Recognition of Echo Lake as Apple Distinguished School
Jim Golubich, Director of Instructional Technology, presented.

Under the leadership of Principals Mary Koontz and Paul Shanahan, the spirit of collaboration and collegial learning have become core elements of Echo Lake’s professional culture. This is the third time Echo Lake has received this annual honor from Apple Computer for excellence in creating a 21st century learning environment. There are only about 18 schools nationwide that have received the award more than once.
A plaque and banner were awarded to Principals Mary Koontz and Paul Shanahan, who accepted and thanked the community, the School Board, the Superintendent, and the entire District for their support.

“The award is really not just an Echo Lake award; it’s a Shoreline School District award,” stated Ms. Koontz.  
Mr. Shanahan added that one thing that makes Shoreline so amazing is the number of very talented tech savvy staff available to every classroom in the District.  He thanked the Board for the “safety net” of employees that they have helped to create and implement.
