Two CUSD Teachers Named Rodel Exemplary Teacher Semifinalists
Earlier this month two CUSD teachers were selected as semifinalists for the 2016 Rodel Exemplary Teacher Award -- Sylvia Wilson of Hartford Sylvia Encinas Elementary School and Lauren Delfino-Karl of San Marcos Elementary School. In the coming weeks, Rodel will be conducting classroom visits and personal interviews with the semifinalists. Good luck to Sylvia and Lauren!
CUSD Community Relations Department has been nominated for six Emmy Awards. The honor comes after the district's media production department, under the direction of Michael Holland, entered a documentary video about district history into the Rocky Mountain Southwest Regional Emmy Awards competition. The program, called The History of Chandler Schools, Part 3: Summary of a Century, was judged by members of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and deemed worthy of nominations for the coveted award. Emmy trophies will be handed out to selected recipients at an awards event on October 17.
The program is narrated by John Prothro, teacher at Perry High.
The nominated video is the last of a three-part series on the history of the district. The CUSD production team took home three awards for part 2 of the series in 2014. All three parts can be seen on the CET99.org Youtube channel.
