Gurnee School District 56 to
Host Regional Summit on Digital Learning

On June 15 and 16, Gurnee School District 56 will host a regional summit on digital learning sponsored by the Future Ready initiative. The intensive two-day event will be held in the District’s new Prairie Trail School and will include 200 educators and regional experts from throughout the Midwest. 

Future Ready is a national effort led by the U.S. Department of Education and the Alliance for Excellent Education. The program helps school districts maximize digital learning opportunities and prepare students for success in college, a career and citizenship. Gurnee School District 56 was chosen to host the Summit due, in part, to the District’s award-winning technology programs, including its 1:1 iPad initiative.

“We are very excited to host this event and believe that it validates the outstanding things that are occurring in the Gurnee District 56 schools,” said Superintendent, Dr. John Hutton.
