the first-ever Great District for Great Teachers initiative! We join just eight
districts named as Great Districts and four other honorable mentions, based on
the excellence of our system in developing, valuing and supporting our best
The award affirms how our teachers, principals,
administrators and other members of our district family have collaborated on
effective policies and practices, which makes IPS a great place for great
teachers to work.
The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) created this
award to recognize and celebrate districts doing the most to attract, support
and retain great teachers. NCTQ is a national nonprofit organization committed
to modernizing the teaching profession so that all children have effective
teachers and every teacher gains the opportunity to become effective.
This recognition shows that IPS’ programs are helping our teachers do more for our students.
