St. Charles Parish Schools were featured in the National School Boards Association's Walk of Excellence at the NSBA's 67th Annual Conference in San Francisco.

The Walk of Excellence is an opportunity for school board members from across the nation to meet face-to-face with some of the country's best, brightest, and most innovative educators, and hear about their successful programs and initiatives.

St. Charles was one of only 20 districts selected from across the country.

Representing St. Charles schools were Kendall Stall, information technology services director, and Stephanie Steib, the district's systems analyst for instructional support.

The title of the St. Charles Parish Schools' display was "Back to the Future: How We Developed a School of the Future."

Visitors were taken on a journey of how the school of the future, the Satellite Center, came into existence.

The exhibit featured a colorful backdrop with the district credo, a slide show with pictures of the students in action, and two kiosk systems.

The kiosk systems, an authentic project developed by Satellite Center students was set up so participants could use touch screens to take a virtual tour of the Satellite Center, view video explaining how the center came into being and career paths that are offered there.

The visitors were also given the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the presenters about the Satellite Center and other school initiatives.

They were given a copy of the kiosk system on CD and a brochure of the Satellite Center for future reference. Hundreds of Board Members and Superintendents from across the country experienced NSBA's Walk of Excellence.
