How many representatives may my school send and how to register?

Due to our limited budget for this year’s awards ceremony, it is not possible to increase the number of school representatives beyond the number of representatives outlined below.

Each school may be represented by the building principal and one teacher (or staff member) at the ceremony. If the principal at the time of the school’s nomination for the award (i.e., the principal at the time of nomination/application) is no longer the current principal, then the principal at the time of nomination is also invited.  School District superintendents will receive a separate invitation and will be included as part of the official school representatives if they choose to attend the ceremony.  The maximum number of representatives for each school will be either three representatives (Principal, Teacher/Staff and Superintendent) or four representatives (Principal, Principal at time of nomination, Teacher/Staff and Superintendent). 

The principal is responsible for registering all representatives. Please register all your school’s official school representatives to the ceremony by Friday, October 26, 2018.  Please be sure to bring your registration confirmation email with you for your on-site registration. 

Your email filtering programs may treat your confirmation email as spam/junk mail. Please check your spam filters if you do not receive your confirmation after you register in the online system. 

In the event your school is not sending any representatives, or you need to cancel your registration, please contact me by email aba.kumi@ed.gov so we can ensure we note that in our planning for the awards presentation.
