The National School Boards Association, E.Republic's Center for Digital Education and Converge magazine conduct a survey every year to recognize the use of digital technology by school districts around the nation. Every public school district in the U.S. is eligible to participate.

Schools are asked to answer survey questions about their use of digital technology to interface with students, parents and other entities. The school districts are then separated into three different categories: large, medium and small.
