Mid-America Technology Center was awarded the OkACTE Gold Star award at the 2023 Oklahoma Summit Conference. This marks Mid-America’s 16th year to receive this prestigious award.
The Gold Star program is designed to recognize technology center districts that have met rigid and demanding criteria, demonstrating a high level of excellence. It provides recognition to districts with exemplary programs designed to meet a broad spectrum of community needs.
The Gold Star recognition was based on a one-year period from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022. To receive the award, the technology center must meet a comprehensive set of criteria in seven standards: Program Standards, Student Services, Communications and Marketing, Sending School Relationships, Professional Activities, Business and Industry Services, and Special Initiatives. When evidence is provided that these standards have been met or exceeded, this establishes the technology center as being exceptional in service to its technology center area.
Living up to the standards set by the Gold Star School criteria is something that all Mid-America Technology Center employees strive for every day.
