Excellence for All is more than a motto; it is a way to ensure the needs of every child are met.
Some students are working to overcome language barriers, while others face the adversity of a learning disability. Some students require the rigor of more challenging curriculum, while others need extra support to deal with traumatic events in the lives.
Every student is different, and – for Enid Public Schools – all means ALL.
The Excellence for All Teacher Award, sponsored by Dan and Karen Randall, honored EPS educators who go above and beyond to ensure the needs of all students are met.
Two $500 awards were granted to two teachers (from two different schools) each month. Schools were honored in the order of their socioeconomic need, based on their free- and reduced-lunch percentages.
