Stephenville ISD was named as one of only five districts nationwide to serve as a Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools cohort June 2015. As such, Digital Promise coaches facilitated opportunities for SISD leaders to witness and learn first-hand from digital learning experts. Following the passage of a TRE in November 2016, SISD set in motion a 3-year, multi-phased initiative centered on enhancing academic learning by way of digital-based innovations and resources. Coined iChampion, our 1:1 initiative leverages the power and mobility of technology to create a personalized, student-centric environment. Rooted in tried-and-true pedagogical best practices, iChampion delivers personalized learning and technology skills infused and integrated into the daily teaching and learning process.
Stephenville ISD was selected to join the prestigious League of Innovative schools in September 2016. SISD’s iChampion initiative is poised to serve as a model for digital learning and classroom innovation.
“We believe iChampion to be the embodiment of our motto: developing the potential of every student, every day,” says Superintendent Matt Underwood. “Our board of trustees set forth six goals to challenge and frame our academic efforts; a commonality among them is to prepare students for future success. There is no denying that our world is steeped in technology. It is critical that we underscore and support the curriculum with the necessary 21st Century skills and tools to thrive.”
