 Awards for Outstanding Service to Public Education

blue_band.jpgPSSC confers Awards for Outstanding Service to Public Education in three categories: Excellence in Administration and Supervision (the William E. Caldwell Award); Excellence in Instruction (the Walter J. DeLacy Award); and, Excellence in Support of the Public Schools for board members, volunteers, or business/community entities (the William S. Vincent Award).

Nominations for the William E. Caldwell Award are considered based on a diversity of accomplishments as well as the obvious contribution to the broad field of administration and supervision. Years of administrative service and level of education are also considered.

The recipient of the Walter J. DeLacy Award for Excellence in Instruction demonstrates ongoing accomplishments both in and out of the classroom with service to a variety of students, and has contributed to improving instruction beyond the individual classroom. The nominee’s years of service and level of education contribute to the final decision.

Finally, the William S. Vincent Award for Excellence in Support of the Public Schools is given to an individual, or group of individuals, who demonstrate ongoing support that reaches a broad range of students and schools.

An awards committee reviews each of the nominees and evaluates them based on a pre-established set of criteria. Only the information received with the nomination packet is considered.
