Summer break is officially underway and I have some exciting news to share! Just recently, the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) designated Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) as an "Academically High-Performing School District." CCPS met the stringent criteria within an elite group of only nine Florida districts. This honor is a direct testament to the dedication of our teachers, administrators, students, parents, and the community.
I would also like to congratulate our more than 3,200 graduates in the Class of 2019! Once again, our seniors set a record by earning close to $45 million in scholarship funds. We are #CCPSProud of our grads and are confident they have a bright future ahead of them!
This school year brought about so many success stories that happened every day on every campus. For a snapshot of some of these success stories, click here to take a look at our end-of-year "CCPS Success" publication that was included in the May 24th edition of the Naples Daily News.
As we enter summer, remember to read, read, and read some more! I encourage you to access our "Keep Learning Alive" resource to keep students engaged and learning over the summer. In addition to having fun and relaxing, summer is also a great time to get involved in extracurricular activities and set goals for the coming school year. Have a phenomenal summer!
