As the first fully accredited School District in Florida, Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) continues to be a leader in delivering excellence in education to every student, every school, every day. With more than 30,000 employees, BCPS is proud of those individuals who have dedicated themselves to ensuring the future success of our more than 261,000 students and 110,000 adult learners. The Caliber Awards program provides the opportunity for the District to recognize employees who have excelled as teachers, principals, assistant principals and school-related employees.
New this year, the process for nominating principals and assistant principals begins earlier as seen on the Schedule of Activities. With this change, schools have an extended period to select their teachers and school-related employees of the year, and may begin the nomination process early. The updated Caliber Awards Nomination Process Guidelines provides details to assist schools and departments.
For more information regarding the Caliber Awards program, contact Dr. Carolyn Stewart, District Community Relations Coordinator, at email@example.com or 754-321-2300.
Below are the documents for the nomination process.
