RCPS Board Taps Shifflett as Director of Innovation and Learning
While using laptops on school rooftops may not be an innovation on Dr. Larry Shifflett's agenda for the RCPS school division, he is the embodiment of our technology motto, "Always Connected, 100% Charged" and will lend guidance in instruction to the RCPS "digital conversion" initiative. His knowledge, charisma, and leadership skills that have made him so successful at SRES will serve the division well in his new role as Director of Innovation and Learning for RCPS.
