MCCE@SU 2015 Awards Program for

"2014 - 2015 School of the Year"

October 8, 2015

Stevenson University, Owings Mills Campus

Rockland Center

The Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University (MCCE@SU) is planning the 2015 Awards Conference to honor schools throughout MD who have instituted, developed, and are continuing comprehensive character education initiatives in their school communities. It is a goal of MCCE@SU to promote Character Education throughout the state of Maryland. This year we are encouraging every school throughout the state that has developed a comprehensive character education program to apply for this prestigious award. Our goal is to encourage all schools that have a character education program to apply for recognition and a MCCE@SU School of the Year award.


The recognized schools in 2015 will receive a specially designed School of the Year Character Education banner which can be displayed proudly along with a certificate of recognition from the Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University. These recognized schools will be honored for their leadership at the 2015 MCCE@SU Awards Conference on October 8th. However, it should be noted that the Maryland Center for Character Education and Stevenson University strongly believes that the most important reward is the satisfaction of observing the strengthening of character in Maryland’s youth.

2015 ASCD Conference on Teaching Excellence


Explore Bold New Directions in Teaching Practice

Your top opportunity all year to explore the best new teaching practices is this year's ASCD Conference on Teaching Excellence. In just two and a half days, you'll get a whole career's worth of new strategies and solutions to use in any grade level or subject.

Learn what's working in classrooms and schoolwide.
You know that trying new ideas and experimenting with your craft is the heart and soul of teacher growth and professional development. But you don't have to "reinvent the wheel" every time you want to add to your skill set. Other teachers and teacher leaders have their secrets to share with you at this two-and-a-half day meeting.

Bring a team!
Learning together and collaborating with your colleagues is the best way to advance your practice. So use this opportunity to jump-start that process by bringing a team to share and explore all this important event has to offer.
