a. Only the local school will do any “judging” to decide which three/six projects to share with the DSO and which three/six projects to share with the PDO.
b. A DSO or the PDO will do no judging; only showcasing.
School level provide:
“Certificate of Participation” signed by the school Principal. Template will be provided by the PDO to the school.
DSO level provide:
“Certificate of Merit” signed by the District Superintendent. Template will be provided by the PDO to each DSO.
PDO level provide
“Certificate of Merit” signed by DoDDS Pacific DDESS Guam Director. Signed and completed certificates will be sent from the PDO to the showcased ‘authors’ via the school mail.
The Pacific Director’s Office (PDO) is supplying the school with an example of a Project Rubric that can be used.
A local TILT committee may be used to determine which entries will be sent to the DSO and PDO.
The projects sent to the DSO do not have to be the same as the projects sent to the PDO.
A school can send up to three (3) entries to the DSO and PDO.
Schools with a student population over 800 are welcome to send up to six (6) entries to the DSO and PDO.
Only the first three entries (or 6 entries – depends of school enrollment) will be used for the Showcase.
All submissions will be submitted electronically at https://ed.dpi.pac.dodea.edu/sites/CTS/default.aspx

Use of Entries--The school Curriculum Technology Showcase review committee, DSO, and PDO reserve the right to make copies of an entry for dissemination through DoDEA Intranets, Internets, publications, broadcasts, and other modes of presentation.
