Rise Up Awards

The St. Mary’s County Citizens’ Advisory Committee for Special Education (CACSE) Rise Up Awards.

The Rise Up Award recognizes a teacher, administrator, therapist, assistant to an educator or anyone in the Special Education system that has truly gone to extraordinary efforts to contribute, in a compassionate and caring way, to the growth, happiness, and general well-being of our children with disabilities.  If you are a parent or caregiver that would like to nominate a person or group of people that has touched your child’s life, please fill out the information below.  When educators go above and beyond to help our children “Rise Up” and exceed in life, it is our pleasure to recognize and thank them for the amazing jobs that they do.

Check our website in March for updates on how to nominate someone for a Rise Up Award,.
