You can say thank you to a teacher who has impacted you or your child by nominating him/her for the Inspire Award. This award was created to recognize teachers who go above and beyond in the classroom. Parents, students, pre-service teachers, or classroom volunteers may submit nominations. The Inspire Award allows the school board and community to regularly and publicly celebrate the impact that RCPS teachers make each day, whether on a particular child or class, or by encouraging a future teacher.
A teacher may be recognized once during a school year and submissions must be received ten days prior to a board meeting. The person making the nomination will be invited to share his/her nomination essay of up to 200 words with the school board, and will make the presentation of a certificate to the honored teacher.
The nomination form can be found on the RCPS Homepage under the Parent/Student tab or by clicking here. REFI supports this initiative by providing a small token of appreciation to each teacher recognized during the school board meetings.
Congratulations to the teachers recognized during the Sept. 9, 2019 School Board Meeting
