PACAPE State Private Teacher & Administrator Awards

PACAPE Non-Public School Educator Recognition Program
Event Profile: PA CAPE membership recognizes the value of effective teaching and leadership that promote proficiency in student learning, and is successful to establish a positive school culture. Educator excellence is worthy of honor and recognition. With this premise, PA CAPE has developed an annual program for the recognition of leadership excellence in outstanding classroom teachers and administrators in Pennsylvania non-public schools.

Program Model: The PACAPE Program will consist of three stages: Event Announcement, Application Collection and Evaluation, and Award Recognition and Ceremony.

1. The announcement and application process will be completed online via the PACAPE website by following the Survey Monkey link. Advertisement of the event will be through each of the PACAPE Private School Association Members. The initial program announcement and request for submissions will be announced in January and submissions will be accepted until the last day of February. Judges will be appointed by the PACAPE Board.

2. The evaluation process will be done electronically, by the PACAPE Judging Board who will manage and screen the submissions. "All judges will read each of the entries and evaluate the nominees using a standard rubric that mirrors the survey questions. The top three nominees for each category will be asked to submit an essay. These will be reviewed by the entire panel of judges in a fresh final round of judging. The first round of judging will be completed by March 15th and the final judging will be completed by April 1st.

3. Announcement of winners will be completed by April 15th. All finalists will be notified by March 31st of their entrance into the final status. All winners will receive tickets to the final awards event for themselves and their guests. Winners must be present at the Harrisburg event to qualify (NO exceptions). Award event will be held at a special Reception at the Capitol on May 4th following the EITC Birthday Rally. The reception will be attended by legislators, sponsors, PACAPE officials, Association officials, award finalists, and other guests.
