We have many great achievements in public education in the state, and we need to celebrate those accomplishments. To honor these achievements, guidelines for recognitions have been developed.
Upon return of the recommendation form, recognitions will be assigned to one of the three categories. The person submitting the nomination form will be notified as to which category of achievement the nominee will be recognized. Please do not invite your nominee until selection has been confirmed by the Communications Office.
- State Board of Education recognitions, which occur during monthly Board meetings, are reserved for individuals, groups, or schools that have earned national, regional, or statewide awards, honors, and achievements. These recognitions are designed to highlight the exceptional work in public education across Mississippi.
- At the discretion of the State Superintendent of Education, a congratulatory letter to those who have an achievement that deserves congratulations but may not qualify for Board recognition. The Superintendent’s letter will be personalized and mailed to the recipient’s home. Details about the nominee and the purpose of the recognition must be submitted after notification about this category of achievement.
