At T+L2, a special Trailblazer Award will be given to Community Consolidated District #15 of Palatine, Ill., a long-time member of NSBA’s Technology Leadership Network. Recognized as a Salute District in 1998, the district is a deserving candidate for this year’s Trailblazer Award. Trailblazers are districts committed to charting new pathways to success and sharing their lessons so others may learn from their experience. As a 2003 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award winner, the district’s leadership team assessed its stakeholder needs and desires, set measurable objectives, implemented data-driven decision-making, and aligned performance goals across the organization, setting the pace for improved student learning and stronger organizational performance. The Trailblazer Award recognizes the tremendous dedication, vision, and leadership exemplified by the district’s efforts to reach such a milestone.
