Google for Education Reference District

The Hollidaysburg Area School District has been honored as a Google for Education Reference District. Google for Education Reference Districts are districts that demonstrate excellence and thought leadership through the innovative use of technology, including Google Workspace for Education and Chromebooks, to drive impact and positive learning outcomes.

The purpose of the Google Reference Program is to showcase excelling schools and for all other schools to learn by example.   HASD is dedicated to the continuous pursuit of academic excellence and strives to lead all surrounding Districts.  HASD hopes to improve the quality of education for all students in the entire region, not just those in our District.   To do so, educational tours will be available for surrounding educators to visit our campus. These tours will provide a direct look at the amazing work our dedicated teachers, staff, and students do every day.
