St. Lucie County Superintendent and Florida Afterschool Network Panel of Champion Member Michael Lannon is a finalist in the Florida Department of Education District Data of the Year Award.
The program recognizes Florida school district superintendents who are leading the way in using education data to drive student improvement. District Data Leaders strive to communicate the relevance of education data to teachers, administrators, parents, students, and other stakeholders while demonstrating leadership regarding data distribution. District Data Leaders continually seek new methods to improve the use of data in their communities and schools, and employ innovative data strategies that help to inform instruction and move student achievement forward.
The District Data Leader of the Year Program seeks to recognize these data leaders for their extraordinary efforts and their dedication to making every one of their students successful.
Lannon established policies that set the stage for implementation of clearly defined curricular and performance standards, leading to the acquisition of the Learning Village curriculum management system. This system serves as a comprehensive repository of tagged digital assets that are aligned with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and Common Core State Standards, including curriculum and instructional resources.
“I'm honored to be in the company of such outstanding educational and civic leaders as my follow nominees,” Lannon said.
Congrats, Michael, and good luck!
