Would you like to join the 37 schools that achieved Star Recognition in the 2021 certification cycle? Our new Digital Schools Star Recognition highlights certified schools that have made significant progress in completing the new slate of Sustainable Jersey Digital Schools actions. Twelve new certification actions that span everything from professional development for educators to news and media literacy for students, equitable access, personalized learning, data safety and security and more have been added. In addition, existing actions in the School Culture and Climate and Student Learning categories have been updated to include digital learning elements and guidance, and can also be submitted for Digital Schools credit. The goal is to support schools in their digital learning planning and implementation in order to help them prepare all students for college and career in an ever-evolving digital world.
