CACSE is pleased to call for nominations for the next “Rise Up” Award, presented to educators and support personnel for their extraordinary efforts in assisting children in special education. Nominations can be made for anyone in the special education system who has truly gone to extraordinary efforts to contribute to the growth, happiness and general well-being of our children in a compassionate and caring way.
We seek to recognize any:
- Paraeducator or other educational assistants
- School support staff
This yearly award is presented during a spring recognition ceremony which all educators and families are welcome to attend and celebrate this achievement.
The Rise Up Award is CACSE’s way of recognizing and honoring those dedicated professionals who give so much of themselves for our children.
We ask that all parents and caregivers of children with special needs consider nominating worthy individuals and school teams for this award. Winners receive a stipend we call the “Teacher Toolbox,” which provides educational and therapeutic supplies, devices and materials for their students and classroom.
