Superintendent's Notes

March 25, 2022

CCPS Community:

Spring is always an exciting time. One of my favorite events of this season is our Teacher of the Year recognition process. This year, we have 26 nominees from across our county who are each outstanding representatives of CCPS and the teaching profession. The CCPS Teacher of the Year will be selected at our annual gala next month. Please take a few moments to meet each of the nominees in the video below.

Next week we will begin the fourth marking period of the school year. I know that it has been a year of celebrations and challenges, but we are almost to the finish line! Whether you are a parent, family member, CCPS employee, or community member, thank you for your support of our students!
