VUSD Superintendent Goes to Washingtonfc
Vista Unified School District (VUSD) Superintendent Devin Vodicka was recently selected by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) as one of 100 top school leaders to participate in a National Connected Superintendents Summit at the White House as part of the Future Ready Initiative. The conference brought together officials from all over the nation to share with each other regarding approaches to using technology in classrooms. Key themes throughout the day were to ensure high-speed internet connectivity for all students, access to high-quality digital learning resources, and meaningful professional development for teachers.
Director of the DOE’s Technology Richard Culatta said, “The Future Ready Initiative highlights the critical role of district leaders in setting a vision and creating the environment where educators and students access the tools, content, and expertise necessary for thriving in a connected world.” VUSD Superintendent Vodicka added, “I was inspired and energized by the commitment and enthusiasm of the leaders that are involved in these efforts. Our vision at VUSD is to be the model of educational excellence and innovation – this was an important step on that journey. It was a great privilege to represent our district as we engage in the transformation of public education as we transition into the digital age. For our district to be one of the select few that was invited to this event is a wonderful reflection on the hard work of our students, families, and staff.”
