Announcing our Speak Up Loud and Clear schools!

Top participating schools from Speak Up 2014


With Speak Up 2015 just around the corner, we would like to thank our past Speak Up participants! We greatly appreciate all the support and encouragement that went in to making Speak Up 2014 such a success - without you, Speak Up would not be possible.

Last year over 521,000 Students, Parents, Educators and members of the community representing over 8,000 schools nationwide participated in Speak Up 2014. To honor our top participating schools and districts, Project Tomorrow has nominated the top Speak Up schools for our Speak Up Loud and Clear recognition program. Speak Up Loud and Clear, formerly known as Speak Up 200, highlights schools that are effectively incorporating Speak Up data into their local decision-making. Each year, finalists are selected based on total student participation, length of time involved with Speak Up, and use of data in local decision making.

We are proud to recognize 244 Speak Up Loud and Clear schools for their strong participation during Speak Up 2014! The complete list of Speak Up Loud and Clear schools are highlighted on our website - click here to view the full list.


Based upon total participation and demonstrated commitment to engaging their stakeholders in local decisions on education issues, five school districts were also recognized for special distinctions. The top 5 school districts from Speak Up 2014 are:

Klein Independent School District (Texas) 
Onslow County Schools (North Carolina) 
Wake County Schools (North Carolina) 
Anaheim City School District (California) 
Hamilton Southeastern Schools (Indiana)

Congratulations to our Speak Up Loud and Clear schools and districts!

Don't forget - Speak Up 2015 starts in a few days! Spread the word about the survey to your school(s) to encourage strong participation and a chance at being recognized as a Speak Up Loud and Clear school for Speak Up 2015! And for our current Speak Up Loud and Clear schools, this is the perfect opportunity to secure your spot as a top school for another year.
