LTS Education Systems congratulates advisory board member Dr. Clayton Wilcox on his International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Outstanding Leader Award.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA - Dr. Clayton Wilcox, superintendent of Washington County Public Schools in Maryland and Advisory Board member for educational technology publisher LTS Education Systems (http://www.ltseducation.com), was awarded the Outstanding Leader Award by the International Society for Technology in Education on June 29 at ISTE 2014.

The annual ISTE conference and expo, held this year at the Georgia World Conference Center in Atlanta, is one of the largest, most comprehensive ed tech events and draws an international audience of educators and education leaders who are compelled to transform learning, teaching and leading in the digital age.

The Outstanding Leader Award recognizes one leader outside of the classroom who exemplifies outstanding achievement and leadership in implementing technology to improve education.

The school system has also added and increased the efficiency of wireless Internet hubs to support seamless access to the Internet for students on all devices.

“We are honored to have Dr. Wilcox on our advisory board. His experience and depth of knowledge in utilizing technology to drive achievement is unmatched in the U.S. education market today. The students, parents and teachers of Washington County benefit greatly with Dr. Wilcox as their leader. It is wonderful that ISTE recognizes Dr. Wilcox’s focus on technology,” said Brian M. Shulman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of LTS Education Systems. LTS is publisher of the Stride Academy adaptive game-based learning platform.
