Southern Columbia Area school officials recently participated in a panel discussion regarding technology use in schools and educational equity as part of a Congressional Briefing held at the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. Each year, Project Tomorrow hosts at least one Congressional Briefing in the nation's capital to share the national findings from their research. They bring "the voices of all the students, parents, educators and community members to the Hill to be sure our policymakers are hearing directly from those most impacted by national education policy." This year's briefing presented the findings of the 2017 Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning which was based on survey responses from 340,927 students, 34,833 teachers and 23,159 parents received between October 2017 and January 2018. 
Superintendent Paul Caputo and High School Principal Jim Becker served on a panel of students, teachers and administrators who offered commentary on the Digital Learning Project's findings. They are pictured with Project Tomorrow CEO, Jule Evans, Ed.D.
