Dr. Kenneth Spells Attends White House Summit
Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Spells was one of 117 school leaders chosen to talk
tech in the nation’s capital. Spells was part of the first-ever National Connected
Superintendents Summit held at the White House on Wednesday Nov. 19.
The National Connected Superintendents Summit highlighted schools across
the nation that have been a part of President Barrack Obama’s Future Ready Initiative.
Spells believes that he was chosen to attend the summit due to the Alton School District’s 1:1 initiative.
“We have a 1:1 ratio with computers throughout grades 3-11 within the district,” Spells told the Telegraph. “We’ve made quite
a stride over the years with our technology and our broadband.”First and second grade students have one computer per three or four students, Spells said. During the summit, Spells said that schools were able to present their initiatives and information to each other and the Education Department. They were also able to hear the president speak about the Future Initiative.
