Clifton, NJ - December 18, 2023 - The Institute for Education Innovation (IEI) announced the winners of its third annual Supes' Choice Awards at the Supes' Choice Awards Gala in New York City on Friday, December 8. ClassLink was honored as a recipient of the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award alongside Allovue (education finance software) for the companies' contributions to moving the edtech industry forward.

IEI is a national school superintendent think tank that bridges district leaders and the K-12 industry to develop solutions to the most significant challenges in public education. The Supes' Choice Awards are the only industry awards judged exclusively by school district superintendents.

"Superintendents sit at the nexus of all stakeholder needs in our public schools, from teaching and learning to business operations," remarked Doug Roberts, founder and CEO of IEI. "ClassLink and Allovue are truly groundbreakers in edtech because of their passion for providing the best technology services for districts and their determination to be effective, enduring partners for school leaders long after a solution is implemented."

"We are honored to be recognized by the Supes' Choice Awards as an inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. This shows that our efforts to build bridges connecting teaching, learning, and technology positively impact education. We're playing a small part in taking edtech in the right direction to serve educators and learners everywhere."

"ClassLink has been with IEI since the beginning, and they've continued to be a valued partner to many of the districts and companies in our ecosystem. Their partners love them, and they understand the power of relationships and trust in building a successful business in K-12. Berj and his team have also been on a journey to model equitable hiring and HR practices for others in the industry, and they've come to share the story of this journey at our events in the past. We're honored to have ClassLink as a thought partner and to be bestowing on them this Supes' Choice Lifetime Achievement Award."

About ClassLink


Institute for Education Innovation

Superintendents are defenders of our children’s right to a high-quality public education and lead their teams toward effective, sustainable solutions to age-old problems. They must be at the center of discussions around when, where, and how innovation will affect teaching and learning. Many education solution providers, funders, researchers, and thought leaders are mission-driven: they do what they do to improve student outcomes. The Institute for Education Innovation bridges gaps between the individuals and organizations committed to seeing students succeed in school and life, creating a safe space for constructive problem-solving and innovative thinking.
