The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th grade mathematics or science (including computer science) teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Up to 108 teachers are recognized each year.
Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States, a trip to Washington D.C. to attend a series of recognition events and professional development opportunities, and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation.
Awardees join an active network of outstanding educators from throughout the nation. Since 1983, more than 4,300 teachers have been recognized for their contributions in the classroom and to their profession. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.

When the school year begins in 2015, students in 6th, 8th and 9th grades will receive a laptop computer for classroom instruction. In the 2016-17 school year, STEP-UP will expand to include all students in 5th through 12th grades.
“We are excited to bring the STEP-UP Program to our schools,” said ACSC Technology Director Jason Brames. “Technology based tools offer greater opportunities for collaborative learning and will enhance teaching and learning in our schools.”
ACSC teachers are receiving specialized professional development and will use up-to-date technology curriculum in the classroom. When students receive their computers, they will receive age-appropriate instruction regarding digital citizenship. Parent education sessions will be held at the schools for Avon families to ensure a smooth transition to STEP-UP.
To learn more about the STEP-UP Program, please visit www.avon-schools.org/stepup. There is a video, FAQ and other details to assist Avon families.
