Dr. Greg Wyman, Superintendent. "To see Diana, Santa, and Dorsey recognized for their dedication and leadership on this national scale is well deserved, and a perfect demonstration of the incredible things happening at Combs."
