The Madison Metropolitan School District will hold its first ever Excellence with Equity Awards today at 7:00 p.m. at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. The awards will recognize staff who exemplify excellence and equity in their support of students.


“As a district, we believe in excellence and equity – that we must hold all children and all adults to high expectations and then provide the unique support they need to meet that high bar,” Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham said. “We are excited for the opportunity to celebrate some of our staff that bring those values to life in our schools.”


Staff members will be recognized in 14 categories, including teacher collaboration team, family and community engagement, school leadership team and teacher of the year.
