I hope this message finds you well. Please allow this email message to serve as a reminder that the deadline for submitting school district nominee applications for Mississippi Administrator of the Year and Mississippi Teacher of the Year is Friday, January 11, 2019, by no later than 5:00 P.M. We have received a number of applications but, not from all local districts in the state as of this morning. Each school district should nominate one administrator and one teacher. The procedure used to select the DAOY and DTOY is determined by the school district.
The program’s rules are outlined in the official applications attached herein. Suggestions for local programs have also been included in the applications.
The Mississippi Teacher of the Year will have additional duties throughout the year. By signing and submitting an entry, each superintendent agrees to the following:
- To release the educator to make official appearances if he/she is selected as the Mississippi Teacher of the Year, and
- To allow the DTOY to participate in future events sponsored by the Office of Teaching and Leading and agree to provide a substitute teacher on these occasions.
Thank you for your assistance and support of the 2019 Mississippi Administrator and Teacher of the Year Awards Program. Should you have any questions, please contact the Office Teaching and Leading at 601-359-3631 or Sandra Hilliard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
