Delaware charters to congratulate themselves
The Delaware Charter Schools Network is accepting nominations for its awards with the acutely ironic name “IDEA Awards.” (Click here for the nomination form.)
The Delaware Charter Schools Network (DCSN) is seeking to shine the spotlight on innovative programs for their annual IDEA awards.
“Bringing to light those programs so other teachers, other leaders can see them and go, ‘Wait a minute! That would be great for my kids,” said Kendall Massett, director of the DCN.
But no one program should be duplicated, instead, it should be modeled.
“You have different kids, you have different people. It needs to be adapted to you community, to your kids, and to your ability to make those things happen,” Massett said.
Awards are given in various categories to school leaders, teachers, parents and students.
There is a long list of award categories:
Community Ties Award: For a school, staff member(s), student(s), or a community organization
Cornerstone Award: For a Parent or Group of Parents
Impact Award: For a Charter School Leader
Giving Back Award: For a Charter School Student or Alumnus
Innovation Award: For a Teacher or Group of Teachers (Elementary, Middle, and High School)
Dedication Award: For a School Staff Member or Group of Staff Members (Elementary, Middle, and High School)
